1

Return on assets = Profit margin x Assets turnover

.03 = profit margin x 1.5

.03/1.5 = .02 or 2 percent

therefore profit margin = 2 percent

2

Return on assets / Return on equity = .03/.05 = 0.6 or 60 percent of total assets is from equity, therefore debt = Assets - equity = 1-0.6 = 0.4 or 40 percent therefore debt ratio =40 percent
