Dear Friend,

ROE= ROA x Equity Multiplier

15=10 (Equity Multiplier)
15/10= 1.5 = Equity Multiplier
Therefore, 1.50 is the Equity Multiplier.

ROA= (Profit Margin) (Total asset turnover)
10=2(Total Asset Turnover)
10/2=5= Total Asset Turnover

Therefore, 5 is the Total Asset Turnover.

Hope this helps..
Warm Regards,
