Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer. Attached is a link that will have the answers. I would like to note that you have no inventory on your balance sheet, therefor you can't calculate the Inventory ratio. Also the accounts receivable ratio requires an average balance and because you don't have 2009 balance sheet, the 2010 ratio can't be calculated.

Let me know if you have any questions before you rate my answer. A positive rating is what I strive for. Regards Dave

Hello,


 


Thank you for your assistance, is there a way for the work to be shown or at the least explained to show how those answers were calculated? That was also a part of my question.

If you look at the formula in excel you can see what part of the income statement of balance sheet was used by the balance. Example would be current ration, where I took the current assets and divided by current liabilities. This is the same way for all of the ratios. Let me know if you need further assistance or if you want me to put the definition of each ratio next to the answer. Regards Dave

Hello,


 


If you could put the definition of each ratio next to the answer that would be most helpful to me so that I have a better understanding.
