Solutions to Questions and Problems
NOTE: All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet. Many problems require multiple
steps. Due to space and readability constraints, when these intermediate steps are included in this
solutions manual, rounding may appear to have occurred. However, the final answer for each problem is
found without rounding during any step in the problem.
Basic
1. Using the formula for NWC, we get:
NWC = CA – CL
CA = CL + NWC = \$3,720 + 1,370 = \$5,090
2. We need to find net income first. So:
Profit margin = Net income / Sales
Net income = Sales(Profit margin)
Net income = (\$29,000,000)(0.08) = \$2,320,000
3. Receivables turnover = Sales / Receivables
Receivables turnover = \$3,943,709 / \$431,287 = 9.14 times
4. Inventory turnover = COGS / Inventory
Inventory turnover = \$4,105,612 / \$407,534 = 10.07 times
5. Total debt ratio = 0.63 = TD / TA
Substituting total debt plus total equity for total assets, we get:
0.63 = TD / (TD + TE)
6. Net income = Addition to RE + Dividends = \$430,000 + 175,000 = \$605,000
Earnings per share = NI / Shares = \$605,000 / 210,000 = \$2.88 per share
Dividends per share = Dividends / Shares = \$175,000 / 210,000 = \$0.83 per share

7. ROE = (PM)(TAT)(EM)
8. This question gives all of the necessary ratios for the DuPont Identity except the equity multiplier, so,
using the DuPont Identity:
ROE = (PM)(TAT)(EM)
9. Decrease in inventory is a source of cash
Decrease in accounts payable is a use of cash
10. Payables turnover = COGS / Accounts payable
Payables turnover = \$28,384 / \$6,105 = 4.65 times
Days’ sales in payables = 365 days / Payables turnover
11. New investment in fixed assets is found by:
12. The equity multiplier is:
EM = 1 + D/E
EM = 1 + 0.65 = 1.65
