Step 1

Sales, S = $17,300,

Current assets, CA = $3,650; Net fixed assets, NFA =  $10,850; Hence, total assets, A = CA + NFA = 3,650 + 10,850 = $ 14,500

Current liabilities, L =  $1,920

Profit Margin = PM = Net income / Sales = 1,830 / 17,300 = 10.58%

Dividends = 450; Hence retention ratio, R = 1 - dividend payout ratio =  1 - dividend / net income = 1 - 450 / 1,830 = 75.41%
