Current ratio=Current assetsCurrentliabilities

3. Quick ratio

Quick ratio =Quick assets Currentliabilities=$1,936,000$880,000=2.2

Description:

Acid-Test Ratio is the ratio denotes that this ratio is a more rigorous test of solvency than the current ratio. It is determined by dividing quick assets and current liabilities. The acceptable acid-test ratio is 0.90 to 1.00. It is referred as quick ratio. Use the following formula to determine the acid-test ratio:

Acid Ratio=Quick assetsCurrentliabilities

4. Accounts receivable turnover

Accounts receivables turnover ratio}=Net credit salesAverage accounts receivables=$10,850,000$542,500=20.0

Accounts receivables turnover ratio}=Net credit salesAverage accounts receivables

Average accounts receivable is determined as follows:

Average accounts receivables }(Opening accounts receivables + Closing accounts receivables )2=$585,000+$500,0002=$542,500

5. Number of days’ sales in receivables
