=======================================
I have also attached the text pages with the example of how to calculate
the Cash Flow to Total Liabilities Ratio and the Return to Net Operating Ratio

These are initial calculations which I think are incorrect or incomplete:

(please refer to formulas in the two image files and solve
accordingly)

=======================================
Cash flow to total liabilities ratio:

Total Cash on Hand at end of year = 2,894,000,000
Total Liabilities = 17,859,000,000
2,894,000,000/17,859,000,000 = 0.1620 or

Return to net operating ratio:

Net operating margin:

Net operating profit X 100 / net operating revenues
6,597,000,000 X 100/25,851,000,000
=25.0686

Return on total assets:
(Profit before taxation) X 100 / average total assets
9,291,000,000 X 100/40,556,000,000
=22.2984

Return on equity:
(Profit before taxation - taxation) X 100 / average equity
(9,291,000,000 - 2,694,000,000) X 100/22,697,000,000
=29.0268

In your solution, please make sure you follow the formulas in the two image files
AND tell me where you pulled in each number from.
