    JW & Associates of Boston has two divisions that operate in Allston and Chelsea. Selected data on the two divisions follow:

    Division
    Allston Chelsea
    Sales...... $9,000,000 $20,000,000
    Net operating income... $630,000 $1,800,000
    Average operating assets... $3,000,000 $10,000,000

    1. Compute the return on investment for each division.

    2. Assume the company evaluates performance using residual income and that the minimum required rate of return for any division is 16%. Compute the residual income for each division.

    3. Is the Chelsea division's greater residual income an indication that it is better managed?
