1.Using the Data in the Balance Sheet Attached, figure out the following:

a- ABC's capitalization or capital structure

Long-term debt ratio =Long-term debt/ (Long-term debt + Total Equity)

Long term debt= $500,000
Total Equity= $748,000

Long-term debt ratio =Long-term debt/ (Long-term debt + Total Equity)= 0.40 =500000 / 1248000

b- ABC's working capital

Current Assets= $898,000
Current Liabilities= $471,000
Working Capital = Current Assets- Current Liabilities= $427,000 =898000 - 471000

c- ABC's current ratio

Current ratio = Current Assets ÷ Current Liabilities= 1.91 =898000 ÷ 471000

d- ABC's Acid-test ratio

Acid-test ratio = (Cash + Short-term investments + Net current receivables) ÷ Total current liabilities
Or Acid-test ratio = (Current Assets - Inventory) ÷ Total current liabilities

Current Assets= $898,000 ...
