#### Question

From the following information calculate operating ratio: Revenue from operations Rs 6,80,000; Rate of Gross Profit on cost 25%; Selling expenses Rs 1,44,000; Administrative expenses Rs 73,000

#### Solution

Operating Ratio=`"Operating cost"/"Net sales"xx100`

Operating Cost = Cost of Goods Sold + Operating Expenses

Gross Profit =1/4 th of cost (or 1/5 of sales)

Gross Profit =`1/5xx680000-136000`

Let Cost of Goods Sold be 'x'

`136000=1/4xxx`

x = 544000(cost of goods sold)

Operating Cost = 5,44,000 + 1,44,000 + 73,000 = 7,61,000

Operating Ratio=`761000/680000xx100=111.91%`

Note : Operating expenses include selling and adminstrative expenses
