#### Question

From the Following information, compute Debt-Equity Ratio

Rs | |

Long-Term Borrowings | 8,00,000 |

Long-Term Provision | 4,00,000 |

Current Liabilities | 2,00,000 |

Non-Current-Assets | 14,40,000 |

Current -Assets | 3,60,000 |

#### Solution

Debt Equity Ratio = `"Long - Term Debt"/"Shareholder's Funds"`

Total Assets = total Liabilities + Shareholder’s Funds

Total Assets = Current Assets + Non-Current Assets

= 3,60,000 + 14,40,000 = Rs 18,00,000

Total Liabilities = Long-Term Borrowings + Long-Term Provisions + Current Liabilities

= 8,00,000 +4,00,000 + 2,00,000 = Rs 14,00,000

Therefore, Shareholder's funds = Total Assets -Total Liabilities

= 18,00,000 -14,00,000 = Rs 4,00,000

Long-Term Debt = Long Term Borrowings + Long-term Provisions

= 8,00,000 +4,00,000 = Rs 12,00,000

Therefore, Debt-equity ratio = `1200000/400000 = 3:1`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
