$ __________

What will be the firm's quick ratio after Nelson has raised the maximum amount of short-term funds? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

_____________

Answer #1

- Current Assets = $1,455,000

Current Liabilities = $485,000

Current Ratio = 1.8

Let the Increase in Short-Term Debt be X

Current Ratio = Current Assets/Current Liabilities

1.8 = $1455,000/($485,000 + X)

$873,000 + 1.8X = $1455,000

$582,000 = 1.8X

X = $323,333.33

So, **Nelson's short-term debt (notes payable) increase
without pushing its current ratio below 1.8 is
$323,333**

b). Quick ratio = Quick Assets/Current Liabilities

where, Quick Asset = Current Assets - Inventory = $1455,000 - $355,000

= $1100,000

- Current Liabilities = $485,000 + $323,333 = $808,333

Quick ratio = $1100,000/$808,333

**Quick ratio = 1.36 times**
