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 answer to two decimal places.

Answer #1

Let the 'x' be the increase in shortterm debt and increase in inventory at the same time

Target current ratio = Current asset / Current liabilities = 2

So 2 =[ 1260,000 + x] / [ 450,000 + x ]

900,000 + 2x = 1260,000 + x

900,000 + x = 1260,000

So X = 1260,000-900,000 = 360,000

So **increase in shortterm debt** and increase in
inventory at the same time is **360,000**

Now will calculate quick ratio after change

**Quick ratio** = Current asset - Inventory /
Current liability

=[ 1260,000+ 360,000 - (300,000+360,000) ] / 450,000+360,000

=960,000 / 810,000

**= 1.19**
