Homework Answers

Answer #1

Answer:

e. Decrease, short-term debt, cash

Current ratio = Current assets / Current liabilities
Quick ratio = (Current assets - Inventory) / Current liabilities
Cash ratio = Cash & cash equivalents / Current liabilities

So, when it is seen that Joez Inc has increased its current ratio, quick ratio and cash ratio, it means that they have seen a considerable increase in current assets and decrease in current liabilities.

As a business consultant, I think that Joez has sent a signal to the market that it is a stronger company than Carojo because it has seen growth in its assets side and reduction of liabilities whereas Carojo Inc has not seen any growth, it is consistent it its working. Therefore, it can be said that Joez Inc is a stronger company.
