(Round answer to the nearest whole dollar, e.g. 5,275.) Notes payable can increase by $

Answer #1

**Existing Condition**

**Current ratio = Current assets/ Current
liablities**

Current assets = 1,233,265

Current liablities = Accounts payable + Notes payable ; ie 419,357 +351,663 =771,020

Substituting values in the equation ,Current ratio = Current assets/ Current liablities

we get

**1.6 =1,233,265/771,020**

**New Condition**

The company will raise funds from the short term debt market and use these in inventory

let the amount raised from short term debt market be Y; current ratio should not fall below 1.4

**Current ratio = Current assets/ Current
liablities**

1.4 =(1,233,265 + Y )/(771,020 +Y)

1.4 (771,020 +Y) =(1,233,265 + Y )

1,079,428 + 1.4Y =1,233,265 + Y

1.4Y - Y = 1,233,265 - 1,079,428

0.4Y = 153,837

Y =153,837/0.4

**Y =387,592.5**

So the company can borrow **$387,592.5** from notes
payable additionaly to finance in inventory without the
current ratio falling below 1.40
