d. A firm has a profit margin of 5.5% and an equity multiplier of 3.0. Its sales are \$290 million, and it has total assets of \$145 million. What is its ROE? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Debt To Capital Ratio = Total Debt / Total Capital

Share Capital = 15 * 4.5 mn = 67.5 mn

Debt To Capital Ratio = Total Capital - Equity Capital / Total Capital

= 135 - 67.50 / 135

= 50%

Total Assets Turnover = ROA / Profit Margin

= 13% / 8%

= 1.625 times

ROE = Profit MArgin * Total Assets Turnover * Equity Multiplier

21% = 8% * 1.625 * Equity Multiplier

Equity Multiplier = 21% / (8% * 1.625)

Equity Multiplier = 1.615 times

ROE = Profit Margin * Assets Turnover * Equity multiplier

PM = 5.5%

AT = 290 / 145 = 2

Equity multiplier = 3

ROE = 5.5% * 2 * 3 = 33%
