I am so weak at this new class I started no matter how many times I read my textbook, I cannot understand how to calculate ratios can someone please show me or guide me how to work these problems, I would really appreciate it, thank you please help me..

Compute the following ratios from Arcadia Hospital’s 2005 financial statements:

o Current ratio

o Total asset

Compare these ratios with the 1999 median for all U.S. acute care hospitals listed in Table 4-2.

Answer the following and explain your answer: What was the financial status of Arcadia in 2005?

Compute the following ratios from Arcadia Hospital’s 2005 financial statements:

o Asset/equity

o Long-term debt/equity

o Total margin

Explain whether the ratios are leverage or profitability ratios. If a leverage ratio, is it coverage or capital structure?

What is the difference between the two? If a profitability ratio, discuss why it is not completely satisfactory for measuring an organization’s profitability.

What can these ratios tell us about Arcadia?
