16. Compute the Nondiscretionary Cost percentage

  • $27.87%

Nondiscretionary Cost/Total Income = Nondiscretionary Cost percentage

$28,975/($115,000+$1,500) = .2487 = 24.87%

17. Compute the Emergency Fund Ratio.

  • $5.84

Liquid Assets/Monthly Household Expenses = Emergency Fund Ratio

Liquid Assets = Current assets

Liquid Assets = $2,500 + $12,000 + $3,500 = $18,000

Monthly Household Expenses = Nondiscretionary + Discretionary Expenses / 12

Monthly Household Expenses = $28,975 + $8,000 /12 = $36,975/12 =$3,081.25

$18,000/$3,081.25 = 5.84%

18. Compute the Current Ratio.

  • $1.04

Current Ratio = Current Assets/Current Liabilities

Current Liabilities = $9,500 + $7,800 = $17,300

Current Ratio = $18,000/$17,300 = 1.04%

19. Compute the Gross Savings percentage.

  • $68.26%
Finance 4320 Question Answer img2

20. Compute the Discretionary Cost percentage

  • $6.87%,,

Discretionary Cost / Total Income = Discretionary Cost percentage

$8,000 / ($115,000 + $1,500) = .0687 = 6.87%
