Feedback: Part 1:

A. $60,000 ÷ $1,200,000 = 5%

B. $60,000 ÷ $300,000 = 20%

C. $60,000 ÷ 50,000 shares = $1.20

D. ($22,500 ÷ 50,000 shares) ÷ $9 = 5%

E. $9.00 ÷ $1.20 = 7.5

F. [$60,000 + ($25,000 x .60)] ÷ $500,000 = 15%

G. 20% - 15% = 5%

Part 2: The advantage is favorable to the stockholders if the ratio is positive, and it is unfavorable to the
stockholders if the ratio is negative because of the difference between earnings on total assets and the
cost of debt (interest expense net of income tax). For MNF Corporation, the company's stockholders
are benefiting from financial leverage because the cost of borrowing is less than the return to the
shareholders.
