Question: What is the current ratio for the dairy farm?

To find the ratio you have to follow these steps:

  • Find the current assets. In this example, the current assets are $50,000.
  •  Find the current liabilities. In this example, the current liabilities are $20,000.
  • Divide the current assets by the current liabilities.

Current ratio = current assets / current liabilities 

current ratio = 50,000 / 20,000 

current ratio = 2.5:1

This ratio is considered to be a good indication of financial health for this dairy farm.
