($24,000  $2,700) + ($300,000  $7,000) + ($9,500  $3,700) + ($97,500  $3,200) =
$21,300 + $293,000 + $5,800 + $94,300 = $414,400
12. What is Dorothy total current liabilities?

Nondiscretionary Expenses 
28,975 
Debt Repayment 
8,700 
Retirement Investments 
15,500 
Capital Expenditure 
 
16. Compute the Nondiscretionary Cost percentage
Nondiscretionary Cost/Total Income = Nondiscretionary Cost percentage
$28,975/($115,000+$1,500) = .2487 = 24.87%
17. Compute the Emergency Fund Ratio.
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.
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.
20. Compute the Discretionary Cost percentage
Discretionary Cost / Total Income = Discretionary Cost percentage
$8,000 / ($115,000 + $1,500) = .0687 = 6.87%
