Benchmark of the company is 2/1

We should calculate the current ratio which is equal to = current assets / current liabilities


Current Assets = Cash+ Inventory+ Accrued Receivables + Marketable Securities

= 400,000 + 150,000 + 100,000 + 200,000

= 850,000

Current Liabilities = Account Payables + Short term debts + Accruals

= 100,000 + 150,000 + 250,000

= 500,000

Current Ratio = 850,000/500,000

Current Ratio = 1.7/1

It is lower than the benchmark


If a company wants to pay off its short-term MGT201 GDB Solution # 1 Fall 2021 debts of Rs 20,000 we will deduct the value of Rs 200,000 from cash in Current assets and from short-term debts in current liabilities.

 Current Assets = 850,000 + 200,000

= 650,000

Current Liabilities = 500,000 + 200,000

= 300,000

Now again calculate the value of Current Ratio

= 650,00/300,000

= 2.1/1

This is higher than the benchmark so the company should pay off its short-term debts.
