Over the past year, M. D. Ryngaert & Co. had an increase in its current ratio and a decline in its total assets turnover ratio. However, the company’s sales, cash and equivalents, DSO, and fixed assets turnover ratio remained constant. What balance sheet accounts must have changed to produce the indicated changes?

HI

**Current Ratio = Current Asset/ Current
liability**

**Asset Turnover ratio = Sales/Total Asset**

however sales, cash and equivalent DSO and fixed asset turnover ratio remain constant

**now fixed asset turn over ratio = Sales/fixed
asset**

Since sales has not changed and fixed asset turn over ratio is also constant that means fixed asset also will remain constant

that means in asset there is change in current assets.

now **DSO (Days sales outstanding) = (Account
Receivable/Total Sales)*number of days**

As we already know that Sales has not changed and DSO is also constant that means Account receivable is also constant.

So Current Asset has changes in Asset but Current Asset consists of following:

**Current Asset = Account Receivable +Cash and
equivalent+Inventory**

and we have seen that Account Receivable and Cash also is constant

**So in considering all scenario, Inventory in balance
sheet must have changed to produce all the changes.**

**Thanks**
