    Financial ratios question

    Hi all, where do I go to get help on ratio equations. I am busy studying and have to do capital ratio and liquidity ratio. I received the following information, Capital and reserves R40 million, Total assets R2500 million, Risk weighted assets (what is this) R1500 million, Total income R250 million and total expenses R230 million

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks appreciate your help. They don't mention capital and liquidity ratios.

    Sorry going through a bad patch, have family being very sick, cancer.

    Do not know if I miss the boat.

    I suspect
    capital ratio = asset financing ratio
    liquidity ratio = current ratio (or solvency ratio )
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
