## ROA Example | Return on Assets Ratio Example

###### Example 1:

Let us consider the problem: A company has \$20,000 in total assets and generates \$5,000 in net income. Calculate return on assets ratio?

###### Solution:

We can calculate the Return on Assets using the given formula.

#### Formula:

Return on Assets Ratio = (Net Income / Total Assets) × 100

Substituting the values in the formula,

Return on Assets Ratio = (5000 / 20000) × 100 = 0.25 x 100 = \$ 25

Therefore, ROA Ratio is \$ 25.

###### Example 2:

Refer the below return on assets ratio example problem with solution.

Let us consider the problem: A person has a total assets of Rs. 1,345,000 and it earned to net income of Rs. 213,000 at the end of the year. Calculate its return on assets ratio.

###### Solution:

Substituting the values in the above given formula,

ROA Ratio = (213000 / 1345000) × 100 = 0.1583 x 100 = Rs. 15.83

Therefore, the value of Return on Assets is Rs. 15.836.
