gearing ratio = Long term liability(LTL) divide by (net assets plus LTL)
therefore gearing = 12000 /(8400+12000) x100 = 58.82%0 
Hi,
I think the equation is long term loan/net assets+long term loan
12000/20400 = 0.588 multiply by 100 = 58.8%0 
Thanks much i was not adding back the long term loan0

we've been taught debt over debt plus equity or:
Long term liabilities / net assets plus long term liabilities.
I'm just doing that paper now. Had completely forgotten about interest cover and oncorrectly took net profit (after interest) instead of operating profit (PBIT).
Finding the comments of the Financial position question bit tough.0 
So stuck on 2.2.c. Can anyone help?
I said do contract put because the Romanian cost per turbine for 10,000 units would be £650 plus £105 unavoidable fixed production costs, as opposed to £800 for Voltair. Answer doesn't factor in these FPC to contract out. Why?
I said don't contract out for 14000 units as economies of scale allow prod cost of £714.29 per turbine as opposed to £650 plus £75 contracted out.
HELP???0 
DOH!
Just scrolled down the answer page!
Time for a break I think.0
