Quick ratio confusion - Financial perfomance

Hello :)

So quick ratio is

Current assets - inventories
current liabilities

Although in a question for BPP they have either forgotten to take it off or my understanding is a bit off?

Current Assets = £435
Inventories = £105
Liabilities = £140

My answer = 2.34

£435 - £105

Although the book answer is : 3.1


do you take inventory off or just not add it on?

    As long as you're reading the book right, their answer is wrong - they've used the current ratio rather than the quick (acid test) ratio (which you've written the right calculation for, but I get 2.36!).

    I don't like BPP questions, they word them oddly I think. Inventories would normally be included in the current assets total so then you would deduct it or just add the other liabilities together without it and use that total. Took Financial statements today... fingers crossed! And good luck xx
