Hello,
i always work out Return on capital employed as Operating profit / divided by Capital Employed (in this case would be Noncurrent liabilities 600 + equity 700 = 1300)
290/1300 * 100 = 22.31%  not sure why it's 1% out but it's definately the correct way to work it out.
Hope this helps!0 
Thank you very much!
I knew its simple and have done it before, but suddenly got confused about capital employed.. as found formula in web...0 
I remember it using the letters as I always forgets so ROCE = O for Operating Profit over your CE = Capital Employed.0
