## Calculator Use

This calculator will find solutions for up to four measures of the profitability of a business or organization - return on assets, return on equity, gross profit margin, operating profit margin, net profit margin, earnings per share, and price/earnings (P/E) ratio. The calculator can calculate one or two sets of data points, and will only give results for those ratios that can be calculated based on the inputs provided by the user.

• If you are analyzing two companies or a single company over two reporting periods, use both column A (primary) and B (secondary). For each data point and ratio that has a value in both columns, the change expressed as a percent increase or decrease will also be calculated.
