Each of the ratios stated above has a numerator and a denominator. For
example: Net profit/(average) Total assets. The net profit is the numerator
and the total assets the denominator. The ratio will be improved by
increasing net profit at a faster rate than total assets or decreasing net
profit at a slower rate.

When discussing a change in a ratio you should:

* measure the ratio

* show how it was calculated

* explain the changes to the numerator and denominator that caused the
ratio to change

Looking at key items in the ratios in the tables above.
