1. What was the total future minimum lease payments as of August 31, 2010? 2. Using two-thirds of future minimum lease payments representing principal, what would be the estimate for principal at August 31, 2010? 3. How material are operating leases in relation to capital leases? Chapter 8: Problem 8-5

a. 2011 sales were 122.72% of those in 2010.
a. \$1,589,150 / \$1,294,966 = 122.72%
b. 2011 net earnings were 100.80% of those in 2010.
a. \$138,204 / \$137,110 = 100.80%
c. Calculate the following for 2011 and 2010:
1. Net Profit Margin:
• 2011: \$149,260 / \$1,589,150 = 9.39%
• 2010: \$149,760 / \$1,294,966 = 11.56%
2. Return on Assets:
• 2011: \$149,260 / \$1,437,636 = 10.38%
• 2010: \$149,760 / \$1,182,110 = 12.67%
3. Total Asset Turnover:
• 2011: \$1,589,150 / 1,437,636 = 1.11 times • 2010: \$1,294,966 / \$1,182,110 = 1.10 times 4. DuPont analysis:
• 2011: 10.42* = 9.39% x 1.11
• 2010: 10.72* = 11.53% x 1.10
*Rounding causes the difference from the 10.38%...
