Abstract

Ratio analysis is a numerical attempt to analyse the performance and financial position of a business. By converting absolute numbers into ratios, we have the ability to make comparisons between one firm and another, or between one period and another. Indeed, ratio analysis, which is the interpretation of ratios, cannot be meaningfully achieved without some form of comparison.
