PedroEdmundo ROA=NI/ASSET
Xocrevilo Is net income provided in this question?!
Kuki Net income would be your operating profit.

ROA = Op Profit / Identifiable Asset = 0.9 / 15.1
= 5.96% approx 6%
brandsat Operating profit is before taxes, NI would be lower, so only logical answer is 5.7 %.

Why not ??
Smiley225 Good logic brandsat, BUT difficult to assume what tax rate to apply as it is not given.
Lamkerst ROA=EBIT/Assets, not NI/Assets.
Assets (donominator) belong to all security holders, so numerator should also incorporate returns for all the security holders, not only equity holders. Otherwise, it is inconsistent.
gill15 Return on Assets can be calculated many ways...not just because NI is not given you use operating ROA = OI/Avg Assets.
Oksanata the key word here is "segment" . Segment ROA = Segment profit(loss)/segment asset. Such ROA measures the OPERATING income generated per the level of segment assets (investment).
