In the case of the Callaway Golf Company, the current ratio is found by this equation, 383.462/130.160=2.9461. In comparison to the other four companies Callaway Golf Company has a higher ratio which tells me that they have a higher total asset compared to there total liabilities. In terms of being the least liquid based company would lead me to believe that Papa Johns depends more on loans to keep the company going that gross profit....
