Total assets, December 31, 2013             $499,148

Total assets, December 31,2014                580,682

Total                                                        $1,079,830

Net Total assets =$1,079,830/2 = $539,915

Interest = $24,352

Net income = $64,734

Rate of return on total assets = Net income + Interest/ Total Net assets

                                                 =$64,734 + $24,352/$539,915



Rate of return on total assets% = 0.165*100=16.5%
