I am currently in a graduate master's level course in "corporate finance" and since math has never been a strong point for me, was needing some help on a two-part assignment that consists of Excel Calculations to help show how you derive financial ratios and to write up a word document report of it consisting of both an introduction and conclusion in APA format, no plagiarism since it will be checked. Here are the following assignment details:
