The market-to-book ratio is 1.87

Step-by-step explanation:

From the data provided we have;

Number of shares of stock outstanding = 160,000

sales = \$1.94million

net income = \$126,400

price earnings ratio = 18.7

book value per share = \$7.92

To determine the market-to-book ratio, we solve;

earnings per share = net income ÷  number of shares of stock outstanding

= \$126400 ÷ 160000

= \$0.79

price per share = earnings per share ÷ price earnings ratio

= 0.79 x 18.7

= \$14.773

market-to-book ratio = price per share ÷ book value per share

= \$14.773 ÷ \$7.92

market-to-book ratio = 1.87
