  1. all this seems complicated to start this grand scale of a business down to only getting few thousand dollars income. on the other hand you have people shooting a ball in ring and gets paid millions of dollars a year. oh the world is not fair!

  2. Thanks so much for your amazing explanation for us. I can learn income statement better than before. In the class I really difficult to caught up a lesson with professor and I also can not understanding some point, but now I can understand 50% of it and I also learn to do some exercise too. ❤️😅

  3. plz correct me if I am wrong but ROA is net income divided by total assets not operating profit divided by total assets

  4. The feedback is unbearable for me to concentrate on the content. Untangle some wires, get a better mic, or fix in post.

  5. I thought about khan's academy while watching this video and saw channel name after it, omg it's khan's academy video ! awesome.

  6. Not trying to dis. This guy is amazing and I learn from him everyday. But just to put my .2 out there. ROA is Net income divided by Total Assets. Just for all the people to know, one must account for Continuing Operations and Non-Recurring events to get the total net income. The example above, though perfect for covering the basics, is assuming that the operating profit is the net income to get the ROA.
