The equity multiplier is measured as total:
 A equity divided by total assets. B assets minus total equity, divided by total assets. C assets divided by total equity. D assets plus total equity, divided by total debt.
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The equity multiplier is calculated by dividing a company’s total asset value by the total equity held in the company’s stock. A high equity multiplier indicates that a company is using a high amount of debt to finance its assets. A low equity multiplier means that the company has less reliance on debt.

Detailed explanation-2: -Equity Multiplier = Average Total Assets ÷ Average Shareholders’ Equity.

Detailed explanation-3: -The Equity-To-Asset ratio specifically measures the amount of equity the business or farm has when compared to the total assets owned by the business or farm. To determine the Equity-To-Asset ratio you divide the Net Worth by the Total Assets. This ratio is measured as a percentage.

Detailed explanation-4: -Financial Leverage (Equity Multiplier) is the ratio of total assets to total equity. Financial leverage exists because of the presence of fixed financing costs – primarily interest on the firm’s debt. If the company uses more debt than equity, the higher will be the financial leverage ratio.
