    Net Income $180,000

    Interest expense 10,000

    Earnings before tax = $170,000

    Total assets at the beginning of the year 810,000

    Total assets at the end of the year 740,000

    Total common stockholders' equity at the beginning of the year 520,000

    Total common stockholders' equity at the end of the year 510,000

    Return on equity = Net income divided by Shareholders equity

    = $170,000 / $510,000

    = 33.33%
