Enter the total debt (\$) and the total capital (\$) into the Debt to Capital Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Debt to Capital Ratio.

## Debt to Capital Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Debt to Capital Ratio.

DCR = D / C * 100

• Where DCR is the Debt to Capital Ratio (%)
• D is the total debt (\$)
• C is the total capital (\$)

## How to Calculate Debt to Capital Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Debt to Capital Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total debt (\$).
• The total debt (\$) is given as: 40,000.
2. Next, determine the total capital (\$).
• The total capital (\$) is provided as: 100,000.
3. Finally, calculate the Debt to Capital Ratio using the equation above:

DCR = D / C * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

DCR = 40,000 / 100,000 * 100 = 40.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total debt (\$) = 60,000

total capital (\$) = 500,000
