Income Statement
Molteni Motors Inc. recently reported \$6 million of net income. Its EBIT was \$13 million,
and its tax rate was 40%. What was its interest expense? (Hint: Write out the headings for
an income statement, and then fill in the known values. Then divide \$6 million net
income by 1 T = 0.6 to find the pre­tax income. The difference between EBIT and
taxable income must be the interest expense. Use this procedure to work some of the
other problems.)
