**Debt to Capital Ratio Formula** is used to find the riskiness of the company. If the result given by the **formula** is greater then 1 for any company then the company has more debt as compared to its **capital** and the company is riskier.

If the result is less then 1 then the capital of the company is greater then the debt of the company and the company is less risky for investors.

Debt to Capital Ratio Formula can be calculated by dividing the total debt of the company by the sum of shareholder’s **equity** and total debt.

**Debt to Capital Ratio Formula = Total Debt/(Total Debt + Shareholder’s Equity)**
