Hi,
I'm trying to write a paper on the financial statements of a German company (not that that's relevant). I am having a hard time understanding exactly what return on assets means. And it's specific difference from Return on Equity and Return on Investment. I have formulas for all three - but what does it all mean?!?!?!?!

Anyone?
