How does inflation distort ratio analysis comparisons for a cleaning company over time (trend
analysis) and for other cleaning companies that are being compared to qualitative factors of financial performance? Are only balance sheet

For each qualitative factor you addressed, identify the ratio(s) that could be impacted and explain why.
