I've tried both, but its still rather vague.

debt-to-equity ratio

Gearing ratio is a more general term which encompasses debt-to-equity ratio, times interest earned (EBIT / total interest), equity ratio (equity / assets), and debt ratio (total debt / total assets) etc

I bet if you were on Who wants to be a millionaire youd ask the audience and even if 92% thought it was A youd do a 50/50

"divide a company's debt by its equity finance"

company debt / equity finance

How difficult can it be??

No kidding the UK banks are in the mess that they are in...

Ok simmer! I know you're trying to help, but as I said the definitions of both are very very similar. Will let you know what my lecturer says, and if your right I will shower you in praise.:thumbsup:
