I'm trying to calculate this and I'm finding suggestions for different numerators which give vastly different results.  

All of these suggested numerators have Total Equity as the denominator:

A: 

Short-Term Debt
+ Current Portion of Long-term Debt
+  Long Term Debt

B:

Total Liabilities

C:

Total Long-Term Debt

I'm seeing more advice for using B but because the results are so very different I want to check with others.

Many thanks
