Gross profit margin = 100 × (Gross marginQ4 2020 + Gross marginQ3 2020 + Gross marginQ2 2020 + Gross marginQ1 2020) ÷ (RevenueQ4 2020 + RevenueQ3 2020 + RevenueQ2 2020 + RevenueQ1 2020)
= 100 × (2,068 + 1,763 + 1,355 + 1,366) ÷ (6,056 + 5,438 + 4,797 + 5,144) = 30.57%

1 Q4 2020 Calculation
ROA = 100 × (Net income (loss) attributable to MicronQ4 2020 + Net income (loss) attributable to MicronQ3 2020 + Net income (loss) attributable to MicronQ2 2020 + Net income (loss) attributable to MicronQ1 2020) ÷ Total assets
= 100 × (988 + 803 + 405 + 491) ÷ 53,678 = 5.01%
