In my opinion your formula is wrong. In the quick ratio we are interested in liquidity, so that is why we divide all assets which are quickly convertible into cash (= current assets) by the current liabilities. So current assets / current liabilities.
I don't see why you would want to subtract the stock and add prepaid expenses from/to the current assets.   0 caligo
