If the sales outlook for the coming three years was only 20,000,000 and B.E. continued producing at the rate of 30,000,000 units, a total of 10,000,000 units would be dumped into ending inventory at the end of each year once again reducing costs of goods sold and falsely increasing income.

C) The answers are different because if the interest is left untouched, it makes the principal amount higher each year, giving more money after 10 years.
Now the individuals of the town have an option of going to one of the 10 physicians and therefore can be more choosey as to the price they pay. If the new physicians want to establish a clientele they would be wise to charge less than the first physician, let’s say $250 per office visit. Eventually, in order to keep business going, the first physician will also have to lower his price to $250 as well. Another ten years goes by and there is now 20 physicians in the same town. Once again the price for an office visit will drop as individuals have more physicians to choose from and each physician wants to develop a clientele.
