Using these figures and assuming that both heavy and medium users (those buying between 1-9 pounds of cyano-acrylates per year) are potential customers; the maximum size of this market is estimated at 81,000 purchases. At 157.50 per unit, even with 100% penetration the market will not be worth more than $12.77 million in sales, with a more realistic estimate being $ 4 million in sales. The disparate nature of usage patterns across firms make it difficult to identify critical variables that can form the basis of segmenting the market. Possible ways to segment customers is on the basis of nature of the firm (small firm vs. large firm); sector of business (which industrial markets to target), current usage behavior (heavy CA usage vs low CA usage), nature of work (OEM vs MRO), and brand loyalty (SuperBonder usage vs competitors). Given that data about
The firm charges $100 for labor for the first 10 feet. After that, the cost of the labor for each succeeding 10 feet is $25 more than the preceding 10 feet. That means the next ten feet will cost $125, then $150 and so on. How much will it cost to build a 90-foot tower? (Bluman, 2011) Here is how I would work out the problem I can see that the price changes every ten feet that we build upward the price increases $25 dollars, which is added to the previous price.
The bonds mature in 10 years. The firm’s average tax rate is 30% and its marginal tax rate is 34%. b. A new common stock issue that paid a $1.75 dividend last year. The par value of the stock is $15, and earnings per share have grown at a rate of 8% per year.
The second series is an uneven cash flow stream, but it contains an annuity of $400 for 8 years. The series could also be thought of as a $100 annuity for 10 years plus an additional payment of $100 in Year 2, plus additional payments of $300 in Years 3 through 10. 8-3 True, because of compounding effects—growth on growth. The following example demonstrates the point. The annual growth rate is I in the following equation: $1(1 + I)10 = $2.
Its cost was $12,000, it has a ten-year life, and straight-line depreciation will be taken. SOLUTION: 1.

But the latest United Nations projection puts the figure at little more than a quarter of that - less than 11 billion. That's still 50% more than we have today, but it shows the UN expects much slower population growth in the decades to come than in decades gone by. Some might consider that an increase in the world population from seven billion to 11 billion by 2100 still represents out-of-control population growth. But this UN figure - contained in its World Population Prospects, published every two years - is considered by one expert, at least, to be much too
Economic/Political Analysis -Are the poor and the wealthy equally concerned about the “freedom from fear”? Compare and contrast both speeches to answer this question.- From President Franklins Roosevelts speech and Barack Obamas speech, the poor and wealthy people are fairly concerned about “freedome of fear.” There are quite a few things that a lot of people in this world are in fear of. President also said in his speech that we shouldn’t fear anything, but fear itself. It also, doesnt mean if you are not as rich in this world as others around you, you can not do the things wealthy people do to improve in the world. President Franklin Roosevelt also said in one of his speeches that, you dont have to be rich to be happy in life, happiness in life comes from accomplishment.
There was a bill passed by the United State Senate which increased the minimum wage to $7.25 in 2009. Although the minimum wage has increased, a family of three who earn minimum wage would still fall below the federal poverty level. A full time minimum wage earner, based on a 52 week
In the Obama vs. McCain election of 2012, Obama’s victory was strengthened by the fact that there was a much higher turnout of the young voters and voters that are parts of minority groups. Whereas, a great amount of Republican voters abstained for different reasons. This is a practical example of Differential Abstention and how it can affect general elections. To conclude, it can be shown that differential abstention can play a large part in who will win in any election, as shown by Obama in 2008. There are many reasons as to why people abstain from voting, starting from it being too cold outside and ranging to people not bothering to go out and
However, there are people who are feared it will not be good and has an opposite impact for all concerned. It looks like a win-to-win scenario; it creates a good amount of jobs needed and reduces tariffs that benefit all members involved, but some are concerned about the agreement will benefit some specific groups and some will not. The problem is while the cost of labors in the US is expensive the labor’s cost of neighbor countries is cheaper; this leads to the jobs loss for the American people and workers. For example, Columbia is still one of the most dangerous places on Earth because of the government and its persecutions for those who against it; just like Chinese government. Next, the working condition for Columbian workers is poor and that concerns of some the human right group.
