Note that the actual state rate is reduced by 25% to allow for the deductibility of state income taxes on the federal income tax return. Thus, she should choose the corporate bond. When the state rate is 10%, Dana would achieve the following returns from the Treasury bond or the corporate bond: The Treasury bond would still yield $1,125 or $30,000 x [.05 x (1-.25)] after tax because state rates don’t affect after- tax returns from Treasury bonds. The corporate bond yields $1,215 or $30,000 x [.06 x (1 - .25 - .10(1-.25))] after tax. Again, note that the actual state rate is reduced by 25% to allow for the deductibility of state income taxes on the federal income tax return.
What is the probability that a randomly selected mature jalapeño fruit is between 1.5 and 4 inches long? (5 pts) 18. Find the 90th percentile of the jalapeño fruit length distribution. (5 pts) 19. If a random sample of 100 mature jalapeño fruits is selected, what is the standard deviation of the sample mean?
Answers to Week Two Homework Assignment ( Assignment 1) Chapter 7 Exercise 13 You should choose a sample size of 1000 people. Although the law of averages tells you that the average of 1000 people is very likely to be close to 60 inches -- and thus under 65 inches tall -- here you are winning a prize for each person over 65 inches tall, not when the average of all the people is over 65 inches tall. Having a larger sample will give you more chances at getting the prize. The law of averages pertains to the variability of a sample average -- not variability in individual data values themselves. Here, we are concerned with individual data values.
If other things change, then one cannot directly apply supply/demand analysis. Sometimes supply and demand are interconnected, making it impossible to hold other things constant (Colander, The Limitation of Supply/Demand Analysis, 2010). “In supply/demand analysis, you would look at the effect that fall would have on workers’ decisions to supply labor, and on business’s decision to hire workers. However, there are also other effects (Colander, The Limitation of Supply/Demand Analysis, 2010). “For instance, the fall in the wage lowers people’s income and thereby reduces demand.
Store Sensitivities Even if this store has 18.1% lower sales than the forecasted level by R&P, it can achieve the accepted NPV of prototype, besides, construction cost can increase to near $10 million and still the project can achieve the expected NPV of the P04. If the stores sales decline by 10%, the project’s NPV will decrease by almost $4 millions which provides an accepted NPV of 13,340 K$ which is still above the accepted NPV of P04. Variance to prototype The Store NPV of $17,046K is $7,326K above Prototypical Store NPV. Mainly Cost of Land ($3,675K) and sales (3,603K) followed by positive benefits from real state tax are contributing to this positive variation form P04
In contrast, Supply side economists believe that unemployment is caused by the supply side of the economy not functioning properly. Extract E states how the recent strong performance of our labour market has “to some extent, been based on a foundation of macro economic stability“. This macroeconomic stability has been reached by using “appropriate fiscal and monetary policies to manage aggregate demand“. The fall in unemployment from 7.1% to 4.7% from 1997 to 2006 shown in Extract D is therefore evidence that managing aggregate demand can contribute to an effective reduction in unemployment. Managing aggregate demand(eg) can be self-financing because when the increase in aggregate demand causes an increase in employment, it means that fewer people would be on unemployment benefits.
If the company has low skilled employees than they will not be making the most out of their assets because there will be more wastage in production, this can result in an increase in the amount being able to provide to the public. If production levels fall then the company will make less money because they will not be able to see as much to the public as they could if they did have highly skilled workers. Therefore it is important to review the workforce plan constantly to understand when more highly skilled workers will be needed. External The fact that the current market has a global shortage of mining professionals does cause a problem to the company’s long term projects. This is because the company will need highly skilled workers to maximise production without a large range to choose from.
One is that the amount of over stock is lowered which means a reduction in the storage space required which saves rent and the costs associated with insuring the additional stock. Additional stocks of items are only obtained when they are needed which means that less working capital is tied up in an excess of stock. There is also less likelihood that if the stock would be perishable that it would become obsolete or out of date. JIT also helps to avoid the buildup in stock should there be sudden changes required for the product or is the change in demand decreases. Finally, by employing the JIT manufacturing process this will require less time spent on checking or reworking the product because the JIT process emphasizes getting the work done right the first time.
If they are out of season and output is down, less help is needed so layoffs will occur. Next you want to make sure your company is well respected based on the moves you make. Government plays an important role in the economy. By manipulating the arsenal of tools within a fiscal policy, the government can either speed up or slow down the economy depending upon what issues needs to be addressed socially and economically. By completing this simulation I have learned how decisions relating to fiscal policy can affect the economy.
If there is no minimum amount the company has to pay, it can save some costs that it might otherwise incur. 2. The company can hire more people at a lower income and in fact decrease unemployment 3. B. Deprives students and low skilled workers an opportunity to make an earning (Rector) 1. Minimum wage actually make low-income citizens and students worse off by pricing them out of a job due to their minimal skill sets and resources 2.
