Determine the total assets of Novak Corp. at December 31, 2020. Presented below is selected information related to Novak Corp.

Accounts Payable $4,440 Salaries and Wages Expense $24,420
Cash 13,320 Notes Payable 37,000
Advertising Expense 8,880 Rent Expense 14,504
Service Revenue 79,920 Accounts Receivable 19,980
Equipment 42,920 Dividends 11,100


Answer: $76,220


Total Assets = Current Assets + Fixed Assets

Current Assets = Cash + Accounts Receivable

= 13,320 + 19,980

= $33,300

Fixed Assets = Equipment = $42,920

Total Assets = 33,300 + 42,920

= $76,220

During 2019, Ocean Consulting had the following transactions with it clients (customers): On February 1, 2019, the company received cash of $5,500 from clients in payment of their account balances as of December 31, 2018. On November 1, 2019, the company received $2,500 cash as payments in advance for services to be performed in 2020. The company received a total of $15,500 in cash for services that were performed during 2019. The company sent bills totaling $4,500 to clients for services performed during 2019; this amount was unpaid as December 31, 2019.As a result of these transactions during 2019, the firm's stockholders' equity will:__________





According to the given situation, the computation of stockholder equity is shown below:-

Stockholder equity = Service in cash + Sent bills

= $15,500 + $4,500

= $20,000

Therefore for computing the stockholder equity we simply applied the above formula so that the correct value could come

Hence, the stockholder equity is $20,000

In 2009, a computer manufacturer had a labor productivity of 3.33 units per labor hour. In 2010, the computer manufacturer had a labor productivity of 4.27 units per labor hour. The percent change in labor productivity is:



The percent change in labor productivity is 22%


Listing out the parameters given:

labor productivity (2009) = 3.33 units/hr,

labor productivity (2010) = 4.27 units/hr

To calculate the percent change in labor productivity, we have it thu:

percent change in labor productivity = [labor productivity (2010) - labor productivity (2009)] ÷ labor productivity (2010)

Let's assume 'Labor productivity' = LP

in LP = (LP _2_0_1_0 - LP _2_0_0_9)/(LP _2_0_1_0) * 100% =(4.27 - 3.33)/(4.27) * 100%

in LP = (0.94)/(4.27) * 100% = 22%

in LP = 22%

This shows an increase in computer manufacturing from 2009 to 2010 by 22%


percentage change in labor productivity = 28.23%


In 2009 the computer manufacturer had a labor productivity of 3.33 units per labor hour.  In 2010 the productivity increased to 4.27 units per labor hour.

The percentage change in labor productivity can be calculated  as

change in labor productivity = New labor productivity - Old labor productivity

percentage change in labor productivity = change in labor productivity/old labor productivity  × 100

Old labor productivity = 3.33 unit

New labor productivity = 4.27 unit

change in labor productivity = 4.27 - 3.33 = 0.94

percentage change in labor productivity = 0.94/3.33  × 100

percentage change in labor productivity = 94/3.33

percentage change in labor productivity = 28.2282282282

percentage change in labor productivity = 28.23%

Roman loves corn bread. He buys corn meal and wheat flour in order to make corn bread. His recipe calls for two cups of corn meal and one cup of flour for each batch that he bakes. More corn bread is better for Roman. He can bake fractions of a batch, but has no use for corn meal or flour that is left over. What of the following is Roman’s utility function on cups of corn meal, denoted by c, and cups of flour, denoted by f?(A) U(c,f)=min{c,2f}
(B) U(c,f)=min{2c,f}
(C) U(c,f)=min{2c,3f}
(D) U(c,f)=min{3c,sf}
(D) U(c,f)=2c+3f



(B) U(c,f)=min{2c,f}


This is an example of Leontif utility function which states that the preferences of a consumer is to a constant ratio of quantities of two or more goods in his demand bundles and having an extra unit of a single good will not increase the utility of the consumer and will make the extra unit to waste. But having more units of all the goods in the demand bundle which maintain the constant ratio will increase the utility of the consumer.

A good example usually used in economics is that of a pair of shoe. Having one right and one left of a type of shoe gives a consumer utility at a constant ratio of 1:1, and increasing each leg by multiple of one at every point in time will increase the utility of the consumer, while increasing just only one makes the utility not to change. For instance, having only two left shoe will not give the consumer any utility and make both the left shoe useless.

In the question, the ratio of cups of corn meal, denoted by c, and cups of flour, denoted by f, is 2:1. This implies that to increase the utility of the consumer, c has to increase by a multiple of 2 at every point in time while f has to increase by one at the same point in time to maintain the constant ratio of 2:1. Increasing only c by 2 or only f by 1 will maintain the constant ratio and it will lead to a waste of the increased unit of the affected commodity.

Therefore, option (B) U(c,f)=min{2c,f} is the correct answer that gives a constant ratio of 2:1 = 2c:f.
