Use the above information to determine this company’s cash flows from investing activities. (Amounts to be deducted should be indicated with a minus sign.)

Answers

Answer:

The company’s cash flows from investing activities is $221,100

Explanation:

Cash flow from investing activities:

It records that transactions which is related to the purchase and sale of long term assets. The purchase of fixed assets has outflow of cash so, it is deducted whereas the sale of fixed assets has inflow of cash so, it is added.

The cash flow from investing activities is shown below:

Add : Sale of equipment (Book value - loss) = ($65,300 - $14,000) = $51,300

Less : Purchase of new truck = - $89,000

Add: Sale of land = $198,000

Add: Sale of long term investment = $60,800

So, the cash flow from operating activities :

= $51,300 - $89,000 + $198,000 + $60,800

= $221,100

The other cost is not related to the investing activities. Therefore, it is not considered in the computation part.

Hence, the company’s cash flows from investing activities is $221,100

Explanation:

Blockbusting is an illegal act. It is a manipulative method used by real estate agents to get homeowners to sell or rent their property at a cheaper rate by lying to them that the socioeconomic demography of the neighborhood is changing, so they have to sell before it is too late.

Standards are used at the beginning of the period during to budget and at the end of the period to evaluate performance. C. Variances falling outside of an acceptable range of outcomes do not require investigation. D. A price​ (rate) variance calculates the difference between what a company paid and what it expected to pay for its production input. E. A favorable quantity​ (efficiency) variance indicates that a company used less input than allowed for the actual level of output.

Answers

Answer:

C. Variances falling outside of an acceptable range of outcomes do not require investigation.

Explanation:

The purpose of any business is to generate profit which is the difference between the revenues and all cost related to business.

In order to define suitable selling price and acceptable cost, all figures are to be set in standard range; any variance outside the standard, even lower or higher, must be investigated then the company can make proper adjustments.

In the end, the right standard is not only achievable but also maximize for the profit set.

So while other statements are true about standard and variance, the statement (C) is totally wrong because it said “Variances falling outside of an acceptable range of outcomes do not require investigation”
