Answer 2
Answer:

Final answer:

Cyclical unemployment arises when business activity in the macroeconomy declines. It is directly linked to the ups and downs in the business cycle. When the economy moves into a recession, cyclical unemployment increases as businesses lay off workers.

Explanation:

Cyclical unemployment arises when: business activity in the macroeconomy declines. This is option D. It refers to the unemployment which is caused by the ups and downs in the overall economy, a phenomenon known as the business cycle. When the economy enters into a recession or contractionary phase, overall demand decreases, and businesses lay off workers as a result leading to an increase in unemployment. This is known as cyclical unemployment.

On the other hand, when the economy is in an expansionary phase, businesses are typically doing well and unemployment levels decrease as businesses hire more workers to meet the increased demand. Therefore, cyclical unemployment is directly related to the health of an economy.

Wholemark is an Internet order business that sells one popular New Year greeting card once a year. The cost of the paper on which the card is printed is $0.40 per card, and the cost of printing is $0.10 per card. The company receives $3.75 per card sold. Since the cards have the current year printed on them, unsold cards have no salvage value. Their customers are from the four areas: Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Hollywood, and Pasadena. Based on past data, the number of customers from each of the four regions is normally distributed with mean 2,300 and standard deviation 200. (Assume these four are independent.)What is the optimal production quantity for the card?

Answers

Answer:

≈ 9644 quantity of card

Explanation:

given data:

n = 4 regions/areas

mean demand = 2300

standard deviation = 200

cost of card (c) = $0.5

selling price (p) = $3.75

salvage value of card ( v ) = $ 0

The optimal production quantity for the card can be calculated using this formula below

= u + z (0.8667  ) * б

= 9200  +  1.110926 * 400

≈ 9644 quantity of card

First we have to find u

u = n * mean demand

 = 4 * 2300 = 9200

next we find the value of Z

Z = ( (p-c)/(p-v) )

   = ( 3.75 - 0.5 ) / 3.75   = 0.8667

Z( 0.8667 ) = 1.110926 ( using  excel formula : NORMSINV (0.8667 )

next we find б

б = 200√(n) = 400

The following data relate to direct materials costs for February: Materials cost per yard: standard, $1.97; actual, $2.05 Yards per unit: standard, 4.67 yards; actual, 5.08 yards Units of production: 9,300 The direct materials quantity variance is a.$7,816.65 favorable b.$7,511.61 favorable c.$7,816.65 unfavorable d.$7,511.61 unfavorable

Answers

Answer:

correct option is d.$7,511.61 unfavorable

Explanation:

given data

standard material cost = $1.97  per yard

Actual material cost = $2.05 per yard

Standard yards  = 4.67 per unit

Actual yards = 5.08 per unit

Units of production = 9300

solution

we get here Direct material quantity variance that is express as

Direct material quantity variance = (Standard quantity - actual quantity) × Standard rate    .....................1

put here value and we will get

Direct material quantity variance  = (9300 ×  4.67 - 9300 × 5.08) × 1.97

Direct material quantity variance  = −7511.61

so correct option is d.$7,511.61 unfavorable

5) If in the market for apples the supply has decreased, then A) the supply curve for apples has shifted to the right. B) there has been a movement upwards along the supply curve for apples. C) the supply curve for apples has shifted to the left. D) there has been a movement downwards along the supply curve for apples.

Answers

Answer:

The correct answer is letter "C": the supply curve for apples has shifted to the left.

Explanation:

The supply curve plots in a graph the relationship between the price and quantity supplied of a good or service. According to the supply law, that relationship is directly proportional meaning if the price rises the quantity demanded increases -the supply curve moves to the right- but if the prices fall the quantity demanded drops -the supply curve moves to the left.

R. C. Barker makes purchasing decisions for his company. One product that he buys costs $50 per unit when the order quantity is less than 500. When the quantity ordered is 500 or more, the price per unit drops to $48. The ordering cost is $30 per order and the annual demand is 7,500 units. The holding cost is 10 percent of the purchase cost. If R. C. wishes to minimize his total annual inventory costs, he must evaluate the total cost for two possible order quantities. What are these two possible quantities?a. 300
b. 306
c. 500
d. 200
e. None of the above

Answers

Answer:

a. 300

d. 200

Explanation:

EOQ = √((2 * Annual demand * ordering cost) / holding cost ) \n

2 * 7500 * 30 / 0.5

EOQ = 948 units

When price is $48 per unit

EOQ = 968 units

Total cost  = Holding cost + ordering cost + purchase cost

When the order is for 500 price is $48

Total cost = $2,400 + $30 + $24,000 = $26,430

When the order is for 300 price is $50

Total cost = $1,500 + $30 + $15,000 = $16,530

When the order is for 306 price is $50

Total cost = $1,530 + $30 + $15,300 = $16,860

When the order is for 200 price is $50

Total cost = $1,000 + $30 + $10,000 = $11,030

The best two possible order quantities are 200 and 300 which results in minimum total cost.

A bailment is different from a gift because:___. a. a gift requires consideration, but a bailment does not.
b. a gift is always a contract, but a bailment is generally not a contract.
c. a gift requires delivery, but a bailment does not.
d. in a bailment, only possession of the property is transferred to the bailee, whereas with a gift, both possession and ownership must pass to the donee.

Answers

Answer: d. in a bailment, only possession of the property is transferred to the bailee, whereas with a gift, both possession and ownership must pass to the donee.

Explanation:

When you give a person a gift, you are giving the person both ownership of that gift and the possession as well. For instance, if you give a person a car as a gift, that person now owns the car and will use it as they please.

With a bailment, there is no transfer of ownership. The bailor is simply giving the bailee possession of the property in question which means that after the bailee is done with the property, they have to return it back to the bailor.
