Better still, I got to know about the importance of applying these moral values into our daily lives. The first moral value is to cooperate with other people. The strategies and solutions of the questions in this project work were discussed among me and a group of friends. This makes things easier and saved a lot of time. The management of time is also important to complete this project work. Other than this assignment, I have homework, extra co curricular activities and tuition classes to attend. Thus a good management of time is essential for me to complete this given task and not to disrupt my daily activities. Perseverance has taught me to be steady and persistent in doing something. In spite of many difficulties I faced throughout the whole procedure I learned that giving up is just not right solution. Obstacles and discouragement should be endured the course of action should be held on with unyielding determination to see obtain sweet fruit of success. I had also learned to appreciate the beauty of mathematics. Waxing eloquently on the basic importance of Mathematics in human life, Roger Bacon (1214-1294), an English Franciscan friar, philosopher,......

...function? If yes, of what type of function is it an example? Why might you identify it with that type of function? Yes, a compound interest formula used to calculate a car loan is an example of a function. The compound interest formula is A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt) and would be considered an exponential function because P, r, and n are all fixed variables/ constants and t appears as the exponent which would be the changing variable. The function would then be written as A(t)= P(1 + r/n) ^ (nt) A= accumulated amount, t = the number of years, P = the beginning principal, r = the annual interest rate and n = the number of compounding periods per year. Develop a word problem that contains 3 scenarios for a company. Use 2 of the 3 scenarios to form 6 compositions. Based on your findings, make a proposal that is best for your company. A car insurance company is planning to buy a television to put inside their waiting room to occupy their clients. They go to an electronic store and find they are running a sale on plasma TV’s. They have a 42” on sale for $450.00 and a 42” bundle package for $550.00. The bundle package includes a 1 year warranty and a wall mount which is normally a $150 value. The electronic store is also running special promotional offers.

...Simple Interest Unit 4: Instructor Graded Assignment In these questions, you will need to use the date that unit 4 starts for your class. List the date that Unit 4 started for your class: * Unit 4 start date: May 7, 2014 Question 1 1. You decide to take out a simple interest loan for $5000, at 7% yearly interest on the date that unit 4 starts for you. If you repay the loan on December 31st (at the end of the current year)... a) How much do you pay total when you pay off the loan? R= 7% =0.07 T= 238/365 = 0.65 A= P (1 + rt) A = 5,000 (1 + (0.07 X 0.65) ) A= 5,000 X 1.0455 A= $5,227.50 b) How much interest do you pay? Amount Accured – Principal = Interest 5,227.50 – 5,000 = $227.50 or I = PRT I = 5,000 X 0.07 X 0.65 I = $227.50 Question 2 2. You decide to take out a $20,000 simple interest loan at 4%, on the date unit 4 started for you. a) In 45 days you decide to pay off $8000 of the loan. What is your new principal? Explain how you got the answer. I = PRT I = 20,000 X 0.04 X (45/365) I = 20,000 X 0.00493 I = $98.63 Payment = Principal – Interest $ 7,901.37 = 8,000 – 98.63 New Balance = Previous Balance – Principal payment $12, 098.63 = 20,000 – 7,901.37 To get the new principal, I need to go get the interest and the payment to get the new balance. b) 30 days after the first payment, you pay another $6000.

...Chapter 4 Extra Credit Questions: 1. Direct labor is a valid basis for allocating overhead for job order costing. 2. In recent industrial history advances in computerized systems, technology innovation, global competition, and automation has changed manufacturing environments. That is what reduced the usefulness of direct labor as the primary basis for allocating overhead to products. 3. Machine hours are frequently more relevant than direct labor hours. 4. Overhead allocation to high volume products is responsible for less overhead cost per period, where overhead allocation to low volume products under a traditional costing system is responsible for more overhead cost per unit than the high-volume. 5. Activity based costing (ABC) is an overhead cost allocation system that allocates overhead to multiple activity pools and assigns the activity cost pool to products or services. Traditional product costing is determined through overhead cost. 6. Activity-Based Overhead Rates = Overhead/ Direct Labor Hours 7. The steps involved in developing an activity based costing system are identify and classify the activities, identify the cost driver, compute the activity based overhead rate, and assign overhead costs to production. 8. A value-added/non-value added flowchart is based on an analysis of all the activities preformed to manufacture a product. The flow chart will record each activity done and the time correlating to the activity. 9. Activity...

...Question 4 The first problem to be dealt with is if the investment is necessary or not, as there are advantages and disadvantages to the choice. One disadvantage is that there is a risk in the stability of the POS terminal after the OS upgrade, for the reason that the POS application runs stable on the DOS-system at the time. But, after upgrading the OS and porting the POS application, there is a risk of reducing the stability of the POS application due to bugs in the application (after porting). At the same time the investment costs could be avoided if choosing to remain at the old DOS system. One advantage of upgrading the OS is the fact that the PDAs can become interconnected with other stores or the headquarters. This can increase efficiency as employees will be able to look at the inventory of other stores and search for the products which are sold-out at their own store for instance. Another advantage is that the MS DOS system became obsolete and unsupported as of 2003, which means that the POS terminal will not be compatible with the POS software, and in such manner a change in the OS is inevitable. Therefore, we are in favour of investing in a new OS, and the next question is which OS is the best option. When looking in a short-term view, Linux comes out as the best option, as of €0 license cost and only an annual maintenance fee to be paid. As Zara intends to invest in the OS for long-term period, then UNIX is the best choice for a new OS, in the......

...Week 1 DQ 1 Response 1) Given the enumeration methods; sum rule, product rule, permutations, combinations along with enumeration methods for indistinguishable objects, how can we devise a strategy to solve problems requiring these methods? A basic concept in the branch of the theory of algorithms called enumeration theory, which investigates general properties of classes of objects numbered by arbitrary constructive objects (cf. Constructive object). Most often, natural numbers appear in the role of the constructive objects that serve as numbers of the elements of the classes in question ("Enumeration", 2013). The Sum/Difference Rules refer to the derivative of the sum of two functions is the sum of the derivatives of the two functions ("Basic Derivative Rules", 2013). The product rule is one of several rules used to find the derivative of a function. Specifically, it is used to find the derivative of the product of two functions. It is also called Leibnitz's Law, and it states that for two functions f and g their derivative (in Leibnitz notation, ). The derivative of f times g is not equal to the derivative of f times the derivative of g: .The product rule can be used with multiple functions and is used to derive the power rule. The product rule can also be applied to dot products and cross products of vector functions. The Leibnitz Identity, a generalization of the product rule, can be applied to find higher-order derivatives ("Definition Of Product Rule", 2013). A......

...short-run cost. I would also like to add that in the short-run, a firm will have fixed capital (it takes time to increase size of factories). In the short-run, the firm can vary the quantity of labor. However, in the short term, a firm is likely to experience diminishing marginal returns. This means as firms employ more workers, there will come a point where extra workers have a declining marginal product. For some producers, the short-run lasts a few days. For others, the short-run can last for decades. Jennifer, Good post and I agree with you. An explicit cost is a business expense that is predictable in occurrence and amount. Company salary and wage expenses, mortgage or rental payments and utilities are among common company explicit costs. Because of their predictability, explicit costs are easier to budget for and account for in financial recordkeeping. Companies use explicit costs in budget preparation. They total the projected amounts of explicit costs based on monthly payments or average costs for an item over time. This provides a basis for understanding the break-even point at which revenue covers explicit costs. A high number of less predictable costs makes budgeting more difficult and leads to greater fluctuation in business income. These costs are never hidden, one has to pay separately.

...ACCOUNTING 5336 Ch4 – Reading Questions – Spring 2012 Recognizing Revenues in Governmental Funds Ch 4a (pp 130-151) 1. The current model for governmental reporting requires two sets of financial statements. What are they? What key reporting objective does each meet? What basis of accounting does each use? (p131) Government-wide statements: full accrual and consolidate all funds. Indicating the extent to which the entity achieved interperiod equity (Demonstrates whether the entity’s current-year revenues were sufficient to pay for the current year’s services.) Fund statements: governmental funds on modified accrual basis. Demonstrating whether the entity obtained and used its resources in accordance with its legally adopted budget. 2. Why didn’t GASB just require governments to use their budgetary basis for financial reporting? (p132) Because retaining the modified accrual basis ensures that all governments report on the same basis and thereby facilitates comparisons among entities. Comparisons would have been difficult if each reported on its own particular budget basis. 3. Current financial resources (the measurement focus used with modified accrual) can be described as “expendable financial resources”. What does this mean? (132-3) This is cash and other items that can be expected to be transformed into cash in the normal course of operations (less current liabilities). Other items include investments and receivables......
