Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions

1. Capital budgeting (deciding on whether to expand a manufacturing plant), capital structure (deciding whether to issue new equity and use the proceeds to retire outstanding debt), and working capital management (modifying the firm’s credit collection policy with its customers).

2. Disadvantages: unlimited liability, limited life, difficulty in transferring ownership, hard to raise capital funds. Some advantages: simpler, less regulation, the owners are also the managers, sometimes personal tax rates are better than corporate tax rates.

3. The primary disadvantage of the corporate form is the double taxation to shareholders of distributed earnings and dividends. Some advantages include: limited liability, ease of transferability, ability to raise capital, and unlimited life.

4. The treasurer’s office and the controller’s office are the two primary organizational groups that report directly to the chief financial officer. The controller’s office handles cost and financial accounting, tax management, and management information systems. The treasurer’s office is responsible for cash and credit management, capital budgeting, and financial planning. Therefore, the study of corporate finance is concentrated within the functions of the treasurer’s office.

5. To maximize the current market value (share price) of the equity of the firm (whether it’s publicly traded or not).

6. In the corporate form of ownership, the shareholders are the owners of the firm. The shareholders elect the directors of the corporation, who in turn appoint the firm’s management. This separation of ownership from control in the corporate form of organization is what causes agency problems to exist. Management may act in its own or someone else’s best interests, rather than those of the shareholders. If such events occur,…...

... money fine-tuning their recruitment strategy or to pay extra attention to retaining the talent they already have. Recruiting new staff is expensive, stressful and time-consuming. Once the organization has a good staff, please make sure they will stay. The rewards given to employees must be meaningful in order to impact their perception of the organization and therefore have a marked influence on its retention efforts. In addition, to performing exit interviews is to learn why employees are leaving, consider asking longer-tenured employees why they stay. However, Samad can ask questions such as: Why did you come to work here? Why have you stayed with the company? What would make you leave? And what are your nonnegotiable issues regarding your job? What about your past managers? What would you change or improve? Then, use that information to strengthen his employee-retention strategies. Lastly, Samad must have a clear picture of the relationship between cognitive function and operational management needs. He needs to review existing practices toward ensuring that options and solutions improve the design and development. 3. Define career and explain Aminah’s personality and her potential career stages.

Rudin W Solution Manual of Principles of Mathematical Analysis

...MATH 413 [513] (PHILLIPS) SOLUTIONS TO HOMEWORK 1 Generally, a “solution” is something that would be acceptable if turned in in the form presented here, although the solutions given are often close to minimal in this respect. A “solution (sketch)” is too sketchy to be considered a complete solution if turned in; varying amounts of detail would need to be filled in. Problem 1.1: If r ∈ Q \ {0} and x ∈ R \ Q, prove that r + x, rx ∈ Q. Solution: We prove this by contradiction. Let r ∈ Q\{0}, and suppose that r +x ∈ Q. Then, using the field properties of both R and Q, we have x = (r + x) − r ∈ Q. Thus x ∈ Q implies r + x ∈ Q. Similarly, if rx ∈ Q, then x = (rx)/r ∈ Q. (Here, in addition to the field properties of R and Q, we use r = 0.) Thus x ∈ Q implies rx ∈ Q. Problem 1.2: Prove that there is no x ∈ Q such that x2 = 12. Solution: We prove this by contradiction. Suppose there is x ∈ Q such that x2 = 12. Write x = m in lowest terms. Then x2 = 12 implies that m2 = 12n2 . n Since 3 divides 12n2 , it follows that 3 divides m2 . Since 3 is prime (and by unique factorization in Z), it follows that 3 divides m. Therefore 32 divides m2 = 12n2 . Since 32 does not divide 12, using again unique factorization in Z and the fact that 3 is prime, it follows that 3 divides n. We have proved that 3 divides both m and n, contradicting the assumption that the fraction m is in lowest terms. n Alternate solution (Sketch): If x ∈ Q satisfies x2 = 12, then x is in Q and satisfies 2 x 2 = 3. Now prove...

Once finished inputting a title, Click Next. In the Component Name box enter the two components for this problem: isobutane and isobutylene (isobutene). Note that the data bank doesn’t recognize the name isobutene, hence isobutylene is entered because it is the same compound and it is in the data bank. Enter these names in the component name column. The names in the component ID column are aliases. Click Next. At this screen, enter in NRTL for the "base method” as we have done before in other simulations.

...CHAPTER 19 RELEVANT COSTS FOR DECISION MAKING I. Questions 1. Quantitative factors are those which may more easily be reduced in terms of pesos such as projected costs of materials, labor and overhead. Qualitative factors are those whose measurement in pesos is difficult and imprecise; yet a qualitative factor may be easily given more weight than the measurable cost savings. It can be seen that the accountant’s role in making decisions deals with the quantitative factors. 2. Relevant costs are expected future costs that will differ between alternatives. In view of the definition of relevant costs, historical costs are always irrelevant because they are not future costs. They may be helpful in predicting relevant costs but they are always irrelevant costs per se. 3. The differential costs in any given situation is commonly defined as the change in total cost under each alternative. It is not relevant cost, but it is the algebraic difference between the relevant costs for the alternatives under consideration. 4.
