Mr. pines thought ms. smith was the ideal employee. smith was an impressive person and attended all social functions of the company. however, during the past year she had trouble meeting sales quotas. nevertheless, on her performance appraisal, pines rated smith as one of the top salespeople. on hearing this, other salespeople complained that pines must guard against ____ in rating smith.

The answer in the space provided is that Pines must guard against overemphasizing issues in which are not completely unjust for he only has a handful of facts of picking his ideal employee when he does not know the rest of the performance and that he should not under emphasize others for it is not fair for those people who deserves to have the title and the only reason that they were degraded because of his judgments.

A company is setting its direct materials and direct labor standards for its leading product. Direct material costs from the supplier areâ€‹ \$7 per squareâ€‹ foot, net of purchase discount.â€‹ Freight-in amounts toâ€‹ \$0.10 per square foot. Basic wages of the assembly line personnel areâ€‹ \$19 per hour. Payroll taxes are approximatelyâ€‹ 25% of wages. How much is the direct labor cost standard perâ€‹ hour

The formula for calculating the direct labor standard is:

Direct labor standard = Basic wages + Payroll tax

or

Direct labor standard = Basic wages + 25% of Basic wages

Substituting the given values into the equation:

Direct labor standard = \$19 + 0.25 * \$19

Direct labor standard = \$23.75

For jacobs company, the predetermined overhead rate is 70% of direct labor cost. during the month, \$600,000 of factory labor costs are incurred of which \$140,000 is indirect labor. actual overhead incurred was \$320,000. the amount of overhead debited to work in process inventory should be:

First find the amount of direct labor cost by subtracting the amount of indirect labor cost from the amount of factory labor cost
Direct labor cost is
600,000−140,000=460,000

The amount of overhead debited to work in process inventory should be
460,000×0.7=322,000

Oscar Corporation is planning to construct an elliptical gate at its headquarters. The width of the ellipse will be 5 feet across and its maximum height along the center will be 3 feet. The company wants to place two bright spots at the foci of the ellipse. How far from the center of the ellipse will the spots be located?

Draw the elliptical gate and show the foci, the width, and height as in the figure below.
Note that
a = 5 ft, the width
b = 3 ft, the height

The center is at (0,0).
The foci are at (c, 0) and at (-c, 0).

The foci are related to a and b by
c² = a² – b²
= 5² – 3² = 16
c = +4 or -4

The foci are located 4 ft horizontally from the center of the ellipse.

A manufacturing company hired 30 new employees. This hiring increased the company’s total workforce by 5%. How many employees now work at this company?

We can solve
this problem by using the formula:

1 +
fractional increase = (original employees + new employees) / original employees

Lets say,

x = original
employees

Therefore
substituting the known values:

1 + 0.05 = (x
+ 30) / x

1.05 x = x +
30

0.05 x = 30

x = 600

Therefore
the number of employees working now is:

x +  30

= 630

A fireworks company has two types of rockets called Zinger 1 and Zinger 2. The polynomial -16t2 + 150t gives the height in feet of Zinger 1 at t seconds after launch. The polynomial -16t2 + 165t gives the height of Zinger 2 at t seconds after launch. If the rockets are launched at the same time and both explode 6 seconds after launch, how much higher is Zinger 2 than Zinger 1 when they explode?

Lisa wants to buy a phone card for \$5. Company X charges \$0.37 for the first minute and \$0.08 for each additional minute. Company Y charges \$0.52 for the first minute and \$0.14 for each additional minute. If Lisa makes just one call, which phone company gives her more minutes for \$5? How many more minutes? a. Company Y; about 29 minutes c. Company X; about 26 minutes b. Company X; about 29 minutes d. Company Y; about 26 minutes

Option b

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that Lisa wants to buy a phone card for \$5.

Company X charges \$0.37 for the first minute and \$0.08 for each additional minute.

ie. for t minutes charges are

Company Y charges \$0.52 for the first minute and \$0.14 for each additional minute.

for t minutes company Y charges

If 5 dollar is spent, then for company A

t = minutes

For company B, for same 5 dollars,

t =

Company x gives about 26 minutes more

Option b

Photo necessities produces camera cases. they have found that the cost c(x) of making x camera cases is a quadratic function in terms of x. a company discover that it cost 27 dollars to produce 2 camera cases, 105 dollars to produce 4 camera cases, and 675 dollars to produce 10 camera cases. find the total cost of producing 5 camera cases

We will use
c(x)=ax²+bx+c
sub the points given

when x=2, c(x)=27
27=a(2)²+b(2)+c or
27=4a+2b+c

when x=4, c(x)=105
105=a(4)²+b(4)+c
105=16a+4b+c

when x=10, c(x)=675
675=a(10)²+b(10)+c
675=100a+10b+c

so we gots
27=4a+2b+c
105=16a+4b+c
675=100a+10b+c

eliminate c’s from everybody
multiply first equation by -1 and add to 2nd and 3rd equation
the resulting 2nd and 3rd equations are shown below
78=12a+2b
648=96a+8b
multiply top equation by -4 and add to bottom

-312=-48a-8b
648=96a+8b +
336=48a+0b

336=48a
divide both sides by 48
7=a
sub back

78=12a+2b
78=12(7)+2b
78=84+2b
-6=2b
-3=b
sub back

27=4a+2b+c
27=4(7)+2(-3)+c
27=28-6+c
27=22+c
5=c

c(x)=7x²-3x+5 is da equation
to produce 5 we do
c(5)=7(5)²-3(5)+5
c(5)=7(25)-15+5
c(5)=175-10
c(5)=165

costs \$165 to make 5 camera cases

A fruit company delivers its fruit in two types of boxes: large and small. A delivery of 3 large boxes and 5 small boxes has a total weight of 135 kilograms. A delivery of 9 large boxes and 7 small boxes has a total weight of 279 kilograms. How much does each type of box weigh? Weightofeachlargebox:kilogram(s) ____ Weightofeachsmallbox:kilogram(s)_____

A delivery of 3 large boxes and 5 small boxes has a total weight of 135 kilograms.
3l + 5s = 135A delivery of 9 large boxes and 7 small boxes has a total weight of 279 kilograms
9l + 7s = 279

Another of the same type of thing, two variables, two equations, enough info to suss out the details.  In this type of problem check the total against one of the factors to see if there’s an even division, that’s usually the avenue that leaves the prettiest whole numbers.  Here you could solve the first one for s, ending up with 135/5 and 3/5

3l + 5s = 135
5s = 135-3l
s=135/5-3/5l
s=27-0.6l

Sub that s into the other equation:

9l + 7s = 279
9l + 7(27-0.6l) = 279
9l + 189-4.2l = 279
4.8l+189=279
4.8l = 90
l = 18.75

Toss that into one of the equations and solve for exact s:
9l + 7s = 279
9(18.75) + 7s = 279
s=15.75

Hope it helps to learn it, you have many avenues to approach it, solving either equation for either variable to begin with.  If your numbers get ugly or you’re getting frustrated sometimes helps to start over, maybe start with the other equation or a different variable, maybe you’ll come across the method they designed the problem with that gives “pretty” numbers, but if you keep going even with irrational numbers like 8.6666666666666666666666, you’ll get the right answer no matter which place you start.

A party rental company has chairs and tables for rent. The total cost to rent 4 chairs and 8 tables is \$89 . The total cost to rent 2 chairs and 3 tables is \$34 . What is the cost to rent each chair and each table? Costtorenteachchair:\$ Costtorenteachtable:\$ i might jsut ask this and leave…unless theres another..

Let C = cost to rent each chairLet T = cost to rent each table 4C + 8T = 732C + 3T = 28 Multiply the 2nd equation by (-2) and then add the equations together   4C + 8T = 73-4C – 6T = -56 2T = 17T = 17/2 = 8.5 Plug this in to the 1st equation to solve for C 4C + 8(17/2) = 734C + 68 = 734C = 5C = 5/4 = 1.25 So the cost to rent each chair is \$1.25 and the cost to rent each table is \$8.50

(1) what is your sisters total cost under each of the two plans

Plan A: Post paid plan

Total cost A = \$80 per month

Plan B: Pre paid plan

Total cost B = \$0.20 per
minute * 1,700 minutes + \$0.10 per text message * 1,600 texts

Total cost B = \$340 + \$160

Total cost B = \$500 per month
