## Which one of the following would you be most comfortable doing? introducing yourself to a stranger calling a friend to ask a favor standing to speak at a meeting with a large audience making a complaint to an executive or politician returning a call to an angry customer very comfortable doing any of these would not be comfortable doing any of these has to be 1 question answered applying for a job

The most comfortable thing that I would do among the choices is
introducing myself to a stranger

There’s no harm in approaching someone and telling them your name and asking for theirs. This is much easier when what you have in mind is purely introducing yourself and asking for other person’s name. After that, you can choose to do whatever you want, either start a conversation with a topic or end it at just knowing each other’s names.

The other choices involve some form of conflict or negative emotions which is why they’re harder to do.

## Each employee or customer who uses a computer in a large business is which kind of user?

Economic profit is calculated as:

Economic profit = Total Revenues – Total Cost

this case, the explicit cost is \$8,000 while the implicit cost is \$64,000.
Explicit cost is a direct payment made to run the business while implicit cost
is the opportunity as accountant that is lost. Therefore,

Economic profit = \$150,000 – (\$8,000 + \$64,000)

Economic profit = \$78,000

## Enzo read this passage from “The Smithville Gazette: Neighborhood Thief Strikes Again.” Another episode in the recent spate of neighborhood thefts occurred on Saturday at Ferguson’s department store. Several pieces of jewelry were taken at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon. Mrs. Jane Dickson, the employee working the jewelry counter reported that she did not initially see the theft, but realized shortly before 1 p.m. that several necklaces were missing from inside the jewelry case, which she had accidentally left unlocked while moving away to help another customer. Instead of taking notes on the central idea, Enzo copied the passage down exactly. What is the best way to revise the passage into notes that reveal the central idea? a) Saturday @ 12:30 p.m., Ferguson’s, Mrs. Jane Dickson, jewelry, necklaces b) robbery @ Ferguson’s jewelry on Sat.—necklaces stolen c) On Saturday at Ferguson’s, there was a robbery and some jewelry was stolen. d) Mrs. Jane Dickson says there was a jewelry robbery.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

Method 1: The owner asked every third customer to rate all the pizza toppings in order of preference. Method 2: The owner gave all customers a toll-free telephone number and asked them to phone in their topping preferences. Method 3: The owner asked the preferences of every other teenager who entered the pizzeria. Method 4: The owner reviewed the pizzeria’s complaint cards and assessed all complaints related to pizza toppings. Which method is most likely to give a valid generalization

## A database into which employees manually input customer names and addresses is riddled with errors and you have been charged with rectifying the situation. in considering the organizational dimensions of this problem, you should consider:

Hey there!

Let’s assume that this question is referring to every digital calendar ever made. As in, even those made on devices without internet connectivity or any other fancy features that we utilize with many digital calendars today.

If a planning device that came with a digital calendar didn’t have internet connectivity, it wouldn’t be able to be connected to the cloud. Back when these devices were around, it wasn’t even plausible to store things like calendar events and contacts in what we know as the “cloud”. Also, these devices probably had to be hardwired to a computer and new software had to be downloaded to them, so the updates weren’t automatic. Archaic, right?

Also, consider the fact that even reputable websites/companies such as Google with Google Calendars or Apple with iCalendar will never go without their malfunctions or threats. Sometimes, these websites can be hacked and the data that they contain can be compromised, especially if they’re stored on the cloud. Also, even though it’s not realistic, Google or Apple could one day decide to completely get rid of their calendar programs altogether. So, this means that digital calendars are definitely able to be destroyed or lost.

That just leaves “They can be used anywhere”. This is true, even with those archaic devices specifically used for scheduling events and such. Nowadays, you have your phone and possibly a laptop on you at all times, which will likely have a calendar on it as a stock application. So, I think this is your answer.

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = \$1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = \$47

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = \$234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$8.4

Direct labor per unit = \$131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = \$240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = \$8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = \$113,220 / 22,200
units sold = \$5.1

TE = \$26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = \$47 – \$26.8

CM = \$20.2 per unit

## The director of a customer service center wants to estimate the mean number of customer calls the center handles each day, so he randomly samples 26 different days and records the number of calls. the sample yields a mean of 258.4 calls with a standard deviation of 32.7 calls per day. the 95% confidence interval for the mean number of calls per day has an upper bound of ________. (round your answer to 1 decimal place.)

First we calculate for the total number of possibilities
(permutation) to select 4 disks from the container:

Total number of possibilities = 10 * 9 * 8 * 7

Total number of possibilities = 5040

Now let us find the 4 disks that will result in a range of 7.

Range = highest number – lowest number

The pair of highest and lowest number that will result in
range of 7 is: (1 & 8), (2 & 9), (3 & 10)

As a basis of calculation, let us use the pair 1 & 8.

There are four possible ways to select 1 and three for 8.

Arrangements of maximum and minimum pair = 4 * 3

Arrangements of maximum and minimum pair=12

Now we need to calculate for the remaining 2 disk. There
are 6 numbers between 1 & 8. The total possibilities for selecting 2 disk
from the remaining 6 is:

Possibilities of selecting 2 disk from remaining 6 = 6 *
5

Possibilities of selecting 2 disk from remaining 6 = 30

Therefore, the total possibility to get a range of 7 from
a pair of 1 & 8 is:

Total possibility for a pair = 12 * 30

Total possibility for a pair = 360

Since there are a total of three pairs (1 & 8), (2
& 9), (3 & 10):

Total possibilities of the 3 pairs = 360 * 3

Total possibilities of the 3 pairs = 1080

Therefore:

Probability = Total possibilities of the 3 pairs / Total
number of possibilities

Probability
= 1080 / 5040 = 3 / 14                      (FINAL

We know that Profit = Earnings  – Cost

Case 1: Sold as is

Profit = (300 fans* \$20/fan) – (300 fans*
\$55/fan)

Profit = – \$10, 500 (deficit)

Case 2: Processed further then sell

Profit = (300 fans* \$90/fan) – [(300 fans*
\$55/fan)
+ (300 fans* \$40/fan)]

Profit = – \$1, 500 (deficit)

Since Case 2 has lower deficit, then it is better to
process the fans further then sell to normal selling price.

## A frozen dinner at a grocery store is purchased for \$2.20 wholesale and is marked up by 40 percent. A customer wants to buy four frozen dinners. How much will the customer pay, including paying 9 percent sales tax? Round your answer to the nearest cent.

The first step is to find the area of the bulletin board–this will let you know how much space you have to cover.

The problem tells you the bulletin board has sides that are 4 and 3 feet, making this a rectangle. The formula for finding the area of a rectangle is:

A = lw therefore, multiply 4×3 to find your area, which is 12 ft (it’s important to note what measurement you’re using).

The index cards are 4×6 inches, so use the same formula to find the area of an individual index card.

4×6=24, so one index card takes up 24 inches of space.

To find out how many you can get on the board, you will divide the space of one index card by the space of the board. HOWEVER, the board is currently measured in feet, and our cards are measured in inches. We have to convert the board’s area into inches.

12 inches = 1 foot. We have 12 ft of board. So multiply 12×12 to get the area of the board in inches.

12×12=144 < there is 144 inches of open space on the bulletin board.
Now jump back to the area of one index card: 24. Now we must divide 144 by 24 to see how many card will fit.

144/24=6 < this is the number of cards that can fit on the bulletin board.

Answer: 6 cards are needed to cover the board.

The government is only in deciding when the Democrats are in power. I need help, I know that D is NOT right. I’m not sure what the Customer Price Index, but it seems as if that isn’t the answer either. I’m leaning towards A or B.

Today, we celebrate the 224th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution (September 17 falls out over the weekend this year).  On this day, it is imperative that we reflect on the importance of our constitution and celebrate the roots of our founding.  As our nation comes under attack from the forces of tyranny within, we must reaffirm our commitment to the ideals of our founders and founding documents.

Most people often mistakenly refer to our nation as the greatest democracy on earth.  They are mistaken because we are not an absolute democracy; we are a constitutional republic.  That is what makes our nation great, for if we were merely a democracy, we would be anything but great.  And to the extent that we no longer function as a constitutional republic, that greatness is rapidly ebbing away.

## A tent originally costs \$450, but it is on sale for 22% off. If a customer buying the tent has a coupon for \$20.00 off of any purchase, what will her final price be on the tent?

Step-by-step explanation: We are given five options out of which we are to select all those which can be modelled by exponential functions.

We can see that the options (A) and (D) cannot be modelled by exponential functions, because the rate of increasing or decreasing are not calculating compoundly.

But, in options (B), (C) and (E), the rate is increasing or decreasing each year.So, these three can be modelled by exponential functions.

In fact, the options (B) and (E) will show exponential growth because the number is increasing and option (C) will show exponential decay as the number is decreasing.

Thus, (B), (C) and (E) are the correct options.
