The following graph shows the demand curve for a group of consumers in the U.S. market (blue line) for Blu-ray players. The market price of a Blu-ray player is shown by the black horizontal line at $150. Each rectangle you can place on the following graph corresponds to a particular buyer in this market: orange (square symbols) for Antonio, green (triangle symbols) for Caroline, purple (diamond symbols) for Dmitri, tan (dash symbols) for Frances, and blue (circle symbols) for Jake. Use the rectangles to shade the areas representing consumer surplus for each person who is willing and able to purchase a Blu-ray player at a market price of $150. (Note: If a person will not purchase a Blu-ray player at the market price, indicate this by leaving his or her rectangle in its original position on the palette.

On December 15, 1791, the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution) were ratified by the states.

The Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution to address fears raised by the Anti-Federalists during the ratification of the Constitution that the Constitution did not provide sufficient protection against abuses of power by the federal government. 

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, originally did not think a Bill of Rights was necessary. He thought the Constitution gave no power to the federal government that would allow for a violation of the rights of the people.

Madison later changed his position, persuaded mainly by Thomas Jefferson, and, with the help of others, drafted twenty amendments that were proposed to the first United States Congress in 1789.

Twelve of the proposed amendments were accepted by Congress and were then sent to the states for ratification. Only ten were ratified.

These ten amendments list our basic rights and place limits on the federal government. They include the freedoms of speech and religion, the right to bear arms, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and an assurance that the powers not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution are reserved to the states and the people. Many of these provisions were based upon similar protections provided by state constitutions that limited the power of state and local government authorities.

Of the remaining amendments that were not ratified in 1791, one was later adopted in 1992 as the twenty-seventh amendment to the Constitution. That amendment prevents changes in the compensation for senators and representatives until after a subsequent election of representatives. The other proposed amendment has never been adopted.

The Bill of Rights illustrates that our Founders understood that for personal freedoms to be broad, the power of the federal government must be limited.

Our nation, however, has moved away from its founding principles, especially during recent decades. Our ever-growing federal government is intervening into more and more aspects of our lives, especially through bureaucratic regulations, and is reducing our personal freedoms in the process.

Government at all levels is doing more and more things that were once left to private individuals and groups, and the federal government is doing more and more things that were once the province of state and local governments, where greater accountability to the public is often possible.

One need only look at the HHS mandate—forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs, under pain of penalty, by paying for and providing abortion pill insurance coverage—to see the harm caused by an overreaching government.

The preservation of our liberties is a daily battle, something our Founders understood. The process of scaling back the size and role of government and returning limits to it is a long one. But, since the federal government is supposed to be our servant and not our master, no one should doubt the importance of this endeavor.

Explain why the marginal revenue curve facing a competitive firm differs from the marginal revenue curve facing a monopolist. unlike for perfectly competitive? firms, whose marginal revenue curves are the same as their individual demand? curves, a? monopolist’s marginal revenue curve differs from its demand curve because

[ad_1]

The correct answer to this question is that:

In a monopoly, “the monopolist
must lower the price on all units to sell one more unit of output”.

This means that in a monopoly market,
if we increase the amount of output without lowering the price, the marginal
revenue decreases. Therefore marginal revenue is indirectly proportional to
number of outputs.

In a perfect competition however, the
marginal revenue is constant to any amount of output.

What did louis XIV demand of his courtiers

Question: What happens as connection and trade between countries increases? Check all that apply.

Options:  

There is more demand for natural resources.

• There will probably be more pollution from manufacturing.

• Natural resources are transported worldwide.

• With higher demand, all natural resources will be depleted.

• Finished products are transported worldwide.

Answer: The correct answers are: There will probably be more pollution from manufacturing and Finished products are transported worldwide.

Explanation: One concern about trade’s role in the environment is its need for transportation services. As a result of international trade, finished products are transported worldwide. The international shipping industry is responsible for the carriage of around 90% of world trade. Shipping is the life of the global economy and without it, intercontinental trade and the import/export of affordable food and manufactured goods wouldn’t be possible. There are many ways to trade. It can be by land, road, rail, pipelines, air or sea. But not everything about trade is positive. As we know, international trade involves countries specializing in the manufacturing and exporting of goods in which they exchange and receive through transportations. This has always been a negative aspect of international trade due to the fear that its expansion is likely to lead to increased use of transportation, which leads to air pollution, harming the environment. If connection and trade occurs between countries, finished products are transported worldwide but there will probably be more pollution from manufacturing. Many trading agencies are working on reducing this problem by implementing different transporting systems but, although this has helped, it is still known as a current problem.

Hey there!

For your first question, consider the difference between emergency care and elective surgery. Elective surgery is planned out in advance and is considered a luxury to those who can pay for it only. In some situations, people can opt out of treating something with surgery, especially if it’s expensive, and may try other methods of treating what they have if other options exist. Also, as the price of a surgery procedure gets higher, less people will be able to pay for it, decreasing the demand. On the contrary, when it’s an emergency, people will often value the life of the urgent patient above all else, including money. Therefore, it can be assumed that urgent care will always be demanded regardless of its price fluctuation. 

For your second question, consider the general consensus of people who purchase health care (in general). These people likely think about the possibility of falling ill and needing the health care in the first place. These people also likely think of all that could happen on vacation, especially to foreign countries where immunities and illnesses could be very different, and would like to minimize the possibility of getting ill as much as possible. So, it would make sense that someone who buys more health care would spend less on vacationing and vice versa. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

A shift in the demand curve for pretzels increases the price of pretzels from $1.25 to $1.75 and its quantity demanded from 30 million to 35 million. the price elasticity of demand for pretzels is _____. ?

[ad_1]

Initial price, P₀ = $1.25
Initial demand, Q₀ = 30 million

New price, P₁ = $1.75
New demand, Q₁ = 35 million

By definition, price elasticity is
 eta = frac{(Q_{1}-Q_{0})/(Q_{1}+Q_{0})}{(P_{1}-P_{0})/(P_{1}+P_{0})}
η = (5/65)/(0.5/3)
   = 0.4615

Answer: η = 0.46 (nearest hundredth)

This means that greater demand makes it possible to increase the price. Usually, this is not the case because lowering the price increases sales.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

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

If elasticity of demand is 0.5, and the price is lowered from $20 to $19, by what percentage will quantity demanded rise?

[ad_1]

We have to go backwards:
After the discount in July ( 50 % ), the cost of jeans is $25.50
So the price before this discount was 2 * $22.50 = $45
In June, the price was reduced by 25%.
45 ——————75%
x ——————–100 %
45 : x = 75 : 100
45 * 100 = 75 x
4,500 = 75 x
x = 4,500 : 75
x = $60
Finally, in May the price was 250% of its wholesale cost.
60 —————– 250%
x ——————-100 %
60 : x = 250 : 100
6,000 = 250x
x = 6,000 : 250
x = $24
Answer: The cost of the jeans in the wholesale was $24.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Answer : The empirical formula is, Mo_2O_3

Solution :

First we have to calculate the mass of molybdenum and mass of oxygen.

Mass of molybdenum = Mass of crucible and molybdenum – Mass of crucible

Mass of molybdenum (Mo) = 39.52 – 38.26 =1.26 g

Mass of oxygen = Mass of crucible and molybdenum oxide – Mass of crucible and molybdenum

Mass of oxygen (O) = 39.84 – 39.52 =0.32 g

Molar mass of Mo = 96 g/mole

Molar mass of O = 16 g/mole

Step 1 : convert given masses into moles.

Moles of Mo = frac{text{ given mass of Mo}}{text{ molar mass of Mo}}= frac{1.26g}{96g/mole}=0.013moles

Moles of O = frac{text{ given mass of O}}{text{ molar mass of O}}= frac{0.32g}{16g/mole}=0.02moles

Step 2 : For the mole ratio, divide each value of moles by the smallest number of moles calculated.

For Mo = frac{0.013}{0.013}=1

For O = frac{0.02}{0.013}=1.5

The ratio of Mo : O = 1 : 1.5

In the whole number the ratio of Mo : O = 2 : 3

The mole ratio of the element is represented by subscripts in empirical formula.

Therefore, the empirical formula is, Mo_2O_3

HELP Read the selection below from Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and complete the statement that follows. There is likewise another diversion which is only shown before the emperor and the empress, and first minister, upon particular occasions. The emperor lays on the table three fine silken threads of six inches long; one is purple, the other yellow, and the third white. These threads are proposed as prizes for those persons whom the emperor has a mind to distinguish by a peculiar mark of his favor. . . . The emperor holds a stick in his hands, both ends parallel to the horizon, while the candidates advancing, one by one, sometimes leap over the stick, sometimes creep under it, backward and forward, several times, according as the stick is advanced or depressed. All of the following excerpts from the passage above work together to illustrate exaggeration except, __________. A.“The emperor holds a stick in his hands, both ends parallel to the horizon . . .” B.“The emperor lays on the table three fine silken threads . . .” C.“There is likewise another diversion . . .” D.“These threads are proposed as prizes . . .”

The correct answer is C. “There is likewise another diversion . . .”

Explanation:

“Gulliver’s Travels” is a book written by Jonathan Swift that tells the story of Lemuel Gulliver as he travels to different remote regions and encounters particular customs and people. The main purpose of Swift this book was to explore human nature and criticize aspects related to society and politics of the 18th century, because of this in “Gulliver’s Travels” it is common to find satire, which is the use of exaggeration and ridicule to criticize the absurdity of some aspects of society to create social criticism. This can be seen in the excerpt from the question in which Gulliver witnesses the emperor, empress  and first ministers participate lead contest in which the prizes are silken threads and in which the emperor moves a stick horizontally while the candidates jump or avoid being hit by the stick, this contest or practice is mainly ridicule and exaggerated as the prizes and the process seem absurd.

This exaggeration is shown in the description given by the narrator during the process but at the beginning of the text when he is just introducing what he observed. Therefore,  the excerpt that does not show the exaggeration factor is “There is likewise another diversion . . .” as in this section of the text the narrator is just introducing the particular game or practice he observed but still does not refer to the ridicule and exaggerated elements in it.

Which part of this excerpt from President Barack Obama’s remarks on the Buffet rule uses the logical fallacy of false dilemma? [There are enough excuses for inaction in Washington.] We certainly don’t need more excuses.[ I’d just point out that the Buffett Rule is something that will get us moving in the right direction towards fairness, towards economic growth]. It will help us close our deficit and it’s a lot more specific than anything that the other side has proposed so far. And if Republican in Congress were truly concerned with deficits and debt, then I’m assuming they wouldn’t have just proposed to spend an additional $4.6 trillion on lower tax rates, [including an average tax cut of at least $150,000 for every millionaire in America]. {They want to go in the opposite direction.} They want to double down on some of the inequities that already exist in the tax code. If we’re going to keep giving somebody like me or some of the people in this room tax breaks that we don’t need and we can’t afford, then one of two things happens: [Either you’ve got to borrow more money to pay down a deeper deficit, or you’ve got to demand deeper sacrifices from the middle class, and you’ve got to cut investments that help us grow as an economy.]

Answer and Explanation:

 The part of the excerpt from president Barack Obama’s remarks on the Buffet rule that uses the logical fallacy of false dilemma is “Either you’ve got to borrow…or you’ve got to demand deeper sacrifices…” because he is addressing a complex issue  that might have several proposals  to solve it, however, he is reducing  it to only two options: “either-or”, which is a type of manipuation.

And thus for a time I was occupied by exploded systems, mingling, like an unadept, a thousand contradictory theories and floundering desperately in a very slough of multifarious knowledge, guided by an ardent imagination and childish reasoning, till an accident again changed the current of my ideas. When I was about fifteen years old we had retired to our house near Belrive, when we witnessed a most violent and terrible thunderstorm. It advanced from behind the mountains of Jura, and the thunder burst at once with frightful loudness from various quarters of the heavens. I remained, while the storm lasted, watching its progress with curiosity and delight. As I stood at the door, on a sudden I beheld a stream of fire issue from an old and beautiful oak which stood about twenty yards from our house; and so soon as the dazzling light vanished, the oak had disappeared, and nothing remained but a blasted stump. When we visited it the next morning, we found the tree shattered in a singular manner. It was not splintered by the shock, but entirely reduced to thin ribbons of wood. I never beheld anything so utterly destroyed. Before this I was not unacquainted with the more obvious laws of electricity. On this occasion a man of great research in natural philosophy was with us, and excited by this catastrophe, he entered on the explanation of a theory which he had formed on the subject of electricity and galvanism, which was at once new and astonishing to me. All that he said threw greatly into the shade Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, and Paracelsus, the lords of my imagination; but by some fatality the overthrow of these men disinclined me to pursue my accustomed studies. It seemed to me as if nothing would or could ever be known. All that had so long engaged my attention suddenly grew despicable. By one of those caprices of the mind which we are perhaps most subject to in early youth, I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration. What is the effect of having Victor summarize the events of his childhood rather than telling them in detail? Readers can only guess at who Victor really is. Readers can see the events from more than one perspective. Readers cannot form an opinion without Victor’s interpretation. Readers see little to suggest Victor is guilty of any crime. I am not sure about this one but I think the answer is the third one

Describe the effects of divorce on children under five, school-aged children, and teenagers.

Answer:

The effects of divorce on children under five, school aged, and teenagers are totally different among them.

Explanation:

Firstly, I think children under five take divorce slightly because they are not all aware of the mother-father situation and they do not take it seriously. The most important for them at that age is to play and be children. Secondly, school aged take divorce a little bit more serious and they start to understand that parents are separated for a reason and they start asking questions all the time so, you as a parent need to be really smart on your answers so it does not affect your child’s feelings and the family environment and lastly, teenagers take divorce more aggressively because at that age they already know many things and they do not take it very well as in the other ages. For example, at this age if your parents get divorced, most teenagers find peace and calm on their friends and the world around them but not the family, they become rebellious and they believe they have the world in their hands so, I think it is a bad idea to get a divorce when your children become teenagers.

Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity skill and courage or as some might say level of foolishness. Which answer contains the BEST form of punctuation to use in the above sentence? A. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage, or as some might say level of foolishness. B. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage (or as some might say level of foolishness.) C. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity skill and courage, or (as some might say) level of foolishness. D. Although extreme sports demand mental and physical control, the movements are limited only by an individual’s creativity, skill, and courage or, as some might say, level of foolishness. Please select the best answer from the choices provided

D is the correct answer. the comma is needed after the first part of the sentence because “although extreme sports … control” is a dependent clause; it isn’t a full thought and you have to connect it to the rest of the sentence lest it be a fragment. “creativity,” “skill,” and “courage” require commas because they’re a series of items and you have to separate them for clarity. “as some might say” is between commas because it is something like an aside–you’re specifying that only SOME might deem it foolish.
