## 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
employees

## Why does the argument presented below NOT prove the point being argued? "You should not hire Leah. Last week, her boyfriend drove all the way from Oklahoma to Illinois to see her, and after he arrived, she broke up with him. Can you believe that? Why couldn't she have done that over the phone or something? Instead, she waited until he spent all that time and money to go see her. You shouldn't hire somebody who would treat someone else like that." A. We should not feel pity for Leah. She decided to act cold and what goes around comes around. B. Leah should definitely be hired because she is the best person for the job. C. Leah's relationship with her boyfriend does not have anything to do with her qualifications for the job. D. Leah's boyfriend must have done something really bad for her to do that to him.

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

Economic profit is calculated as:

Economic profit = Total Revenues – Total Cost

Total cost both includes explicit and implicit cost. In
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

We know that
the Manufacturing Overhead is applied using direct labor cost as the driver. The predetermined application rate using the direct labor
cost is calculated:

Rate = \$600,000/(\$6.00 x 50,000)

Rate = \$600,000/\$300,000

Rate = \$2 of overhead is applied for every \$1 of direct labor cost

Since the actual direct labor cost is \$325,000, therefore:

Manufacturing Overhead = \$325,000 x \$2

Since actual Manufacturing Overhead is only equal to \$620,000, this means that
it is “over-applied by \$30,000”
