Down under boomerang, inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of \$2.64 million. the fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year tax life, after which time it will be worthless. the project is estimated to generate \$2,060,000 in annual sales, with costs of \$755,000. the tax rate is 35 percent and the required return on the project is 13 percent. what is the project’s npv?

To answer this problem, 1st let us calculate
the total annual cash flow.

We define the given variables:

Annual Income = \$2,060,000

Annual Cost = \$755,000

Annual Profit = \$2,060,000 – \$755,000 = \$1,305,000

Annual Tax = \$1,305,000 * 0.35 = \$456,750

Depreciation = \$2.64 million / 3 = \$880,000

Savings from Depreciation = \$880,000 * 0.35 = \$308,000

Therefore,

Annual Cash Flow = Annual Profit + Savings from
Depreciation

Annual Cash Flow = \$1,305,000 + \$308,000

Annual Cash Flow = \$1,613,000

The present value of annuity is:

P = A [1 – (1 + i)^-n ] / i

P = \$1,613,000 [1 – (1 + 0.13)^(-3)] / 0.13

P =
\$3,808,539.14 = NPV

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

= 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

Read the excerpt from The Code Book. More than a hundred million e-mails are sent around the world each day, and they are all vulnerable to interception. Digital technology has aided communication, but it has also given rise to the possibility of those communications being monitored. Which type of evidence is used in the excerpt? an example a story a quote a statistic

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

After the United States declared war to Germany approximately how long did it take for over a million Americans troops to arrive in Europe?

It took one year for over a million Americans troops to arrive in Europe after the United States declared war to Germany.

On 11 December 1941, four days following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States declaration of war against the Japanese Empire, Nazi Germany declared war against the United States, in reaction to what was considered to be a series of provocations by the United States government when the US was still officially neutral during World War II.

On December 11, 1941, the United States Congress declared war upon Germany, hours after Germany declared war on the United States after the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan.

25) Answer is: less metallic and more nonmetallic.

Electronegativity increases from left to right across a period, atoms have tendency to attract electrons.

Electronegativity (χ) is a property that describes the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons.

Radioisotope has an unstable atomic nucleus and emit energy and particles when it changes to a more stable form.

Francium (Fr) is element with atomic number 87 (87 protons and 87 electrons).

Boiling is the temperature at which the vapour pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding atmosphere.

The Celsius scale was based on 0°C for the freezing point of water and 100°C for the boiling point of water at 1 atm pressure.

There are two types of reaction:

1) endothermic reaction (chemical reaction that absorbs more energy than it releases, ΔH>0).

2) exothermic reaction (chemical reaction that releases more energy than it absorbs).

For example, the breakdown of ozone is an endothermic process. Ozone has lower energy than molecular oxygen (O₂) and oxygen atom, so ozone need energy to break bond between oxygen atoms.

The average kinetic energy of molecules depends on the temperature.

As temperature increases, molecules gain more energy from surrounding and move faster.

Kinetic energy (standard unit is the joule J) depends on speed of the molecule.

Solid gains kinetic energy to become a liquid and then becomes a gas.

This was famous Rutherford’s Gold Foil Experiment: he bombarded thin foil of gold with positive alpha particles.

Rutherford observed the deflection of alpha particles on the photographic film.

Alpha particles are helium atom particles, consist of two protons and two neutrons.

According to Rutherford model of the atom: atoms have their charge concentrated in a very small nucleus.

For example, calcium oxide.

Calcium oxide (CaO) has ionic bonds between calcium cations (Ca²⁺) and oxygen anions (O²⁻).

Because it has strong ionic bonds, it has high melting point (around 2600°C).

Ionic bond is the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions (cations and anions).

32) Answer is: a scientific model.

A scientific model is a representation of an idea, an object, a process or a system that is used to describe and explain phenomena that cannot be experienced directly.

33) Answer is: the superscript is mass number and the subscript is atomic number.

Atomic number(Z) is the number of protons, which is characteristic of a chemical element..

Mass number (A) is the total number of protons and neutrons in a nucleus.

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 _____. ?

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

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.

Read the excerpt from The Code Book. More than a hundred million e-mails are sent around the world each day, and they are all vulnerable to interception. Digital technology has aided communication, but it has also given rise to the possibility of those communications being monitored. According to Zimmermann, cryptographers have a duty to encourage the use of encryption and thereby protect the privacy of the individual: A future government could inherit a technology infrastructure that’s optimized for surveillance, where they can watch the movements of their political opposition, every financial transaction, every communication, every bit of e-mail, every phone call. Everything could be filtered and scanned and automatically recognized by voice recognition technology and transcribed. It’s time for cryptography to step out of the shadows of spies and the military, and step into the sunshine and be embraced by the rest of us. In the excerpt, the purpose of the statistic “more than a hundred million e-mails” is to show that digital information is widespread and available to monitoring. most e-mails that are sent are not viewed by the government. encryption has been used by the military but not ordinary citizens. e-mail is a good way for people to communicate nowadays.

Gather references, and prepare your résumé.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

The correct answer is – alms.

The alms is the pillar that is referring to giving to the poor and needy. It is practiced by lots of Muslims, and it is considered as an act of solidarity towards the followers of the faith that are in dire need of it. This includes giving money, food, and clothing, though occasionally it may even include shelter. It can be performed in person when some people go to the people that they want to give something as aid, to invite some person in need or that is poor at their homes, or it goes as donations in the mosques which afterwards take the responsibility to deliver them to the poor and in need.

Explain the method scientists use to study how Earth’s atmosphere and climate have changed during the past million years.

1. DNA

2. Prokariotic.

3. Crossing over.

4. Maple tree

5. Primary producers.

6. DIAGRAM NOT SHOWN

7. Lipids.

8. A

Explanation:

1. DNA is the macromolecule responsible for carrying the herederitary information of all cells, and even some viruses, with the exception of retroviruses.

2. Prokariotic cells (eubacteria and archeas) are cosmopolite, and lacks a membrane defined nucleus.

3. Crossing over.

During meiosis, homolog chromosomes pair and exchange genetic material, is also known as genetic recombination. This makes the chromosomes inherited not exactly equal to the corresponding from our fathers, or grandfathers.

4. Maple tree belongs to the clade Angiosperms: flowering plants, which produce seeds. Moss is a flowerless plant, this does not produce seeds. Lichen are composed from algae and cyanobacteria (so, not plants). Mushrooms are not plants.

5. Primary producers, such as bacteria and algae, can make organic  molecules from an abiotic source of energy.

6. DIAGRAM NOT SHOWN

7. Lipids are the main component of all biological membranes. In animals, specially cholesterols prevents the membrane from freezing, due its molecular structure. Tryglicerids, for example, provides besides thermal insulation, energy storage, filling space for keeping the organs together, among other functions.

8. The phosphorous is very slow, since it requires the extraction from rocks, starting from metereological processes (rain, erosion), Once in the soil, bacteria, fungi, plants and animals start to absorb it.

Select all answers that apply. Which of the following statements depend on the relative dating of events? Amphibians evolved before land reptiles. Bony fish first evolved about 420 million years ago. The Jurassic period began 200 million years ago. Elephants appear in the fossil record after dinosaurs became extinct

The correct answer is – B. Tropical climates have four distinct seasons.

The tropical climates are climates where it is summer throughout the whole year. The temperature is high and they receive large amounts of precipitation. While some receive precipitation throughout the whole year, usually in the afternoon hours, some have it seasonally, where they experience a wet season and a dry season, which are the only two seasons that appear in certain tropical climates.

Because of this, the tropical climates have the biggest diversity in both flora and fauna. The forests are thick and always green, and the animals of all sorts and sizes are in abundance.

Which of the following received more than 19 million votes during the 1992 presidential election as an independent candidate? George Bush Pat Buchanan Ross Perot Michael Dukakis

Based on choices I’ve seen listed elsewhere, I’d offer these as factors in bringing about African independence:

• The Pan-African movement encouraged nationalism and independence for Africa.
• African countries were inspired by independence movements in India and Vietnam.
• European governments had been weakened by World War II.

Context/explanation:

European nations had established colonial empires in Africa in the late 19th and early 20th century. Coming out of World War II, those European nations lacked the resources and energy to maintain far-away empires in Africa and Asia — as well as the ability to suppress independence movements that  broke out in those regions after the Second World War.

It was also the case that, following the period of the World Wars, there was a prevailing attitude that people should be allowed self-determination of their nations and governments.  In other words, attitudes favoring colonialism and imperialism were to be left behind, and all nations should be able to determine their own destinies.

India and Vietnam were two of the first to take on that challenge.  In August, 1945, HoChi Minh led the Vietnamese people in declaring their independence from France.  (Much war would follow, to accomplish that goal.)  India’s independence from Great Britain was declared in 1947, following a long struggle led by Mohandas Gandhi that had begun in the 1920s (and even somewhat earlier than that).  India and Vietnam were examples to independence-minded people on the African continent.

According to Horace Campbell, writing for Pambazuka News (Sep. 8, 2010), “Africans who had fought against fascism in all corners of the world were also of the view that Africa should become free and independent. In October 1945, the 5th Pan African Congress was held in Manchester, UK, and the African peoples also demanded self-rule.”

Pan-Africanism continued to grow stronger from their, emphasizing the need for African countries to cooperate to stand up for their strength as individual and independent nations.

The Non-Alignment Movement, to stand apart from the Cold War powers, was also a factor in strengthening African independence movements.  But your question asked for three factors, not four, so I am listing that as a footnote to the list rather than the main three choices.
