My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball. I smile back. “Don’t smile,” he says. “Just because I’m smiling, don’t assume I couldn’t kill you right now. Know that about a man.” Source: Orner, Peter. “The Raft.” The Atlantic Online.

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


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.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

8 lines. Rhyme scheme aabbccdd. If I managed to write that in about 4 minutes, you could write something much better and longer in like 30 minutes. You can use my rubbish poem as inspiration lol. Good luck X

In the _________, if profits are not possible, the perfectly competitive firm will seek out the quantity of output where _____________________ .


The following equation of parabola is given:

p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

where p(x) = y

This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:

y – k = a (x – h)^2

Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,

y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)

Completing the square:

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _

Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2

Since b = -48        therefore,

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405

y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)

y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2

Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).

The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum
profit.

Read the excerpt from Act I of The Importance of Being Earnest. Algernon. In the third place, I know perfectly well whom she will place me next to, to-night. She will place me next Mary Farquhar, who always flirts with her own husband across the dinner-table. That is not very pleasant. Indeed, it is not even decent . . . and that sort of thing is enormously on the increase. The amount of women in London who flirt with their own husbands is perfectly scandalous. It looks so bad. It is simply washing one’s clean linen in public. Besides, now that I know you to be a confirmed Bunburyist I naturally want to talk to you about Bunburying. Which part of the excerpt contains a paradox? “. . . I know perfectly well whom she will place me next to . . .” “She will place me next Mary Farquhar, who always flirts . . .” “It is simply washing one’s clean linen in public.” “Besides, now that I know you to be a confirmed Bunburyist . . .”


Chaucer’s descriptions from “The Monk’s Tale” which best illustrates Fortune as unreliable is “And when men trust in her she then will fail / And cover her bright  face as with a cloud.”

The monk’s tale fits the category of parable because it tells the results of different people’s good and bad behavior.

The Monk tale is a series of tragedies which represents the news that the wealth and position is just an illusion. He refers through the example of many falling from high to low ends, such as the example of Lucifer falling from heaven. Through such example and stories, he continues to show the people who have fallen from grace.

Model of tragedies which Monk offers is a Boethian one that is which is a reminder of the versatility of the life itself, to bring on top to those who are crashing down on the grounds and that the tendency of the feminine, whimsical fortune to spin her wheels. Hence, it is a simple narrative and Boethian reminder that high status often ends inadequately.
