Why is an ecosystem’s net primary production (NPP) lower than its gross primary production (GPP)? A.NPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers. B.NPP reflects the gain of oxygen due to respiration by the primary producers. C.GPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers.

Hi. I think it would be A. Heres how NPP and GPP work: NPP stands for net primary productivity and GPP means gross primary productivity. GPP is basically the entire amount that an ecosystem or area has. NPP is the amount minus the amount lost to the environment. You might …

Optimization problem:A manufacturer determines that x employees on a certain production line will produce y units per month where . To obtain the maximum monthly production, how many employees should be assigned to the production line?**It is NOT sufficient to find an answer that you think is a max or a min without testing for relative extrema. You MUST test relative extrema at all times by using either the first or second derivative test even if you only have one critical value/point.

Cal problem! given production P(x)=75x^2-0.2x^4 To find relative extrema, we need to find P'(x) and solve for P'(x)=0. P'(x)=150x-0.8x^3    [by the power rule] Setting P'(x)=0 and solve for extrema.150x-0.8x^3=0  =>x(150-0.8x^2)=0 =>0.8x(187.5-x^2)=00.8x(5sqrt(15/2)-x)(5sqrt(15/2)+x)=0=>x={0,+5sqrt(15/2), -5sqrt(15/2)}   by the zero product rule.[note: eqation P'(x)=0 can also be solved by the quadratic formula] Reject negative …

The four steps necessary to complete a cost of production report in a process cost system are 1. allocate costs to transferred and partially completed units 2. determine the units to be assigned costs 3. determine the cost per equivalent unit 4. calculate equivalent units of production the correct ordering of the steps is 2, 3, 4, 1 2, 4, 3, 1 4, 2, 3, 1 2, 3, 1, 4

127=7 (mod n) means when 127 is divided by n, the division leaves a remainder of 7. The statement is equivalent to120=0 (mod n), meaning that n divides 120. All divisors of 120 will satisfy the statement because 120 divided by a divisor (factor) will leave a remainder of 0. …

A small publishing company is planning to publish a new book. The production costs will include one-time fixed costs (such as editing) and variable costs (such as printing). There are two production methods it could use. With one method, the one-time fixed costs will total $53,808 , and the variable costs will be $12.50 per book. With the other method, the one-time fixed costs will total $17,328 , and the variable costs will be $20.50 per book. For how many books produced will the costs from the two methods be the same?

Harris corporation produces a single product. last year, harris manufactured 27,970 units and sold 22,200 units. production costs for the year were as follows: fixed manufacturing overhead $335,640 variable manufacturing overhead $240,542 direct labor $131,459 direct materials $234,948 sales were $1,043,400, for the year, variable selling and administrative expenses were $113,220, and fixed selling and administrative expenses were $198,587. there was no beginning inventory. assume that direct labor is a variable cost. the contribution margin per unit would be: (do not round intermediate calculations.) $21.30 per unit $20.20 per unit $25.30 per unit $15.70 per unit

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, …
