## A company is setting its direct materials and direct labor standards for its leading product. Direct material costs from the supplier areâ€‹ \$7 per squareâ€‹ foot, net of purchase discount.â€‹ Freight-in amounts toâ€‹ \$0.10 per square foot. Basic wages of the assembly line personnel areâ€‹ \$19 per hour. Payroll taxes are approximatelyâ€‹ 25% of wages. How much is the direct labor cost standard perâ€‹ hour

The formula for calculating the direct labor standard is:

Direct labor standard = Basic wages + Payroll tax

or

Direct labor standard = Basic wages + 25% of Basic wages

Substituting the given values into the equation:

Direct labor standard = \$19 + 0.25 * \$19

Direct labor standard = \$23.75

## 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.

## A lady walks in a store and steals 100.00 from the register without the owners knowledge. the lady comes back in 5m and makes a 70.00 purchase with the 100.00 , and the owner gives her 30.00 in change. ….. how much did the owner lose

Given that the lady stole \$100 and came back later and spent \$70 upon which she was given \$30 change, the owner of the store lost \$100. This is because, when the lady came back the only thing she did was to exchange the money she had stolen with the the goods worth the same value that she stole.

## Why is it risky to invest in a commodity? A commodity has little or no value as a long-term investment. Commodity stocks cannot be traded after you purchase them. The commodity’s price might drop significantly very quickly. The investment will tie up your money for more than one year.

It is risky to invest in a commodity because: The commodity’s price might drop significantly very quicklly
Commodity products are circulated really quickly. This will affect the rarity of the product in the markets. If the rarity is high, the price will increase and vice versa. This exact condition makes the price for that commodity also fluctuated really quickly.

On a second trip to the grocery store, you purchased 4 pounds of sugar and 10 pounds of flour for a total cost of \$4.60. Which of the following represent the system of equations for this problem.

C. Yes, because the population values appear to be normally distributed.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given is a graph which shows the distribution of values of a population

The graph has the following characteristics

i) Bell shaped

ii) symmerical about mid vertical line

iii) Unimodal with mode = median =mean

iv) As x deviates more from the mean probability is decreasing and also curve approaches asymptotically the x axis

## Read the scenario. Imagine you are at a gas station to put some gas in a car, and you see the following directions. Turn off car engine. Gas is extremely flammable. Do not use cell phones, other electronic devices, or anything that could cause sparks or a flame. Pay with credit card at pump or pre-pay inside store. After making payment, remove nozzle and select the grade of gasoline desired. Remain at your vehicle as you pump gas. When finished, return nozzle to pump. Collect change and receipts inside store. According to these directions, which of the following is true? 1. If you do not have a credit card, you can pre-pay for the gas inside the store. 2. MP3 players should not be used as you pump gas, but it is okay to use a cell phone. 3. If you want to purchase a bottle of water while pumping gas, you should enter the store while the nozzle is in your car to save time. 4.If you want a receipt, push “yes” at the pump and one will be printed.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

According to the US Constitution federal election laws regulate the election of members of Congress.

Explanation:

The Constitution of the United States in Article 1, Section 4, grants the States the power to regulate, through what it is known as federal election laws, the congressional election process. Section 4 also establishes that both Congress and State legislatures can regulate the “times, places, and manners of holding elections for Senators and Representatives”. The federal election laws that the Constitution gives in order to regulate the election of members of the Congress cover all the aspects of the voting process, such as voter registration, prevention of fraud and methods to organize the results. The Constitution also gives the guarantees and rights for voting and for participating in a Congress election regarding citizenship, residency and age requirements.

1) Water has very high specific heat.

2) It expands when it freezes

3) ability to dissolve in ionic substances

4) Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid.

Explanation:

1) Water molecules due to their high specific heat , undergo relatively less increase in temperature after absorbing heat. So they prevent their adjoining area to experience sharp increase in temperature.

2) Water is an example which expands on freezing. In it , large spaces are left between molecules when it cools. It happens because hydrogen bonds prevent any two molecules to come very close thereby  creating gaps. This gap is filled up when ice melts , which results in overall reduction in volume of water.

3) Uneven distribution of charge results in water molecules becoming polar in nature . A polar substance  can be dissolved in polar solvents only.

4) It is due to property of surface tension. Property  of surface tension results due to molecules of water near the surface experiencing a  net downward  force due to hydrogen bonds . It is due to fewer hydrogen bonds made by them.

## Find the number of ways to purchase 5 different kinds of drinks from a selection of 13 drinks.

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.

## A(n) _____ is a characteristic that consumers may have difficulty assessing even after purchase because they do not have the necessary knowledge or experience.

The three primary
stakeholders are the banks, the merchants, and the consumers.

Banks = Against, since
this would mean that they will be receiving less

Merchants = For, since
they would be paying less

Consumers = Generally
unaffected. But I believe they would be more against the proposal because if
interchange fees are capped, then the banks will find other ways to retrieve
the lost revenues by other means, such as increasing the interest or etc.
