## Jason corporation has invested in a machine that cost \$75,000, that has a useful life of fifteen years, and that has no salvage value at the end of its useful life. the machine is being depreciated by the straight-line method, based on its useful life. it will have a payback period of six years. given these data, the simple rate of return on the machine is closest to: (ignore income taxes in this problem.)

We can solve
this problem by first calculating the annual net cash inflow. This can be
solved by remembering that:

Payback period
= Initial investment / Annual net
cash inflow

6 years = \$75,000
/ Annual net
cash inflow

Therefore,
Annual net
cash inflow = \$12,500

Next, we
calculate for the cost. The cost we will consider here is the depreciation
value of the machine.
Annual depreciation
= \$75,000 / 15 years = \$5,000

Therefore the annual net operating income is:
Annual net operating income = \$12,500 – \$5,000 = \$7,500

Simple rate of
return is calculated by:
Simple rate of
return = Annual net operating income / Initial
investment
Simple rate of
return = \$7,500 /
\$75,000 = 0.1 = 10%

## 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

## Calculating the return on investment using financial leverage. suppose Dave invested only 20,000 of his own money and borrowed 180,000 interest-free from his rich father. what was his return on investment?

The correct option is B) \$680.

Step-by-step explanation:

Consider the provided information.

Her total amount invested was \$1,500. At the end of the year, she had earned \$106.40 in interest.

Let she invested x amount with 8% interest rate.

Total amount she invested was \$1,500, thus the amount she invested with 6% interest rate was 1500-x.

Total interest she earn was \$106.40

Write this information into mathematical form.

Hence, she invested \$820 with 8% interest rate.

The amount she invested with 6% interest rate was 1500-x.

Substitute the value of x in above.

1500-820=680

Hence, she invested \$680 with 6% interest rate.

The correct option is B) \$680.

## Against the wind a commercial airline in south america flew 784 miles in 4 hours. with a tailwind the return trip took 3.53 hours. what was the speed of the plane in still? air

a) The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) The total distance traveled by the officer was 225 m.

Explanation:

The equations for the position and velocity of an object moving in a straight line are as follows:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

v = v0 + a · t

Where:

x = position at time t

x0 = initial position

v0 = initial velocity

t = time

a = acceleration

v = velocity at time t

a)When the officer reaches the motorist, the position of the motorist is the same as the position of the officer:

x motorist = x officer

Using the equation for the position:

x motirist = x0 + v · t (since a = 0).

x officer = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

Let´s place our frame of reference at the point where the officer starts following the motorist so that x0 = 0 for both:

x motorist = x officer

x0 + v · t = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²      (the officer starts form rest, then, v0 = 0)

v · t = 1/2 · a · t²

Solving for t:

2 v/a = t

t = 2 · 15.0 m/s/ 2.00 m/s² = 15 s

The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) Now, we can calculate the speed of the officer using the time calculated in a) and the  equation for velocity:

v = v0 + a · t

v = 0 m/s + 2.00 m/s² · 15 s

v = 30 m/s

The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) Using the equation for the position, we can find the traveled distance in 15 s:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

x = 1/2 · 2.00 m/s² · (15s)² = 225 m

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, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = \$234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$8.4

Direct labor per unit = \$131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = \$240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = \$8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = \$113,220 / 22,200
units sold = \$5.1

TE = \$26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = \$47 – \$26.8

CM = \$20.2 per unit

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.

Slavery started in the colonies because the colonists needed more people to work in their tobacco/cotton/farming fields.
Slaves were brought on ships traveling across the Atlantic, huddled and packed together tightly with little food and water.
New England: Mainly house work, and working to help bring in fishing for their masters.
Middle: farming and manual work
South: farming, cotton-picking, etc.
Jobs were different in each region, because in each region, terrain, resources, and the ‘health’ of the land were very different
Slaves were important to the colonial economy, because they needed cheaper and more workers for their farms and such. IF you brought more colonists, it would have been harder, because they essentially don’t want to work on someone else’s land, and would just go find theres

## At what point in the plot of The Pearl does this event occur? Kino and Juana return to La Paz.

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 🙂

The answer to the question: Although she does not have a background in law, she hopes to land the job because of the:___, would be: Screening effect.

Explanation:

The screening effect is a theory that is used by companies and recruiters in order to effectively select and screen the best candidates for a specific position, even if these candidates may not fulfill all the requirements for that position. What the theory does is propose that candidates who have completed a college degree show their capacities, even if these are not specifically related to an expected topic, by simply achieving this goal, and are therefore worthy to be taken into account for selection. In the case of Tracy, she has not just fulfilled the part of the theory of finishing her degree, but she has overachieved by obtaining the best degrees in topics that are related to a job as a legal assistant. The screening effect will allow recruiters to see Tracy´s records and take her into account, even if she has never had any legal experience, due to her achievements in related topics.
