If a company has advance ticket sales totaling 2000000 for the upcoming football season the receipt of cash would be journalized as

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

Adult tickets to the fall play cost \$8 and student tickets cost \$4. The drama class sold 30 more adult tickets than student tickets to the fall play. If the class collected \$840 from ticket sales, how many adult tickets were sold? The drama class sold _____ adult tickets.

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

The GI Bill contributed to the growth of professional and white-collar jobs by granting US veterans benefits to attend universities.

Explanation:

The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as G.I. Bill, was a federal law through which millions of American war veterans from World War II received a series of benefits, including opportunities for university studies and retraining programs.

Thanks to G.I. Bill, war veterans from World War II got considerably greater opportunities than veterans from World War I. The law is also considered by historians and economists to have contributed significantly to the United States as a nation of knowledge during the post-war period and to the long-term economic growth.

Total cost of Ray’s car is \$28,908.50

Step-by-step explanation:

Basic costing of the car = \$26,500

Options costing = \$725.00

Total price = 26,500 + 725.00 = \$27,225

There is a 6% sales tax in his state.

Sales tax = 6% of total price

= × 27,225

= 0.06 × 27,225 = \$1,633.50

Combined of license and registration fees = \$50.00

Now add all to the total price

\$27,225 + \$1,633.50 + \$50.00 = \$28,908.50

Total cost of Ray’s car is \$28,908.50

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

True-False: If you buy a raffle ticket and there is only one prize available, you can double your probability of winning that prize by buying two tickets.

Volume of cone A = 4 pi cubic inches , Volume of cone B= 16 pi cubic inches.

Volume of cone B is 4 times of volume of cone A.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : Cone A has a radius of 2 inches and a height of 3 inches. In cone B, the height is the same, but the radius is doubled.

To find : Calculate the volume of both cones. Which statement is accurate.

Solution : We have given two cones A and cone B.

Radius of cone A =  2 inches.

Height of cone A= 3 inches.

Radius of cone B=  4 inches. ( double of radius of cone A)

Height of cone A= 3 inches.

Volume of cone =  .

Volume of cone A = .

Volume of cone A = 4 pi cubic inches.

Volume of cone B =  .

Volume of cone B= 16 pi cubic inches.

Volume of cone B is 4 times of volume of cone A.

Therefore, Volume of cone A = 4 pi cubic inches , Volume of cone B= 16 pi cubic inches.

Volume of cone B is 4 times of volume of cone A.

Mr. singh bought 2 adult zoo tickets for a total of \$22, as well as 4 children’ tickets. he spent \$54 in total. how much was each children’s ticket?

The total commission be \$1470 .

Step-by-step explanation:

As given

Cody Summer sells tires for tractor trailers.

Last month he sold \$18,000 worth of tires.

Divide this \$18000  in three parts = \$6000 + \$6000 + \$6000

As given

He earns 4.5% commission on the first \$6,000 in sales.

4.5% is written in the decimal form.

= 0.045

Cody Summer earns commission on  first \$6,000 in sales = 0.045 × 6000

=\$ 270

8% commission on the next \$6,000 .

8% is written in the decimal form.

= 0.08

Cody Summer earns commission on second \$6,000 in sales = 0.08 × 6000

=\$ 480

12% commission on sales over \$12,000.

As the total Cody Summer sold \$18,000 worth of tires.

Thus

worth of tires sales over \$12,000 = \$18000 – \$12000

=\$6000

12% is written in the decimal form.

= 0.12

Commission on sales over \$12,000 = 0.12 × 6000

=\$720

Total commission = Cody Summer earns commission on  first \$6,000 in sales + Cody Summer earns commission on second \$6,000 in sales + Commission on sales over \$12,000

Put the value in the above

= \$ 270 + \$ 480 + \$720

= \$1470

Therefore the total commission be \$1470 .
