Average length of queue, Lq = λ^2/μ/(μ-λ)
μ is service rate, λ is arrival rate
Mean time to service = 15 minutes (decoration)
Service rate, μ = 60 / 15 = 4 per hour
It is given that the mean length of the queue for decorating is not to exceed five cakes, Lq = λ^2/μ/(μ-λ) = 5
λ^2/4/(4-λ) = 5
λ = 3.4164 per hour
Mean time between arrivals = 60 / 3.4164 = 17.56 minutes
The minimum acceptable mean time between arrivals = 17.56 minutes
Kansas Enterprises purchased equipment for $77,500 on January 1, 2021. The equipment is expected to have a ten-year service life, with a residual value of $7,050 at the end of ten years. Using the double-declining balance method, depreciation expense for 2021 would be __________.
The depreciation expense would amount to $15,500
Under the double declining method, the formula is as:
Annual depreciation expense = Net Book Value × 2 / Number of years
Net book value amounts to $77,500
Number of years is 10 years
Putting the value above:
Annual depreciation expense = $ 77,500 × 2 / 10
= $77,500 × 0.2
NOTE: Under the method of double declining, the residual or the salvage value is not considered or ignored.
When using the double-declining method, residual value is ignored.
At December 31, balances in Manufacturing Overhead are Shimeca Company—debit $2,150, Garcia Company—credit $997. Prepare the adjusting entry for each company at December 31, assuming the adjustment is made to cost of goods sold.
The adjusting entries should be:
December 31, adjusting entry Shimeca Company
Dr Cost of goods sold 2,150
Cr Manufacturing overhead costs 2,150
December 31, adjusting entry Garcia Company
Dr Manufacturing overhead costs 997
Cr Cost of goods sold 997
Both accounts (manufacturing overhead and cogs) are expense accounts that have debit balances, but manufacturing overhead is included under cogs and has to be closed against it at the end of the year.
COGS 1,153 debit
MO 1,153 credit
The manufacturing overhead debit represent the actual overhead
while the credit represent the applied overhead for the firm and charged into their product already.
At the end of the period, we adjust to match the applied against the actual overhead.
As we apply 997 while the actual cost was 2,150 we underapplied we must charge more cost to our product.
We credit the manufacturing overhead and post that cost against cost of good sold.
2,150 - 997 = 1,153
Novartis created the Novartis Research Institute for Tropical Diseases in Singapore. The institute is unique because it is a not-for-profit organization that focuses on the discovery of new drugs for the treatment of neglected diseases, such as dengue fever and tuberculosis. Not only is this good business, it is also: A. mandated by Supreme Court rulings
B. socially responsible
C. not ethically motivated
D. demonstrating a lack of concern for diversity
E. using environmental marketing
B. Socially responsible.
Tuberculosis and Dengue fever are endemic to the tropical regions of West Africa and the south Americas. Tuberculosis is of public health importance and affects millions of people in these regions yearly. It is caused by a bacteria called mycobacterium tuberculosis and is highly contagious. It mostly attacks the airways and lungs but can also affect other organs like the liver in people with weak or absent immunity such as in conditions like HIV and cancer. It is spread through air droplets when people with the infection cough, sneeze or spit. Tuberculosis can be cured and prevented and this is possible through the various researches done by companies like Novartis.
Dengue fever is a viral infection caused by mosquitoes in the tropical regions. It's symptoms include high fever, joint pains, bleeding and shock. There's no known cure for it.
Other neglected diseases include; hookworm infection, ascariasis, schistosomiasis, leprosy and trypanosomiasis also known as African sleeping sickness and caused by trypanosoma brucei.
Novartis research centers for tropical diseases offer social responsibility in looking into these neglected but fatal diseases and trying to find ways in which we can better manage and prevent them. Manufacturing affordable and readily available medications and providing them in these impoverished regions says a lot about the social responsibility and ethical standards of this company and therefore putting their name out there as one of today's global heavyweights in pharmaceuticals as well as charitable organizations.
At the close of a federal civil trial, the court held in favor of the student loan provider for the full amount plus post-verdict interest at 8%. When the court clerk typed up the final order to send to all parties, she accidentally typed in 9% as the post-verdict interest rate. The law student did not notice the error until 14 months after the judgment was entered. She immediately filed a motion for relief from judgment based on a clerical mistake to correct the order to reflect the accurate interest rate.
D) Yes, because motions for relief from judgment to correct clerical mistakes can be made at any time.
Since there is no time limit to file a motion fro relief from judgment to correct clerical mistakes, the court will likely grant the motion. The court order should correct the error dates back to the time when the judgment was entered.
This is called a clerical mistake because court clerk incorrectly recorded the interest rate at 9% while the court ordered that it should be 8%.
Dominic’s boss at the Chuck Wagon restaurant expects that he will stay late to clean up the bar areas on Friday and Saturday nights. However, Dominic needs to be home to take over babysitting from his wife, who works a night shift. This is a work-family conflict. True or false?
Work-family conflict is a form of conflict that occurs when an individual is torn between performing expected roles at work and family roles, in such a way that carrying out both roles becomes impossible without creating an imbalance. Devoting more attention and energy to one would mean, reducing devotion to the other. Dominic's family role interferes with his expected role at work.

Miller Company makes two types of chairs. One of the chairs is a rocking chair. The other is a straight-back chair. Both chairs are made by hand. Miller Company uses a companywide overhead rate that is based on direct labor hours to assign overhead costs to the two products. If Miller automates the production of straight-back chairs and continues to use direct labor hours as a companywide allocation basis:
C. straight back chairs will be overcosted
Miller Company makes two types of chairs. One of the chairs is a rocking chair. The other is a straight-back chair. Both chairs are made by hand. Miller Company uses a company-wide overhead rate that is based on direct labor hours to assign overhead costs to the two products. If Miller automates the production of straight-back chairs and continues to use direct labor hours as a company-wide allocation basis:
A. rocking chairs will be undercosted
B. There should be no impact on unit cost
C. straight back chairs will be overcosted
D. rocking chairs will be overcosted.
If Miller automates the production of straight-back chairs and continues to use direct labor hours as a company-wide allocation basis then the straight back chairs will be overcosted because the automation process directly implies that it no longer drives labor hours since it is no longer made by hand.
Automated processes should use machine hours rather than labor hours, for the allocation of its overhead.
The question is incomplete, the options include:
a). rocking chairs will be undercosted
b). there should be no impact on unit cost
c). straight back chairs will be overcosted
d). rocking chairs will be overcosted. is Correct
The immediate working hours of straight back chairs will be shortened following the automation of straight back chairs, and that of rocking chairs will remain unchanged.
Suggesting the overall overhead remains unregulated, Gross Direct working hours would minimize the ratio of Direct rocking chair working hours in total direct working hours.
And the overhead distribution on the basis of Direct Labor hours for Rocking chair would also increase as before. And it would overcost the rocking chairs.

The Lory Company had net earnings of $127,000 this past year. Dividends of $38,100 were paid. The company's equity was $1,587,500. If Lory has 100,000 shares outstanding with a current market price of $11.625 per share, and a dividend growth rate is 5.6%, what is the firmâ€™s discount rate?
Rate = 9.05%
To calculate the Dividend per share we'll have to
= Total Dividends Paid / Total Shares
= 0.38 Dividend per share
So, if we are to be using the constant Growth Model,
P = Price of Stock
= Estimated Dividends for next period
r = Required rate of return
g = Growth Rate
11.625 = 0.38(1.056)/(r - 0.056)
r = 9.05%
Hint: Round your answers in the first row down to the nearest baseball cap. For example, if you find that the deposit will cover 20.7 baseball caps, you would round the purchasing power down to 20 baseball caps under the assumption that Alyssa will not buy seven-tenths of a baseball cap.
is equal to 200 baseball caps.
given the following inflation rates, how does the purchasing power of Alyssa change:
inflation rates for 1 year 5% 10% 15%
new price of caps $15.75 $16.50 $17.25
in 1 yer Alyssa will have $3,300 $3,300 $3,300
purchasing power 209 200 191
Supervisor: "We reached our goal by helping 2000 customers this month which is 14% more than last month." Employee: "That means that we must have helped __________ customers last month."
The correct word for the blank is approximately 1,754 customers. This means that 1,754 customers were helped last month.
The given information in the context are:
Total number of Customers = 2000
The percentage of the customers that were served = 14%
Let the number of customers helped last month be x customers.
Therefore, the total number of customers is 1754.
To know more about the number of customers, refer to the link below:
Approximately 1,754 customers were helped last month
The question asks to know the number of customers helped last month given that percentage change.
Let the number of customers helped last month be x customers.
This means :
14/100 * x = 2000 - x
14x = 100(2000-x)
14x = 200,000 - 100x
114x = 200,000
x = 200,000/14
x = 1,754
Approximately, 1,754 customers were helped last month
Broker Nina and Broker Vesta work for Principal Broker Griffin. Vesta is working with Marlin, who is interested in purchasing a property in McMinnville. Nina's client, Cody, is also looking to purchase a property in McMinnville. A very well priced property has recently been listed by a competing brokerage. Nina and Vesta present the property to their buyers and both Cody and Marlin are interested in making an offer on the property. Broker Vesta is in a ____________ relationship with Buyer Marlin.A. Disclosed limited agency.B. Single agency.
B) Single agency.
In real estate, a single agency relationship means that the broker can only represent one of the parties involved in the transaction, either the buyer or the seller, but he/she cannot represent both parties. Most broker-client relationships are single agencies, since that way the broker should pursuit his/her client's best interest.
In a dual agency relationship, the broker represents both he seller and the buyer.
Stone and brick are substitutes in home construction. Suppose the price of stone increases due to new regulations for the stone quarrying industry. Illustrate the impact this will have on the market for bricks. 1. The Brick Market, Equilibrium price:_______.a. increases.b. decreases.c. remains constant.d. change is ambiguous. 2. Equilibrium quantity:_______. a. increases.b. decreases.c. remains constan. d. change is ambiguous.
1. The Brick Market, Equilibrium price: A) INCREASES
2. Equilibrium quantity: A) INCREASES
When the price of a good A increases, the quantity demanded for its substitute good B increases. This situation eventually will lead to a new equilibrium price which matches the price of both goods. The substitute good B's equilibrium price and quantity will increase, and the price of the good A should decrease due to lower demand.
