# Suppose a home in the northern US has an annual need for heat (delivered into the living space) of 120 million BTU. Any electricity used comes from a power plant burning natural gas with 45% efficiency, with energy losses of 6% in electricity transmission and distribution. Any natural gas used has pipeline and distribution losses of 2%. Compare the following alternatives in terms of natural gas use, showing your calculations for each.

Explanation:

45% efficiency of burning natural gas on 120 million BTU = 0.45 X 120 million = 54 million BTU

6% energy loss in electricity transmission and distribution = 0.06 X 54 million = 3.24 million

Utilized energy at a home, that is, 94% = 94 X 32.4/6 = 50.76 million

2% energy loss in pipeline and distribution = 0.02 X 54 million = 1.08 million

Utilized energy at a home , that is, 98% = 98 X 1.08 million = 52.92 million.

Six months ago, you purchased 300 shares of stock in Global Trading at a price of \$26.19 a share. The stock pays a quarterly dividend of \$.12 a share. Today, you sold all of your shares for \$27.11 per share. What is the total amount of your dividend income on this investment

When someone purchases 300 shares that pay a dividend of \$.12 every quarter, then the total amount of dividend income for six months will be \$72.

What is dividend income?

The amount of earnings made by holding the shares of a company that is distributed by the company as a part of its profits to the shareholders is known as dividend income.

For every quarter, dividend income is 300 × 0.12 = \$36. As a result, the income for two quarters will be 36 × 2 = \$72. This dividend income will be over and above the returns made over the trading of shares.

Hence, the significance of dividend income is aforementioned.

Suppose a company rents office space for one year, paying \$36,000 (\$3,000/month) in advance on September 1. Record the adjusting entry on December 31. (If no entry is required for a transaction/event, select "No journal entry required" in the first account field.)

1. Record the adjusting entry on December 31

Dr.            Cr.

Rent Expense      \$12,000

Prepaid Rent                       \$12,000

Explanation:

Expense accrued = 36,000 x (4/12) = \$12,000

On December 31 the accrued expense of \$ 12,000 is recorded, and adjusting entry will be posted with debit rent expense and credit prepaid rent accounts. Which will record the expense for 4 months and reduce the prepaid rent as 4 months have been passed.

B. They have the same rates of return.
C. They earn identical rewards per unit of total risk.
D. They earn identical rewards per unit of systematic risk.
E. They have identical Sharpe ratios also.

Answer: The correct answer is "D. They earn identical rewards per unit of systematic risk.".

Explanation: If you are comparing 3 values and by calculating, find that they all have the same Treynor ratio means that they earn identical rewards per unit of systematic risk.

A manufacturer of DVD players has monthly fixed costs of \$9500 and variable costs of \$55 per unit for one particular model. The company sells this model to dealers for \$90 each. (a) For this model DVD player, write the function for monthly total costs C(x).
C(x) =

(b) Write the function for total revenue R(x).
R(x) =

(c) Write the function for profit P(x).
P(x) =

(d) Find C(240).

C(240) =

(a) C(x) = 9500 + 55x

(b) R(x) = 90x

(c) P(x) = 35x - 9500

(d) C(240) = \$22,700

All functions are measured in \$.

Explanation:

The total revenue of an entity is a function of the number of units sold and the selling price per unit. The total cost is a function of the fixed cost and the variable cost (which is also a function of the units produced/sold). Profit is a function of sales and cost.

Given that monthly;

fixed costs = \$9500

variable costs = \$55 per unit

Selling price  = \$90 per unit

Where x is the number of units

total costs C(x) in \$ = 9500 + 55x

total revenue R(x) in \$ = 90x

profit P(x) in \$ = 90x - (9500 + 55x)

= 35x - 9500

C(240) = 9500 + 55(240)

= \$22,700

Subsidizing medical services through medicare a. makes medical services available to a large percentage of the? population, who otherwise could not afford them.

b. drives a wedge between the price received by providers and the price perceived by consumers.

c. is a relatively low percentage of u.s. gdp compared to other nations.

d. all of the above are true.

e. only a and b are true.

I think the correct answer is E. Subsidizing medical services through medicare would make medical services available to a large percentage of the population, who otherwise could not afford them and it would drive a wedge between the price received by providers and the price perceived by consumers. Medicare is the United States' health insurance for older people and those with disabilities.

ROI -14.6667%

Explanation:

60 beginning

2.2 dividends

49 ending

Return on Investment: result/investment

result: dividend yield + capital gains

dividends 2.2 gain

ending - beginning = capital gain/loss

49 - 60 = -11 loss

2.2 -11 = -8.8 loss

-8.8/60 = -14.6666666%

Our investment decrease by \$8.8 the result was -14.6667%
