Your friend, Suzie Whitson, has designed a new type of outdoor toy that helps children learn basic concepts such as colors, numbers, and shapes. Suzie’s product will target two groups: day care centers in warm climates and home school programs. Her company is Jiffy Jet and costs for last month follow: Factory rent $ 3,130 Company advertising 1,060 Wages paid to assembly workers 30,500 Depreciation for salespersons’ vehicles 2,200 Screws 535 Utilities for factory 845 Assembly supervisor’s salary 3,580 Sandpaper 185 President’s salary 5,180 Plastic tubing 4,050 Paint 285 Sales commissions 1,350 Factory insurance 1,170 Depreciation on cutting machines 2,000 Wages paid to painters 7,550 Assume that Suzie Whitson has decided to begin production of her outdoor children’s toy. Required: 1 and 2. Identify each of the preceding costs as either a product or a period cost. If the cost is a product cost, decide whether it is for direct materials (DM), direct labor (DL), or manufacturing overhead (MOH) and also identify each of the preceding costs as variable or fixed cost
Depreciation on cutting machines- 2,000- Product - MOH - Fixed
Wages paid to painters -7,550- Product - DL - Variable
Direct materials are those materials and supplies that are consumed during the manufacture of a product, and which are directly identified with that product.
Direct labor is production or services labor that is assigned to a specific product, cost center, or work order.
Manufacturing overhead refers to indirect factory-related costs that are incurred when a product is manufactured.
Period costs are not directly tied to the production process. Overhead or sales, general, and administrative costs are considered period costs. SG&A includes costs of the corporate office, selling, marketing, and the overall administration of company business.
Product costs are the direct costs involved in producing a product. A manufacturer would have production costs that include- Direct labor, Raw materials, Manufacturing supplies, Overhead that's directly tied to the production facility such as electricity.
Variable cost is a corporate expense that changes in proportion to production output.
Fixed cost is a cost that does not change with an increase or decrease in the number of goods or services produced or sold.
To know more about the variable costs, and the fixed cost, refer to the link below:

Able, Baker, and Charlie are the only three stocks in an index. The stocks sell for $93, $351, and $74, respectively. If Baker undergoes a 2-for-1 stock split, what is the new divisor for the price-weighted index?
Given that :
Index have three stocks and the prices of those sticks are $93, $351, and $74, respectively. Usually what stock split does is to increase he number of share outstanding without any interference with the original total amount of money.
So if Baker ( the company B ) undergoes 2:1 split stock, it typically implies that one share will be divided by two shares.
New divisor for price - weighted index is given by the formula:
Price weighted index =
Price of stock B before stock split is = $351
To determine the new stock B after stock split; we have
Price weighted index₀ =
The new divisor for the price weighted index is as follows;
Price weighted index =
Price weighted index =
Price weighted index = 1.98359
Thus, the new divisor for the price weighted index = 1.98359
Answer:The New Divisor for the price weighted index = 4.29 (rounded off to two decimals)
Able stock = $93
Baker = $351
Charlie = $74
Price Weighted Index Formula = sum of company share prices/number of companies
Price Weighted Index Formula = ($93 + $351 + $74)/5
Price Weighted Index = $425/5 = $85
The Price Weighted index before share split = $85 and the divisor is 5
Calculating the New Divisor for the Price weighted index
Let The new divisor for the price weighted index be α
Price of Barker stock after sare split = $351 x 1/2 = $175.5
The New Divisor for the price weighted index = 4.29 (rounded off to two decimals)
1. The roles of money Antonio just graduated from college and is now in the market for a new car. He has saved up $4,000 for a down payment. He's deciding between a Super and a Duper. The Super is priced at $23,599, and the Duper is priced at $18,999. After agonizing over the decision, he decides to buy the Duper. He writes the dealership a check for $4,000 and takes out a loan for the remainder of the purchase price.
Antonio used the value of money as a unit of account to compare the value of the two cars namely Super and Duper and come to the conclusion that Duper was cheaper to Super
Antonio saved $ 4000 in his checking account which he gave to the seller. This represent money's role as a store of value
Antonio write a check of the money he saved to the seller and the seller accepted it and gave him the car which fulfill the role of money as a medium of exchange.

Parent company X and subsidiary company Y file a calendar year consolidated federal income tax return. Company X reported a $120,000 tax loss, which included a $10,000 dividend from Y. Company Y reported $140,000 of taxable income, which included $30,000 of dividends received from less than 20% owned stock investments. Neither company took into account any applicable dividends received deduction. What is the group's consolidated tax loss for the year
The adjusted tax loss of the group is $11000
Find detailed computation in the attached spreadsheet.
The the tax loss of the of parent company X needs to be adjusted for inter-company dividends of $10000.By eliminating the dividends,the loss becomes $130,000.
On other hand,the profit of company Y needs to be adjusted as well for 70% dividends-received deduction,by eliminating 70% of $30000 dividends received, which amounts to $21000.
By deducting the $21000 from $140000 taxable income,taxable income drops to $119000.
On aggregation, the adjusted tax loss of parent and adjusted taxable income of subsidiary gives $11000 tax loss.
Seller in Georgia and buyer in the Netherlands enter into a contract for the sale of goods, CIF port of Amsterdam. The seller refused to ship. The buyer brings an action for damages. In the US, a court would probably rule
damages should be measured by the difference between the contract price and the market price of the goods at the port of shipment
Explanation: Because the contract has already been initiated and was defaulted by the seller. The Judge would ask him to pay for damages. And this will be measured by subtracting the contract price of the goods from the market price. I.e the price the goods would gave been sold and the price the seller accepted to sell to the buyer according to the contract they signed.
