Answer:

In long-run competitive equilibrium SRATC = LRATC, because if SRATC > LRATC (at the quantity of output at which MR = MC) firms would have an incentive to change their plant size to produce their current output.

Option: A

Explanation:

In perfect competition, balance is the stage where consumer demands are equal to market supply. In the short term demand can impact stability. In the long run both a product's demand and supply would influence the balance in perfect competition.

The increase in the quantity of output generated is the SRTC i.e short-run total cost and LRTC i.e long-run total cost scales because generating more output needs more labor utilization for both the short and long runs, and since, in the long run, generating more output implies using more of the physical resource supply; and by using more of either supply means incurring more production costs.

Corny and Sweet grows and sells sweet corn at its roadside produce stand. The selling price per dozen is $4.75, variable costs are $2.00 per dozen, and total fixed costs are $1100.00. How many dozens of ears of corn must Corny and Sweet sell to breakeven? (Round your final answer to the nearest unit amount.)

Answers

Answer:

Selling price = $4.75

Variable costs= $2.00

Contribution margin ratio = contribution margin / sale

= ($4.75 - $2.00) / $4.75 = 57.8%

Break even sale in dollars = fixed costs / contribution margin ratio

= $1100 / 57.8% = $1903

Breakeven Sales = $1903

On January 1, 2021, Tropical Paradise borrows $46,000 by agreeing to a 6%, five-year note with the bank. The funds will be used to purchase a new BMW convertible for use in promoting resort properties to potential customers. Loan payments of $889.31 are due at the end of each month with the first installment due on January 31, 2021. Required:
Record the issuance of the installment note payable and the first two monthly payments.

Answers

Issuance: Installment Note Payable $46,000; First two payments: Interest Expense $230.00, Installment Note Payable $659.31 each month.

On January 1, 2021, Tropical Paradise records the issuance of a 6%, five-year installment note payable with a principal amount of $46,000. This note is obtained from the bank to finance the purchase of a BMW convertible for promotional purposes related to resort properties. The terms of the loan stipulate monthly payments of $889.31, with the first installment due on January 31, 2021.

For the first two monthly payments:

1. The Interest Expense is calculated based on the outstanding balance of the loan and the interest rate. In the first month, the interest is $46,000 * 6% / 12 = $230.00.

2. The remaining amount of the monthly payment is applied to reduce the principal, recorded as a repayment of the Installment Note Payable. The principal repayment is $889.31 - $230.00 = $659.31.

This process repeats in the second month, with the interest recalculated based on the remaining balance, and the remaining amount again applied to reduce the principal. These entries reflect the gradual repayment of both interest and principal over the life of the loan.

Working note :-

First installment interest expenses

= $46,000 × 6% × 1 month ÷ 12 month

= $230

Second installment interest expenses

= ($46,000 - $659.31) × 6% × 1 month ÷ 12 month

= $45,340.68 × 6% × 1 ÷ 12

= $226.70

In the month of June, a department had 8000 units in beginning work in process that were 70% complete. During June, 32000 units were transferred into production from another department. At the end of June there were 4000 units in ending work in process that were 40% complete. Materials are added at the beginning of the process, while conversion costs are incurred uniformly throughout the process (Please show work)A. How many units were transfered out of the process in june________B.The equivalent units of production for materials in June were _______C. The equivalent units of production for conversion costs for June were_______

Answers

Answer:

A. 36,000 units

B. 40,000 units

C. 32,800 units.

Explanation:

A. To calculate units transferred out we add beginning work in process to units transferred during the period and subtract the ending work in process units.

8,000 + 32,000 - 4,000 = 36,000

Units transferred out of process in June = 36,000

B. The equivalent units of production for materials will be ;

8,000 + 32,000 = 40,000.

C. The equivalent units of production for Conversion costs will be:

(8000 * 30%) + 32000 - (4000 * 40%) = 32,800.
