b. She will be creative.
c. She will be nervous, depressed, and insecure.
d. She will be easily distracted.
e. She will perform better in jobs that require significant interpersonal interaction.


Answer 1

Answer: d. She will be easily distracted.


When one is said to be conscientious, it means that they are very dedicated to their duty. They value their duty and they want to do it well. A conscientious person is focused on their duty with the aim of fulfilling it to the best of their ability and so are reliable and trustworthy.

If a person is said to be low in conscientiousness, it means that they do not value their duty as well as they should and like Jane Simpson can get easily distracted from said duty.

Pinewood Corp. used to have a strict hierarchical structure. Information was only given to those who required it. The new CEO, however, set up a flat organizational structure.

He also assigned mentors to new employees to help them in their jobs and enable them to perform better. Pinewood Corp. can now be described as a(n) ________ organization.



The correct answer is boundaryless.


A boundaryless organization is an association in which management has managed to eliminate the barriers between internal levels, work functions and departments, as well as reduce external barriers between the association and those with whom it works. The development of a business in an organization without limits could include the creation of a more horizontal management structure, the promotion of interdepartmental projects and the empowerment of staff members.

Presented below are two independent situations. 1. On January 1, 2017, Monty Company issued $216,000 of 8%, 10-year bonds at par. Interest is payable quarterly on April 1, July 1, October 1, and January 1. 2. On June 1, 2017, Flounder Company issued $168,000 of 12%, 10-year bonds dated January 1 at par plus accrued interest. Interest is payable semiannually on July 1 and January 1. For each of these two independent situations, prepare journal entries to record the following. (If no entry is required, select "No Entry" for the account titles and enter 0 for the amounts. Credit account titles are automatically indented when amount is entered. Do not indent manually.) (a) The issuance of the bonds. (b) The payment of interest on July 1. (c) The accrual of interest on December 31.




cash 216,000

  bond payable 216,000

interest expense 4,320

   cash                               4,320

interest expense 4,320

   interest payable            4,320


cash 178,080

       bond payable 168,000

     interest payable 10,080

interest payable   10,080

   cash                              10,080

interest expense 10,080

   interest payable           10,080



issuance will receive the same amount as face value, as it was issued at par

July 1st payment: 216,000 x 8%/4 = 4,320

we divide by 4 as the payment are quarterly and there are 4 quarter per year

we recognize this interest expense and pay it.

accrued interest at December 31th:

we will recognize the interest accrued form october 1st to december 31th

we put a payable account as there is no cash payment


issuance will receive the same amount as face value, and the interest accrued from Jan 1st to June 30th as the bonds were issued with delay

168,00 x 12%/2 = 10,080 interest payable

(the payment are semiannually so we split the rate in two)

The sum of these payable and the face value will be the cash proceeds to Flounder

july 1st payment

we "pay" the interest agains the payable account

accrued interest at December 31th:

168,00 x 12%/2 = 10,080 interest expense

we will recognize the nterest accrued form July 1st to december 31th

we put a payable account as there is no cash payment

Dimitrov Corporation, a company that produces and sells a single product, has provided its contribution format income statement for July.Sales (6,800 units) $401,200
Variable expenses 265,200

Contribution margin 136,000
Fixed expenses 103,500
Net operating income $32,500

If the company sells 6,700 units, its net operating income should be closest to:

a. $31,979
b. $32,500
c. $28,000
d. $30,500



Option (d) is correct.


Contribution margin per unit:

= Contribution margin ÷ No. of units sold

= 136,000 ÷ 6,800

= $20 per unit

If the company sells 6,700 units, then

Net operating income:

= Contribution margin - Fixed expenses

= (6,700 units × $20 per unit) - $103,500

= $134,000 - $103,500

= $30,500

Therefore, the net operating income of this company is closest to $30,500.

On January 1, 2011, Deuce Inc. acquired 15% of Wiz Co.'s outstanding common stock for $62,400 and categorized the investment as an available-for-sale security. Wiz earned net income of $96,000 in 2011 and paid dividends of $36,000. On January 1, 2012, Deuce bought an additional 10% of Wiz for $54,000. This second purchase gave Deuce the ability to significantly influence the decision making of Wiz. During 2012, Wiz earned $120,000 and paid $48,000 in dividends. As of December 31, 2012, Wiz reported a net book value of $468,000. For both purchases, Deuce concluded that Wiz Co.'s book values approximated fair values and attributed any excess cost to goodwill. What amount of equity income should Deuce have reported for 2012?





Calculation for the amount of equity income to reported

Using this formula

Equity income=[(Amount earned in 2012×(Outstanding common stock percentage +Additional percentage of Wiz)]

Let plug in the formula

Equity income = [($120,000 ×(15%+ 10%)]

Equity income = ($120,000 ×25%)

Equity income= $30,000

Therefore the amount of equity income to reported for 2012 will be $30,000

A firm's dividend payments less any net new equity raised is referred to as the firm’s:a. operating cash flow.b. capital spending.c. net working capital.d. cash flow from creditors.e. cash flow to stockholders.



The correct answer is letter "E": cash flow to stockholders.


The cash flow to stockholders is the amount of money a firm pays to its debtholders and stockholders. It is calculating by subtracting the dividends paid minus new equity -if raised any. The Board of Directors determines the amount and the period to be considered for the dividends and if they are paid from the organization's current earnings or the reserve revenues.
