the sole proprietor is personally liable for damages the injured woman is awarded by the courts.
In a sole proprietorship, the owner is personally liable for any damages awarded by the court in the event of a lawsuit. They are not typically covered by small business insurance, and their liability is not limited.
Based on the question, the owner in a sole proprietorship is personally liable for any damages that are awarded by the court. This means that if a customer slipped and fell in her store and sued the owner, the sole proprietor- the business owner, would be held responsible for paying any damages. The liability of the sole proprietor emanates from the fact that in this type of business entity, there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. This means all the debts and liabilities of the business are considered to be those of the owner. Thus, under normal circumstances, a sole proprietor is not covered by a Small Business Administration insurance policy, and their liability is not limited to a small fraction of the damages.

In art class students are mixing blue and red paint to make purple paint. Cai mixes 5 cups of blue paint and 6 cups of red paint. Casho mixes 2 cups of blue paint and 3 cups of red paint. Use Cai and Casho’s percent of blue paint to determine whose purple paint will be bluer.
Cai's Would Be Bluer
Since 2/5 is 40% and 5/11 is 45% Cai's would be bluer!
Cai's paint will be bluer because she used a higher percentage of blue paint (45.45%) in her mix compared to Casho who used 40% blue paint.
In order to determine whose paint mix will be bluer, we must compare the ratio of blue to red paint in each student's mix. Cai mixes 5 cups of blue and 6 cups of red paint. Casho mixes 2 cups of blue and 3 cups of red paint. We find the percentage of blue paint by dividing the amount of blue paint by the total amount of paint and then multiplying by 100. For Cai, it would be (5 / (5 + 6)) * 100 = 45.45% blue. For Casho, it would be (2 / (2 + 3)) * 100 = 40% blue. Thus, Cai's purple paint will be bluer because it has a higher percentage of blue paint.
