Your parents are giving you $205 a month for 4 years while you are in college. At an interest rate of .48 percent per month, what are these payments worth to you when you first start college ### Answers Answer:$8,770.00

Explanation:

In this question we use the present value formula i.e shown in the attachment below:

Data provided in the question

Future value = $0 Rate of interest = 0.48% NPER = 4 years × 12 months = 48 months PMT =$205

The formula is shown below:

= -PV(Rate;NPER;PMT;FV;type)

So, after solving this, the answer would be $8,770.00 Harwinton, Inc. anticipates sales of 56,000 units, 54,000 units, 57,000 units and 56,000 units in July, August, September and October, respectively. Company policy is to maintain an ending finished-goods inventory equal to 50% of the following month's sales. On the basis of this information, how many units would the company plan to produce in September? ### Answers Answer: The correct answer is 56,500 units. Explanation: According to the scenario, the computation of the given data are as follows: Sales for September = 57,000 units As Beginning and ending inventory should be 50% of following month sales So, Beginning inventory = 57,000 × 50% = 28,500 And Ending inventory = 56,000 × 50% = 28,000 So, we can calculate the units to be produce in September by using following formula: Units produce in September = Sales for September + Ending inventory - Beginning inventory By putting the value, we get = 57,000 + 28,000 - 28,500 = 56,500 units 9.5 Capital Healthplans Inc. is evaluating two different methods for providing home health services to its members. Both methods involve contracting out for services, and the health outcomes and revenues are not affected by the method chosen. Therefore, the net cash flows for the decision are all outflows. Here are the projected flows:Year Method A Method B0 (300,000) (120,000)1 (66,000) (96,000)2 (66,000) (96,000)3 (66,000) (96,000)4 (66,000) (96,000)5 (66,000) (96,000)a. What is each alternative’s IRR? b. If the opportunity cost of capital for both methods is 9 percent, which method should be chosen? Why? ### Answers Answer: present worth A: 513,821.51 present worth B: 431,013.1 We should choose option B as the present worth is lower. the IRR cannot be calculated when all teh cashflow are negative as it the rate which makes the present value equal to zero. that means it will discount either the negative or postive subsequent cashflow to match an initial of the opposite sign. Explanation: For the intenal rate of return we must look for which rate makes the cost equal to zero. For the opportunity cost, we solve for the present value of eahc discounted at the given rate of 9% Method A discount rate 0.09 # Cashflow Discounted 0 300000 300000 1 66000 60550.46 2 66000 55550.88 3 66000 50964.11 4 66000 46756.06 NPV 513821.51 Method B # Cashflow Discounted 0 120000 120000 1 96000 88073.39 2 96000 80801.28 3 96000 74129.61 4 96000 68008.82 NPV 431013.1 Suppose the farm equipment manufacturer from the previous question was able to charge$30,000 per tractor, and produces and sells 2,000 tractors per year at that price. As a reminder, the company originally spent $3 million in research and development costs. The company now spends$20 million at the beginning of each year to rent a factory, and $10,000 per tractor in materials and wages. If another manufacturer enters the market in the middle of a year and engages the company in a price war, what is the lowest price the company would be willing to charge for each tractor? ### Answers Given Information: Rent =$20,000,000

Materials and Wages = $10,000/tractor Number of tractors = 2,000 Amount spent on R&D =$3 million

Required Information:

Lowest price to sell atractor= ?

Lowest price to sell atractor= at least $20,000 Calculations & Explanation: The company needs to sell at least at a price that all of its manufacturing cost can be recovered without the profit margin. This happens at a break-even point where total revenue equals the total manufacturing cost. Total manufacturing cost = Total revenue The revenue is number of tractors multiplied by some price x Total revenue = 2,000*x Total manufacturing cost = fixed cost + Variable cost Total manufacturing cost = 20,000,000 + 2,000(10,000) Total manufacturing cost = 20,000,000 + 20,000,000 Total manufacturing cost = 40,000,000 so, Total manufacturing cost = Total revenue 40,000,000 = 2,000*x x = 40,000,000/2,000 x =$20,000

Therefore, the lowest price to sell each tractor should be atleast $20,000 Note: The R&D cost is not usually included in such scenarios because R&D cost is sunk and should not be added in these calculations. Chang Corp. has$375,000 of assets, and it uses only common equity capital (zero debt). Its sales for the last year were $550,000, and its net income was$25,000. Stockholders recently voted in a new management team that has promised to lower costs and get the return on equity up to 15%. What profit margin would the firm need in order to achieve the 15% ROE, holding everything else constant? Do not round your intermediate calculations.

10.22%

Explanation:

Data provided in the question:

Assets of Chang corp. = $375,000 Sales =$550,000

Net income = $25,000 Net Income required at 15% ROE = 15% ×$375,000

= $56,250 Therefore, The profit margin = or The profit margin = or The profit margin = 10.22% Answer: Profit Margin = 10.227% Explanation: Given: Total Assets =$375,000(Common equity)

Sales = $550,000 Net Income =$25,000

Return on equity = 15% = 15/100 = 0.15

Profit margin = ?

Computation of profit margin:

Profit margin = (Common Equity × Return on equity) / Sales

Profit Margin = ($375,000 x 0.15) /$550,000

Profit Margin = ($56,250) /$550,000

= 0.102272

Profit Margin = 10.227% (approx)
