The advertisements that appear above the organic search results are called pay-per-click ads. This is a form of online advertising where advertisers pay a fee for each click on their ad.
The advertisements that appear above the organic search results when you're searching for the details of a refrigerator are referred to as pay-per-click ads (option A). These are a type of online advertising where the advertiser pays a fee each time their ad is clicked by a user. The search engine makes use of this advertising model for its ads, which are strategically placed to attract potential buyers.

A company advertises that its products are environmentally friendly in order to sell to climate-conscious consumers at a higher price. What is this practice called?
Greenwashing is the process of giving out a false impression or misleading the public about how the product of a company are more environmentally friendly. Companies have used greenwashing in commercials and press releases emphasizing their pollution minimization efforts and clean energy but in reality, the firm may not have a genuine commitment to environmental friendliness. Companies that make such claims are embroiled in greenwashing.
For example, a company might claim that their goods are made from recycled materials and this may be false. This is greenwashing.
The Silver Corporation uses a predetermined overhead rate to apply manufacturing overhead to jobs. The predetermined overhead rate is based on labor cost in Department A and on machine-hours in Department B. At the beginning of the year, the Corporation made the following estimates: Department A Department B Direct labor cost $ 60,000 $ 40,000 Manufacturing overhead $ 90,000 $ 45,000 Direct labor-hours 6,000 9,000 Machine-hours 2,000 15,000 What predetermined overhead rates would be used in Department A and Department B, respectively?
Instructions are below.
Giving the following information:
Direct labor cost= $60,000
Manufacturing overhead= $90,000
Manufacturing overhead= $45,000
To calculate the predetermined manufacturing overhead rate we need to use the following formula:
Predetermined manufacturing overhead rate= total estimated overhead costs for the period/ total amount of allocation base
Predetermined manufacturing overhead rate= $1.5 per direct labor dollar
Predetermined manufacturing overhead rate= 45,000/2,000= $22.4 per machine-hour
Gourd Supermarkets has an extensive training program for all new employees and then has all employees spend a day in customer service and workplace safety training each year.Required: What contract is it: a. old social b. new social?
Old social contract
Old social contract is a type of contract that emphasises the long term commitment between the employer and the employee and stable conditions are defined for both parties.
New social contract on the other hand is one that is short term, and there is little commitment to the contract from both parties.
In the given scenario Gourd Supermarkets provides extensive training program for all new employees. They then spend a day in customer service and workplace safety training each year.
This shows a long term commitment, so it is a form of old social contract.
Answer: a. Old social contract
Explanation: this is an old social contract which is defined as one between an employee and the employer (organisation, business, company or firm) where the employee contributes his/her ability, education, loyalty, and commitment to the organization, and expect wages and benefits, work, advancement, and training in return. Thus, the old social contract emphasizes on long-term commitments with stable conditions between employers and employees. The old social contract is in direct contrast with the new social contract which exists between an employee and an organization wherein the employee takes personal responsibility for employability and the employer gives challenging assignments, lateral career moves, and creative development opportunities.
George has been selling 5,000 T-shirts per month for $8.50. When he increased the price to $9.50, he sold only 4,000 T-shirts. Which of the following best approximates the price elasticity of demand? -2.2 -1.8 -2 -2.6 Suppose George's marginal cost is $5 per shirt. Before the price change, George's initial price markup over marginal cost was approximately . George's desired markup is . Since George's initial markup, or actual margin, was than his desired margin, raising the price was .
Answer: George's initial price markup over marginal cost was approximately 41.2% George's desired markup is 45% Since George's initial markup, or actual margin, was Less than his desired margin, raising the price was profitable
a) Price Elasticity of Demand = [(Q1-Q2)/(Q1+Q2)] / [(P1-P2)/(P1+P2)]
C) George's desired margin = 1/absolute value of price elasticity = 1/ 2.2= 0.45= 45%
D)Since George's initial markup or actual margin was less than his desired margin, raising the price is profitable.
This is because When the markup is lower than the margin, business is running on a loss, so it is nessesary to increase price.
The price elasticity of demand for George's T-shirts is approximately -1.7, indicating that demand is elastic. The initial markup over the cost price was 70%, but the question doesn't specify the desired markup or if raising the price satisfied that margin.
The price elasticity of demand measures how sensitive the quantity demanded is to a price change. It's calculated as the percentage change in quantity demanded divided by the percentage change in price. In George's case:
Initial quantity: 5000 T-shirts
New quantity: 4000 T-shirts
Initial price: $8.50
New price: $9.50
So, the percentage change in quantity = (4000-5000)/5000 = -20% and percentage change in price = ($9.50-$8.50)/$8.50 = 11.76%. Therefore, price elasticity of demand = -20%/11.76% = -1.7 (approx.). This indicates that the demand is elastic, meaning quantity demanded is sensitive to price changes.
Regarding the price markup, this is the percentage increase over the cost price. The initial markup = ($8.50-$5)/$5 = 70%. The question didn't specify the desired markup, or if raising the price satisfied the desired margin.
