1. One challenge you face on a daily basis in business is calculating decision-making information when you know only part of the information. You must know how much you need to determine how changes in sales will affect the bottom line. If you know your fixed costs (FC), your variable costs per unit (VCu), your price per unit (P), and the number of units (U) sold, you can use a mathematical equation to determine your net income (NI). In this case the formula is:

NI = [U * (P-VCu)] - FC

Find another problem a classmate has not already used that you may need to solve in business, as well as the mathematical formula. What is the formula, and what are the variables? Why do you need to use this shorthand so much in business?

2. Using the formula NI = [U * (P-VCu)] - FC, what is the order in which you need to do the calculation? Why does it matter?

3. In management, how important is it that you learn to use mathematics to solve problems? How valuable is an MBA degree without the ability to identify the cost of a company's capital, its return on investment, gross margin percentage, break-even point, or what percent of a population would be willing to buy its product?

Another problem that businesses may use is called the Break Even Analysis. This is the point where the sales and the costs equal to zero, or they break even. After the break-even point is where the profits begin. It is important to use because it lets you know how much you will need to sell before you receive profit and after you figure it out, you can find ways to lower ...

Solution Summary

The records of Midwestern University show that in one semester, 38% of the students failed mathematics, 27% of the students failed physics, and 9% of the students failed mathematics and physics. A student is selected at random.
a.) If a student failed physics, what is the probability that he or she failed mathematics?
b.)

C.W. Churchman once said that "mathematics tends to lull the unsuspecting into believing that he who thinks elaborately thinks well." Do you think that the best QA models are the ones that are most elaborate and complex mathematically? Why or why not? (LO 1, 5) In the second part of the activity, please review your peer's posts

My school required me to pick a class outside of my field of study in Information Security and halfway through, I realize I mad a poor choice. The first half of the class was Ohms Law and a few other simple formulas and wasn't that bad.
