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

We had to use a business formula that is useful for business owners and state it's variables. We also had to state the order of operations in a given formula. This solution is 287 words with one APA reference.

A study was taken at a certain university to determine what relationship, if any, exists between mathematics ability and interest in mathematics. The ability and interest for 150 students were determined, and the results are presented in the following table:
INTEREST
Ability Low Average High Total
Low 40 8 12

3. At a certain university, 30% of the students major in mathematics. Of the students majoring in mathematics, 60% are males. Of all the students at the university, 70% are males.
a. What is the probability that a student selected at random in the university is male and majors in mathematics?
b. What is the probability that a

An AAA bond yielding a 10% return and a BB bond yielding a 15% return. Invest as much in AAA bond as in the BB bond, at least $5000 in the AAA bond and no more than $8000 in the BB bond. How much should she invest in each to maximize her return.

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.)

I have attached two problems (see attachment); I always have problems in solving the parts highlighted in red- part a and d. May I please have a detailed step-by-step method of finding the angle, area, and the Cartesian equation. On the last part, which is (d), I am always getting the signs wrong, so please show me the best meth
