    Calculate the EOQ if the company is expecting to sell 5,000 units, has a $2 per unit carrying cost, and has a cost of $10 per order. Why should you not use the EOQ without additional consideration in "real life" situations?

    If a company is considering buying a new machine for $100,000 that should reduce costs by $80,000 in one year and $50,000 in second year, should they do it if they have a cost of capital of 10%?

    A company faces a tax rate of 40% with their division in NZ and a tax rate of 25% in the US. They make and sell 1,000 units. It costs $125 per unit to produce the units in NZ and they can sell them for $300 each in the US.
