# Christine and Paul are deciding how to split their time between writing music and lyrics for their new album. Their PPFs for 72 h of work are shown. Christine and Paul have to write music for 8 songs and lyrics for 12 songs (4 songs already have music). When they are done, they can go to a private island and relax from all their hard work. It is possible that they will use more than 72 h. Once they start writing lyrics and music, assuming their hired help packs for them and their plane is waiting outside their door, in how many hours can they board the plane to their relaxing island getaway?

Each of them is going to work for 96 hours or 4 days.

• Paul will write the music for 8 songs.
• Christine will write the lyrics for 12 songs.

Explanation:

PPFs (72 hours)                    Music (M)               Lyrics (L)

Christine                                       8                             9

Paul                                              6                              4

Christine can write the music the one song in 9 hours and the lyrics in 8 hours.

Paul can write the music the one song in 12 hours and the lyrics in 18 hours.

Paul's opportunity cost of music per lyrics = 12/18 = 2/3, and the opportunity cost of lyrics per music = 6/4 = 3/2

Christine's opportunity cost of lyrics per music = 8/9, and the opportunity cost of music per lyrics = 9/8

Paul should specialize in writing music because his opportunity cost is lower, it will take him 12 x 8 = 96 hours to write down the music for 8 songs.

Christine should be in charge of writing lyrics (lower opportunity cost), it will take her 8 x 12 = 96 hours.

Each of them is going to work for 96 hours or 4 days.

• Paul will write the music for 8 songs.
• Christine will write the lyrics for 12 songs.

In one of the cases in the textbook, Larry Gunter was a shipping clerk for a computer company that manufactured microprocessor chips. After learning that the chips were valuable, he stole three boxes and sold them to his girlfriend's father. Since the scheme worked so well the first time, he continued stealing and selling the chips, even letting a co-worker in on the scheme. How was the theft discovered? a. A security guard found the chips in a routine check of his work cart
b. An inventory manager filling an order noticed that many of the chips were missing
c. The auditors found the shortage when they conducted the annual inventory event
d. His co-worker notified the loss prevention department in exchange for a cash reward

B) An inventory manager filling an order noticed that many of the chips were missing

Explanation:

The text book case explained that Larry was discovered by the inventory manager, but what really is troubling is not that he was able to steal the chips since bad things can happen, but that they happened several times. This means that the company's controls are extremely deficient and it wasn't so difficult to bypass them. If the inventory manager didn't discover Larry's crimes, then an auditor should have discover them. But that is no excuse, if the company knows that the chips are very valuable they should enforce stricter controls to prevent future incidents.

Solar Products purchased a machine for \$39,000 on July 1, 2012. The company intends to depreciate it over 4 years using the double-declining balance method. Salvage value is \$3,000. Depreciation for 2013 is :
a. \$19,500b. \$9,750c. \$14,625d. \$9,000

Option (c) is correct.

Explanation:

Given that,

Cost of machine = \$39,000

Depreciation years = 4

Salvage value = \$3,000

Straight line rate:

= (100 ÷ 4)%

= 25%

Double declining rate:

= (2 × Straight line rate)

= (2 × 25)%

= 50%

Depreciation for year 2012:

= Cost of machine × Double declining rate × Time period

= \$39,000 × 50% × 6/12

= \$9,750

Depreciation for 2013:

= (cost of machine - Depreciation for year 2012) × Double declining rate

= (39,000 - \$9,750) × 50%

= \$14,625

pproximately how much should be accumulated by the beginning of retirement to provide a \$2,500 monthly check that will last for 25 years, during which time the fund will earn 6% interest with monthly compounding?

\$388,017.16

Explanation:

The amount that shall be accumulated at the beginning of retirement to provide a \$2,500 for the period of 25 years shall be determined through the present value of annuity formula which is mentioned below:

Amount that should be accumulated=R[(1-(1+i)^-n)/i]

In the given question

R=monthly check that will be received=\$2,500

n=number of months during which monthly checks will be  received=25*12=300

i=interest rate compounded monthly=6/12=0.50%

Amount that should be accumulated=2500[(1-(1+0.50%)^-300)/0.50%]

=\$388,017.16
