Cane Company manufactures two products called Alpha and Beta that sell for $240 and $162, respectively. Each product uses only one type of raw material that costs $5 per pound. The company has the capacity to annually produce 131,000 units of each product. Its unit costs for each product at this level of activity are given below: 
Alpha  Beta  
Direct materials  $  35  $  15  
Direct labor  48  23  
Variable manufacturing overhead  27  25  
Traceable fixed manufacturing overhead  35  38  
Variable selling expenses  32  28  
Common fixed expenses  35  30  
Total cost per unit  $  212  $  159  
The company considers its traceable fixed manufacturing overhead to be avoidable, whereas its common fixed expenses are deemed unavoidable and have been allocated to products based on sales dollars. 
6. 
Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 110,000 Betas per year. If Cane discontinues the Beta product line, how much will profits increase or decrease?

Consider a particle in an infinite square well, but instead of having the well from 0 to L as we have done in the past, it is now centered at 0 and the walls are at x = −L/2 and x = L/2.
(a) Draw the first four energy eigenstates of this well.
(b) Write the eigenfunctions for each of these eigenstates.
(c) What are the energy eigenvalues for this system?
(d) Can you find a general expression for the energy eigenstates for this well? (Hint: you should have a different form for even and odd solutions) (e) If instead, the well were from x = −L to x = L, how would these expressions change? Would the energy eigenvalues change? (And if so, how?)

AFN equation Broussard Skateboard's sales are expected to increase by 25% from $7.6 million in 2016 to $9.50 million in 2017. Its assets totaled $3 million at the end of 2016. Broussard is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2016, current liabilities were $1.4 million, consisting of $450,000 of accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $450,000 of accruals. The aftertax profit margin is forecasted to be 6%, and the forecasted payout ratio is 70%. Use the AFN equation to forecast Broussard's additional funds needed for the coming year. Round your answer to the nearest dollar. Do not round intermediate calculations

A consumer preference study compares the effects of three different bottle designs (A, B, and C) on sales of a popular fabric softener. A completely randomized design is employed. Specifically, 15 supermarkets of equal sales potential are selected, and 5 of these supermarkets are randomly assigned to each bottle design. The number of bottles sold in 24 hours at each supermarket is recorded. The data obtained are displayed in the following table.

One year ago, your company purchased a machine used in manufacturing for
$ 115,000
You have learned that a new machine is available that offers many advantages and you can purchase it for
$ 160,000
today. It will be depreciated on a straightline basis over 10 years and has no salvage value. You expect that the new machine will produce a gross margin (revenues minus operating expenses other than depreciation) of
$ 50,000
per year for the next 10 years. The current machine is expected to produce a gross margin of
$ 25,000
per year. The current machine is being depreciated on a straightline basis over a useful life of 11 years, and has no salvage value, so depreciation expense for the current machine is
$10,455
per year. The market value today of the current machine is
$45,000.
Your company's tax rate is

The township has conducted a survey of its 100 residents to determine their willingness to pay for investments to improve groundwater quality. It was found that all residents have identical preferences. The marginal willingness to pay for water quality by each individual is estimated to be: MWTP = 25  5Q, where MWTP stands for marginal willingness to pay in dollars and Q is a measure of water quality. The marginal cost of water quality is estimated to be MC = 750Q, where MC is in dollars.
a) What is the equation for the aggregate MWTP for water quality for Cremona?
b) What is the efficient quality of water quality? Briefly explain why is this considered the efficient quantity?
c) Currently Q =0. What is the total benefit to households of moving from Q=0 to the efficient level of water quality? Describe your calculations.
d) What is the total cost of supplying the efficient level of water quality? Describe your calculations.
e) What is the net economic surplus from supplying the efficient level of water quality?
f) What is the efficient price that should be charged to each of the 100 rural residents for each unit of improved water quality? Briefly explain your logic.
