You are shipwrecked on a tropical island and you built
yourself a hut at the edge of the beach. At high tide the waterline
is 10feet from your hut. At low tide the waterline is 30 feet from
your hut. The time between high tides is 12 hours. Find the
trigonometric equation that gives the distance the waterline is
from your hut as function of of time in hours. Assume time zero is
at high tide.

let our trigonometric function is a sine function

which is in the form of

.................(1)

.

The time between high tides is 12 so the periodicity of the function is T=12

periodicity is given by

.

At high tide, the waterline is 10feet from your hut. At low tide, the waterline is 30 feet from your hut.

the difference is

.

amplitude is

.

put all values in equation 1

...................(2)

we have assumed that time zero is at high tide.

so y(0)=10 feet

.................put in equation 2

Peter and Laura are stranded on a tropical island. To feed
themselves each day, they can either catch fish or collect
coconuts. In one day, Laura can collect 120 coconuts or catch 60
fish, while in one day, Peter can collect 75 coconuts, or catch 50
fish.
Determine who has each of the following, and explain why:
a. absolute advantage in collecting coconuts
b. absolute advantage in fishing
c. comparative advantage in collecting coconuts
d. comparative advantage in fishing
e....

Chuck and Crusoe are trapped on opposite sides of a tropical
island. They each have 60 units of labor that they can spend on one
of two activities: building shelters or fishing. Chuck can produce
1 unit of shelter with 5 units of labor, and can produce 2 units of
fish with 1 unit of labor. Crusoe can produce 1 unit of shelter
with 3 units of labor, and can produce 4 units of fish with 1 unit
of labor....

On a remote tropical island paradise there are only two
consumers—Robinson and Friday. A primary consumption product in
this economy is coconuts, but Robinson and Friday have different
individual demands. Robinson is quite fond of coconuts,
particularly for the milk; his demand function is:
qR =60−3P
where P is the price of coconuts (measured in terms of conch
shells, the primary cur-
rency). Friday does not like coconuts as much as Robinson; his
demand function is:qF =30−2P.

Consider a small tropical island
nation with the usual swaying palms and sandy beaches.It has a
healthy, literate population, and the population growth is stable
but its economy has been stagnant for several decades.Until
recently, a dictator controlled nearly every aspect of the economy
(and rather unsuccessfully).Since his death, the country plans to
create a parliamentary system of government.There is arable land
for farming with more than adequate output for the population.The
island has no known quantities of coal, oil,...

A new subdivision was recently built within the city limits of
Providence, Rhode Island. The City Government has taken on the
project of building and installing streetlights and benches within
the subdivision. The City Government will issue five-year bonds in
order to finance the project. According to the city’s laws and
homeowner’s agreement, the provision of lighting the sidewalks is
the responsibility of the homeowners. An excerpt from the bond
agreement is provided below:
The aforementioned bonds are issued and...

Pizza Hut is facing stiff competition in it pizza delivery
service, and you are the owner who is particularly concerned about
being able to provide call-in customers with a guarantee as to how
quickly their pizza would arrive. You have collected a month’s
worth of data that included travel time (y)/
minute and delivery distance (x)/miles.
You want to know if you can use delivery distance to predict travel
time. You run regression on excel, and get the following output....

Imagine yourself preparing to open a new restaurant. While you
have never owned a restaurant yourself, you have over twenty years
of experience in the industry, starting as a host(ess) and working
up to a manager. You have approached many banks for loans, and have
been turned down by all, since the restaurant business is very
risky. What avenues might you pursue to gain the financing you
need? For example, think outside of the box when it comes to
considering...

Your new venture is no longer new, hut growing and rather rapidly.
You are the CEO and currently own 55% of the outstanding shares.
What is your preferred way to raise funding to support your rapid
growth and why? What is the potential reward for your decision?
What is the downside? Please provide an example of a company that
has gone public in the recent past 2-4 years. Did it benefit or
hurt them?
