Crane Company manufactures two products called Alpha
and Beta that sell for $135 and $95, respectively. Each product
uses only one type of raw material that costs $6 per pound. The
company has the capacity to annually produce 105,000 units of each
product. Its average cost per unit for each product at this level
of activity are given below:
Direct materials 30, 18
Direct labor 23,16
Variable manufacturing overhead 10, 8
Traceable fixed manufacturing overhead 19, 21
Variable selling expenses 15, 11
Common fixed expenses 18, 13
Total cost per unit 115, 87
The company considers its traceable fixed manufacturing overhead to
be avoidable, whereas its common fixed expenses are unavoidable and
have been allocated to products based on sales dollars.
1. Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 43,000 Betas this
year. What is the financial advantage or disadvantage of
discontinuing the Beta product line?
2. Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 63,000 Betas and
83,000 Alphas per year. If Cane discontinues the Beta product line,
its sales representatives could increase sales of Alpha by 18,000
units. What is the financial advantage or disadvantage the Beta
product line?
3. Assume that Cane expects to produce and sell 83,000 Alphas
during the current year. A supplier has offered to manufacture and
deliver 83,000 Alphas to Cane for a price of $92 per unit. What is
the financial advantage or disadvantage of buying 83,000 units from
the supplier instead of making those units?
4. Assume that Cane expects to produce and sell 53,000 Alphas
during the current year. A supplier has offered to manufacture and
deliver 53,000 Alphas to Cane for a price of $92 per unit. What is
the financial advantage or disadvantage of buying 53,000 units from
the supplier instead of making those units?

There are a number of statistics computed to measure the price level, such as the GDP deflator and the CPI. The choice of which of these measures to use depends in many cases on the specific question in which you are interested. For each of the following situations, state whether the CPI or GDP deflator is a more appropriate measure to use and explain why. 1. (5 pts) The government is interested in whether increases in defense spending are affecting the price level. 2. (5 pts)An economic consulting firm is investigating the impact on the aggregate price level of more computers and electronic technology used in production.

CASH CONVERSION CYCLE Parramore Corp has $12 million of sales, $2 million of inventories, $4 million of receivables, and $2 million of payables. Its cost of goods sold is 80% of sales, and it finances working capital with bank loans at an 9% rate. Assume 365 days in year for your calculations. Do not round intermediate steps. What is Parramore's cash conversion cycle (CCC)? Do not round
intermediate calculations. Round your answer to two decimal
places. If Parramore could lower its inventories and
receivables by 11% each and increase its payables by 11%, all
without affecting sales or cost of goods sold, what would be the
new CCC? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer
to two decimal places. How much cash would be freed up, if Parramore could
lower its inventories and receivables by 11% each and
increase its payables by 11%, all without affecting sales or cost
of goods sold? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your
answer to the nearest cent. Write out your answer completely. For
Example, 13.2 million should be entered as 13,200,000. By how much would pretax profits change, if Parramore could
lower its inventories and receivables by 11% each and
increase its payables by 11%, all without affecting sales or cost
of goods sold? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your
answer to the nearest cent. Write out your answer completely. For
Example, 13.2 million should be entered as 13,200,000.

places. What would DSO be if all customers paid on time? Round your
answer to two decimal places. How much capital would be released if Leyton could take actions
that led to ontime payments? Round your answer to the nearest

Pasha turns out 1,100 batteries a day at a cost of $7 per battery for materials and labor. It takes the firm 24 days to convert raw materials into a battery. Pasha allows its customers 40 days in which to pay for the batteries, and the firm generally pays its suppliers in 30 days. Assume 365 days in year for your calculations. What is the length of Pasha's cash conversion cycle? Round your
answer to two decimal places. At a steady state in which Pasha produces 1,100 batteries a day,
what amount of working capital must it finance? Round your answer
to the nearest dollar. By what amount could Pasha reduce its working capital financing
needs if it was able to stretch its payables deferral period to 39
days? Round your answer to the nearest dollar. Pasha's management is trying to analyze the effect of a proposed new production process on its working capital investment. The new production process would allow Pasha to decrease its inventory conversion period to 15 days and to increase its daily production to 2,100 batteries. However, the new process would cause the cost of materials and labor to increase to $11. Assuming the change does not affect the average collection period (40 days) or the payables deferral period (30 days), what will be the length of its cash conversion cycle and its working capital financing requirement if the new production process is implemented? Round your answers to two decimal places.

Implement and complement the recursive code to compute the product of two positive integers, x and y, using only addition and/or subtraction. The function will take as its arguments two integers to multiply together ( x x y ) and will return the product.
Hint: consider the following:
6 x 1 = 6
6 x 2 = 6 + (6 x 1)
6 x 3 = 6 + (6 x 2) = 6 + [6 + (6 x 1)] = 6 + 6 + 6
