You bought a house for $150,000 and put down 10% and got a mortgage at an interest rate of 4.35 % per year. You would pay it back by paying an equal amount at the end of each month for 15 years? (Show all work) How much is your loan amount? How much is your monthly loan payment? How much is your loan balance after 2 years? How much is your total interest payment by the end of year 3?

Medical Research Corporation is expanding its research and production capacity to introduce a new line of products. Current plans call for the expenditure of $100 million on four projects of equal size ($25 million each), but different returns. Project A is in blood clotting proteins and has an expected return of 18 percent. Project B relates to a hepatitis vaccine and carries a potential return of 14 percent. Project C, dealing with a cardiovascular compound, is expected to earn 11.8 percent, and Project D, an investment in orthopedic implants, is expected to show a 10.9 percent return.
The firm has $23,000,000 in retained earnings. After a capital structure with $23,000,000 million in retained earnings is reached (in which retained earnings represent 60 percent of the financing), all additional equity financing must come in the form of new common stock.
Common stock is selling for $26 per share and underwriting costs are estimated at $2.9 if new shares are issued. Dividends for the next year will be $0.71 per share (D_{1}), and earnings and dividends have grown consistently at 11% percent per year.
The yield on comparative bonds has been hovering at 10 percent. The investment banker feels that the first $19,500,000 of bonds could be sold to yield 10 percent while additional debt might require a 2 percent premium and be sold to yield 12 percent. The corporate tax rate is 30 percent. Debt represents 40 percent of the capital structure.
a. 
Based on the two sources of financing, what is the initial weighted average cost of capital? (Use K_{d} and K_{e}.) Round your response to two decimal places. 
b. 
At what size capital structure will the firm run out of retained earnings? Round your response to the nearest whole dollar. 
c. 
What will the marginal cost of capital be immediately after that point? Round your response to two decimal places. 
d. 
At what size capital structure will there be a change in the cost of debt? Round your response to the nearest whole dollar. 
e. 
What will the marginal cost of capital be immediately after that point? Round your response to two decimal places.

The price to earnings ratio (P/E) is an important tool in financial work. A random sample of 14 large U.S. banks (J. P. Morgan, Bank of America, etc) gave the following P/E ratios.
24, 16, 22, 14, 12, 13, 17, 22, 15, 19, 23, 13, 11, 18
Generally speaking, a low P/E ratio indicates a "value" or bargain stock. Financial publications indicated that the P/E ratio of the S&P 500 stock index has typically been 20.0. Let x be a random variable representing the P/E ratio of all large U.S. bank stocks. We assume that x has a normal distribution and σ = 4.1. Do these data indicate that the P/E ratio of all U.S. bank stocks is less than 20.0? Use α = 0.05.
(a) Enter the following. x =
s = (
b) Identify the claim, the null hypothesis, and the alternative hypothesis.
Claim: 20.0
Ho: 20.0
H1: 20.0
(c) Will you use a lefttailed, righttailed, or twotailed test? twotailed lefttailed righttailed
d) What sampling distribution will you use? Explain the rationale for your choice of sampling distribution.
The Student's t, since we assume that x has a normal distribution with known σ.
The standard normal, since n is large with known σ.
The standard normal, since we assume that x has a normal distribution with known σ.
The standard normal, since we assume that x has a normal distribution with unknown σ.
The standard normal, since n is large with unknown σ. The Student's t, since n is large with unknown σ.
(e) Sketch the sampling distribution showing the area corresponding to the approximate Pvalue.
(f) Will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? Are the data statistically significant at level α?
At the α = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.
At the α = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.
At the α = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant
.At the α = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.
(g) State your conclusion in the context of the application.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that average P/E for large banks is less than the S&P 500 Index.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that average P/E for large banks is less than the S&P 500 Index.
Reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that average P/E for large banks is less than the S&P 500 Index
.Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that average P/E for large banks is less than the S&P 500 Index.

Sometimes one of the hard things to determine is what type of
research design to use when conducting research. Think about the

design? When are you most likely to use this design?

design? When are you most likely to use this design?

Suppose that we have a process that produces two types of an item: Blue Item and Orange Item. Both of the items require the same pure sequential operations: O1, O2, O3. O1 and O3 are manual operations. O2 is the main and an automated operation which differentiates the items (e.g. gives different colors). Operation 1 takes 1 minutes per item. It is a manual operation that is common to both types. Operation 2 takes 4 minutes per item. It is an automated operation. Operation 3 takes 2 minute per item. It is a manual operation that is common to both types. Draw the GANTT Chart, calculate the flow time, cycle time, throughput, value added time and waste when the setup time for machine 2 where the Operation 2 occurs is 2 minutes and the batch size is 3 items per batch.
