Bret O’Brien works for MediSys Corporation as a manager in product engineering. First employed at the company in 1995, he is experienced in his field having previously led the engineering effort for pulmonary systems. O’Brien has been rated a high performer and was personally groomed for a managerial role by Len Broman the Vice President of Design and Engineering. He was one of the original members of the ad hoc group that formed to create the early development of the patient monitoring system to be used in hospitals’ intensive care units later named IntensCare. O’Brien was then included in the formalized core team put together by Art Beaumont. His responsibility is to ensure that the software and hardware’s forms will be finalized by May 1st. Bret O’Brien’s bases of power include legitimate power, information power, expert power, and referent power. He can exercise legitimate power for the obvious reason that he is the manager of the engineering and design area of the team for the IntensCare project. He reports directly back to the project leader, Jack Fogel, and is the voice for all those working under him in terms of product hardware development. Secondly, O’Brien holds information power because he is the manager of design and engineering. He knows every stage of the development process of the software and hardware including progress and setbacks that the engineering area of the team is having giving him information power. For example, O’Brien held the knowledge of some serious engineering problems, which arose with trying to fit the data displays and battery units into the customer size specifications, that he chose only to divulge to Jack Fogel. Thirdly, O’Brien is able to exercise is expert power. Having obtained a Masters degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology as well as having been trained by Len Broman, the VP of Engineering and Design, O’Brien is very knowledgeable and experienced in product hardware...

Short answers
5. What two things must you normally specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.
Algorithm workbench
3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.
Declare Real price= 0.00
Display "the original price."

Assume that under no unusual circumstances (no storm), Jaeger sells 1,000 cases of Riesling. Consider diﬀerent cases: 1. Jaeger harvests grapes in anticipations of storm. Then the total revenue will be equal to 12×1000×$2.85 = $34200. 2. Jaeger doesn’t harvest and there is no storm with 50% chance. 2.1. With 40% chance, sugar concentration is 25%, then the total revenue is 12 × 1000 × $3.50 = $42000 2.2. With 40% chance, sugar concentration is 20%, then the total revenue is 12 × 1000 × $3.00 = $36000 2.3. With 20% chance, sugar concentration is below 20%, then the total revenue is 12 × 1000 × $2.50 = $30000 3. There is storm with 50% chance 3.1. Storm causes botrytis mold with probability 40%, then the price will increase but the total quantity produced will decrease by 30%. The total revenue is equal to 12 × 1000 × 70% × $8.00 = $67200. 3.2. With 60% chance, storm results in swelling of the berries and the price for a bottle goes down, though the total production output increases by 7.5%. The total revenue is 12 × 1000 × 107.5% × $2.00 = $25800. We can calculate the expected outcome based on conditional probabilities of each case or we can build a decision tree with a “decision” node at the beginning and “chance” nodes on the branch corresponding to the decision of not harvesting. The optimal decision for Jaeger is not to harvest; the expected...

Exchange rate
Sheep 1 acre of Land - Normal Land - Poor Land 1 Cabin - Deyonne - Batonne 1 Plow 1 Cart - Deyonne - Batonne 1 Ox 1 Coat 1 Goat 4 1 12 8 0.67 How to calculate 10 acres of Land = 40 Sheep 1 poor acre of Land = 1 Sheep 1 Cabin = 3 acres of Land, and 1 acre of Land = 4 Sheep 1 Plow = 2 goat and 1 Goat =0.33 Sheep 2 Carts = 1 poor acre of Land, and 1 poor acre of Land = 1 Sheep 1 Cart = 2 Sheep 1 Ox = 5 Sheep 5 Coat = 25 Goat, and 1 Goat = 0.33 Sheep 3 Goat =1 Sheep
Assumption - Exchange rate is sheep. - Unit of exchange rate is no. of sheep. - Interest rate in the last year is fixed. Therefore, the present value of this year equal to last year. - An acre of poor land equal to one sheep. - Any sheep that belong to others or is owed to others is not counted in personal asset - Property of wife is included in Batonne’s asset. - Two choice acres of land equal to two acres of land.

Remark : * After Deyonne settle 3 sheep to Tyrone
Solution: Our group’s opinion is that sheep is the best indicator to measure the wealth of Deyonne and Batonne to decide who is better off than the other. So, we convert every asset in terms of sheep. For any asset that does not clearly specific the value (e.g: in the case of Deyonne, where 2 carts can be traded for 1 poor acre of land), we try to make a logical...

For our Week 2 assignment, in Intermediate Algebra, we were asked to solve the problem number 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. aside from completing the problem, we were also asked to write a two to three page paper while including the five given vocabulary words for the week. Please see the problem below:
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a)
Write an inequality to describe this region.
b)
Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?
c)
Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?
Kindly consider the five given vocabulary words:
Solid line
Dashed line
Parallel
Linear inequality
Test point
In order to solve the problem, we need to be aware that the formula to solve any linear equation is y=mx+b. with the said, we can say that we have our y- intercept which is 330. (The ordered pair 0,330 demonstrates that the y coordinate is 330). Since we have our y- intercept, we will now discover what our slope is. The formula to determine any slope of a line is
m=y1- y2
x1-x2
M= 330-0
0-100
After performing division and simplifying, we have found that the slope of our line is -3.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
The inequality to...
