1. Should Mr. Thomas use averages when the Center has three separate programs?
2. Should the teachers be considered a fixed or a variable cost?
3. What’s the new breakeven point if we consider an increase in supplies’ price, expected renovations expense, and extra teachers’ salaries...

A infeasible solution is one that does not satisfies all linear and non-linear constraints. When the solution is along with the artificial variable even when the aolution is optimized then its is a infeasible solution
3) What is an unbounded solution? How is this condition recognized in...
Marx’s concepts of the surplus value theory of labor, value of commodities or general formula for capital, and monopoly capitalism.
The surplus value theory of labor in Rima’s text is explained in economic terms using the following formula for the rate of surplus value: S1 = S/V, where...
Programming Problem
• Solution: The set of values of decision variables [pic] which satisfy the constrains of an LP problem is said to constitute solution to that LP problem.
• Feasible solution: The set of values of decision variables [pic] which satisfy all the constrains and non negativity conditions...
produced. All costs are in Dirhams. The price per unit of output is 60 Dirhams.
UNITS OF OUTPUT | TOTAL COST | FIXED COST | VARIABLE COST | AVERAGE TOTAL COST | AVERAGE VARIABLE COST | AVERAGE FIXED COST | MARGINALREVENUE | MARGINAL COST |

calculate the total revenue based on the maximum willingness to pay for the different segments of customers. Segment costs are calculated based on Variable cost per unit and segment development cost. The product development cost is deducted in the end from the total segment profit to get the Net profit...
right= increase in demand
-Any change that reduces the quantity demanded at every price shifts the demand curve to the left= decrease in demand
Variables That Shift the Demand Curve
* Income- Lower income means that you have less to spend in total. Normal good- When the demand for a good falls when...
minimum supply price of $15, Rick determines to supply 10 rides a day
b. Which owner has the largest producer surplus when the price of a ride is $17.50? Explain.
Rick is the largest producer surplus from rides when the price is $17.50 a ride. At this price he sells 15 rides a day because the 15th ride...
3. What is the meaning of a reduced cost?
For variables that are positive – reduced cost = 0
For variables that are 0, the reduced cost means
1. The amount that objective function coefficient must change before that variable can become positive.
2. The amount the objective...
Analysis
• Range of Optimality: Range of values for coefficient of a variable such that the optimal point does not change is called the range of optimality. The values of the objective function will change if the variable is nonzero at optimality. This assumes that there are no other changes to...
makes her final decision, Maria plans to explore the following questions independently except where otherwise indicated.
Answer:
1) The decision variables are:
P: The amount of potatoes purchased per week
G: The amount of beans purchased per week
Such that,

the quantity of a good or service demanded equals the quantity of that good or service supplied; AKA the market clearing price
2. Definition of Surplus: The excess of good or service that occurs when the quantity supplied exceeds the quantity of demanded. Surpluses occur when the price is above the...
2003-2007. We specifically choose Japan as the trading partner in this research, as opposed to the rest of the world, because two of our independent variables (namely exchange rates and foreign country’s income) will be much more complicated if multilateral trading activities are chosen instead of bilateral...

and price will rise. If at a given price, the quantity supplied exceeds the quantity demanded, there is excess supply and price will fall. Consumer surplus is a measure of how much net benefit buyers enjoy from the ability to participate in a particular market. To get an intuitive feel for this concept...
