The costs incurred prior to January 1 on this job were as follows: direct materials $20,000, direct labor $12,000, and manufacturing overhead $16,000.

...Solutions Guide: 1. We focus on free cash flows rather than accounting profits because these are the flows that the firm receives and can reinvest. Only by examining cash flows are we able to correctly analyze the timing of the benefit or cost. Also, we are only interested in these cash flows on an after tax basis as only those flows are available to the shareholder. In addition, it is only the incremental cash flows that interest us, because, looking at the project from the point of the company as a whole, the incremental cash flows are the marginal benefits from the project and, as such, are the increased value to the firm from accepting the project. 2. Although depreciation is not a cash flow item, it does affect the level of the differential cash flows over the project's life because of its effect on taxes. Depreciation is an expense item and, the more depreciation incurred, the larger are expenses. Thus, accounting profits become lower and in turn, so do taxes which are a cash flow item. 3. When evaluating a capital budgeting proposal, sunk costs are ignored. We are interested in only the incremental after-tax cash flows, or free cash flows, to the company as a whole. Regardless of the decision made on the investment at hand, the sunk costs will have already occurred, which means these are not incremental cash flows. Hence, they are irrelevant.

...Chapter 1 Managerial Accounting and the Business Environment Solutions to Questions 1-1 Managerial accounting is concerned with providing information to managers for use within the organization. Financial accounting is concerned with providing information to stockholders, creditors, and others outside of the organization. 1-2 Essentially, managers carry out three major activities in an organization: planning, directing and motivating, and controlling. All three activities involve decision making. 1-3 The Planning and Control Cycle involves formulating plans, implementing plans, measuring performance, and evaluating differences between planned and actual performance. 1-4 A line position is directly related to the achievement of the basic objectives of the organization. A staff position is not directly related to the achievement of those objectives; rather, it is supportive, providing services and assistance to other parts of the organization. 1-5 In contrast to financial accounting, managerial accounting: (1) focuses on the needs of the manager; (2) places more emphasis on the future; (3) emphasizes relevance and flexibility, rather than precision; (4) emphasizes the segments of an organization; (5) is not governed by GAAP; and (6) is not mandatory. 1-6 A number of benefits accrue from reduced setup time.

...Brealey 5CE Solutions to Chapter 1 1. real executive airplanes brand names financial stock investment capital budgeting financing 2. A firm might cut its labour force dramatically which could reduce immediate expenses and increase profits in the short term. Over the long term, however, the firm might not be able to serve its customers properly or it might alienate its remaining workers; if so, future profits will decrease, and the stock price will decrease in anticipation of these problems. Similarly, a firm can boost profits over the short term by using less costly materials even if this reduces the quality of the product. Once customers catch on, sales will decrease and profits will fall in the future. The stock price will fall. The moral of these examples is that, because stock prices reflect present and future profitability, the firm should not necessarily sacrifice future prospects for short-term gains. 3. The key advantage of separating ownership and management in a large corporation is that it gives the corporation permanence. The corporation continues to exist if managers are replaced or if stockholders sell their ownership interests to other investors. The corporation’s permanence is an essential characteristic in allowing corporations to obtain the large amounts of financing required by many business entities. Both public and private corporations are distinct legal entity, separate from its owners (ie., its shareholders). The key difference between...

...SOLUTIONS TO TEXT PROBLEMS: Chapter 6 Quick Quizzes 1. A price ceiling is a legal maximum on the price at which a good can be sold. Examples of price ceilings include rent control, price controls on gasoline in the 1970s, and price ceilings on water during a drought. A price floor is a legal minimum on the price at which a good can be sold. Examples of price floors include the minimum wage and farm-support prices. A price ceiling leads to a shortage, if the ceiling is binding, because suppliers won’t produce enough goods to meet demand unless the price is allowed to rise above the ceiling. A price floor leads to a surplus, if the floor is binding, because suppliers produce more goods than are demanded unless the price is allowed to fall below the floor. 2. With no tax, as shown in Figure 1, the demand curve is D1 and the supply curve is S. The equilibrium price is P1 and the equilibrium quantity is Q1. If the tax is imposed on car buyers, the demand curve shifts down by the amount of the tax ($1000) to D2. The downward shift in the demand curve leads to a decline in the equilibrium price to P2 (the amount received by sellers from buyers) and a decline in the equilibrium quantity to Q2. The price received by sellers declines by P1 – P2, shown in the figure as ( PS. Buyers pay a total of P2 + $1,000, an increase in what they pay of P2 + $1,000 - P1, shown in the figure as ( PB.

...Refining Solutions It is essential to refine ideas and solutions to find the highest quality solution to a problem. The creative thinking process is used to produce ideas but the critical thinking process is used to evaluate and refine ideas and solutions. Applying criticism to ideas and solutions reduces the risk for error and makes good ideas even better (Ruggiero, 2009). In this paper criticism will be applied to a solution selected to improve morale at Wheeling Hospital. Arguments will be evaluated and revised resulting in a refined and final solution to the problem. Original Issue Wheeling Hospital is adding a fifth tower and the time for departments to move into the new, advanced tower is approaching quickly. Chief executive officer Ron Violi thinks the transition is an exciting time for him and his staff members. It was a major shock to Violi when he learned more than three quarters of his staff was unhappy and not excited for the move into the new tower. Through close observation of my fellow coworkers, I discovered the discontent and feelings of frustration. These feelings originated because of the lack of communication from administration relating to tower five. Staff members are unaware their expectations, their workload, or how they are supposed to function without knowledge of where equipment, departments, and items necessary to perform their duties are located. Staff members have concerns about shortages and are not notified......

...Learning and Information Services Guide to Proofreading What is Proofreading? Proofreading involves checking the content and appearance of your written work: looking for errors in typing, spelling and grammar, and ensuring that it is presented in a style that meets the requirements of a module or course. Proofreading is a skill that requires time, but the more you practice the quicker and easier it will become to spot any corrections that need to be made. Why is Proofreading important? Proofreading is an essential final stage of the essay writing process which should not be overlooked as a poorly presented piece of work can lose marks. After the effort of finding information and writing the essay, don’t lose marks by submitting a work spoiled by spelling and grammatical errors, or that does not adhere to your module’s requirements. A well-presented essay indicates to your tutor that you care about your work. Areas to check: Proofreading can be time-consuming and it is easy to underestimate the time required. It is a good idea to build in time for proofreading into your assignment plan. It is especially important that you follow any module requirements regarding referencing, line spacing, paragraph indentation, and margins, and that these are observed consistently and continuously. Checklist: Grammar | | check | spelling | Don’t rely on the spellchecker in Word - this won’t pick up “typos” as from/form or been/bean. Use a dictionary to check......
