The martin family has a disposable income of $90,000 annually. assume that their marginal propensity to consume is 0.8 (the martin family spends 80% of new disposable income on consumption) and that their autonomous consumption spending is equal to $10,000. what is the amount of the martin family\'s annual consumer spending?


Answer 1
Answer: 90000$:100%=x$:80%, x*100=90000*80, x=72000$
The Martin family spends 80% of annual income which is 72000$ and their autonomous consumption spending is 10000$.
So Martin's family annual consumer spending is 72000$+10000$=82000$.

Assume that the net sales for a company is $5,000, cost of goods sold is $3,000, and average inventory is $1,500. Calculate the number of days' sales in inventory.



182.5 days


Days Sales in Inventory also called 'inventory days' or 'days in inventory; is a ratio used by accountants to calculate the average number of days (considering the entity's present sales effort) it will take to convert its inventory into sales.

Days Sales in Inventory (DSI) is computed by dividing 365 days by inventory turnover. inventory turnover is the ratio of cost of goods sold to average Inventory.

The formula for calculating Days Sales in Inventory (DSI) is given below:

Days Sales in Inventory (DSI) =  

Inventory Turnover                 =  

Cost of goods sold                 =  $3,000

Average Inventory                  =  $1,500

Inventory Turnover                 =  $3,000/$1,500 = 2 times

Days Sales in Inventory (DSI) = 365/2  = 182.5 days                                        

(Days sales in inventory is calculated as 365 days divided by inventory turnover.

Inventory turnover = $960,000

Days Sales in Inventory Formula can be calculated by dividing the ending inventory by cost of goods sold and multiply by 365. Days Sales in Inventory= (Ending Inventory/) x 365.

Days sales of inventory (DSI) is the average number of days it takes for a firm to sell off inventory. DSI is a metric that analysts use to determine the efficiency of sales. A high DSI can indicate that a firm is not properly managing its inventory or that it has inventory that is difficult to sell.


182.5 days


Number of days' sales in inventory is the average time it takes an entity to convert inventory into sales.

It is given by the ratio of the average inventory to the cost of goods sold then multiplied by the number of days in the period.


Cost of goods sold is $3,000 and average inventory is $1,500,

Number of days' sales in inventory = ($1,500/$3,000) × 365 days

Where the number of days in the year is 365.

Number of days' sales in inventory = 182.5 days


Local Co. has sales of $ 10.4 million and cost of sales of $ 5.9 million. Its​ selling, general and administrative expenses are $ 480 comma 000 and its research and development is $ 1.4 million. It has annual depreciation charges of $ 1.3 million and a tax rate of 35 %.a. What is Local's gross margin? (answer in %, Round to one decimal place.) b. What is Local's operating margin? (answer in %, Round to one decimal place.)
c. What is Local's net profit margin? (answer in %, Round to two decimal places.)



(a) 43.26%

(b) 12.69%

(c) 8.25%


(a) Gross profit:

= Sales - cost of sales

= $10,400,000 - $5,900,000

= $4,500,000

Local's gross margin:

= (Gross profit ÷ Total sales) × 100

= ($4,500,000 ÷ $10,400,000) × 100

= 0.4326 × 100

= 43.26%

(b) Local's operating margin:

= [(Gross profit- selling, general and administrative expenses-Depreciation-Research and development) ÷ Total sales] × 100

= [($4,500,000 - $480,000 - $1,300,000 - $1,400,000) ÷ $10,400,000] × 100

= ($1,320,000 ÷ $10,400,000) × 100

= 0.1269 × 100

= 12.69%

(c) Operating income:

= Sales - cost of sales - selling, general and administrative expenses - Depreciation - Research and development

= $10,400,000 - $5,900,000 - $480,000 - $1,300,000 - $1,400,000

= $1,320,000

Taxes = Operating income × tax rate

          = $1,320,000 × 35%

          = $462,000

Local's net profit margin:

= [(Operating income - Taxes) ÷ Sales] × 100

= [($1,320,000 - $462,000) ÷ $10,400,000] × 100

= ($858,000 ÷ $10,400,000) × 100

= 0.0825 × 100

= 8.25%

Is gross profit or net profit more important to consider when you're deciding how successful and profitable a company is? Why?


I took the business class last year but if I remember correctly Net profit is more important to consider because even if your net profit is 0, your company is still a success.


Net profit is more important to consider when you are deciding how successful and profitable a company is. Net profit takes into account all expenses and what your net profit is.
