Given the following demand​ equation: Q​ = 100 minus− 5p Calculate the price that corresponds with a price elasticity value of negative 1.00−1.00. p​ = nothing ​(enter your response rounded to two decimal places​).


Answer 1


P = 10


Given that,

price elasticity of demand(Negative) = -1

Demand​ equation: Q​ = 100 - 5p

Differentiating Q w.r.t p,

Price elasticity of demand =

-1 = (-5) × [P ÷ (100 - 5p)]

-1(100 - 5P) = -5P

-100 + 5P = -5P

10P = 100

P = 10

Therefore, the price of $10 that corresponds with a price elasticity value of negative 1.00.

Calculating Costs of Issuing Stock TriState Corp. recently went public with an initial public offering in which they received a total of $51.60 million in new capital funding. The underwriter used a firm commitment offering in which the offer price was $34.00 and the underwriter's spread was $3.10. TriState also paid legal and other administrative costs of $1,110,000 for the IPO. What is the number of shares issued through this IPO?





The computation of the number of shares issued through this IPO is shown below:

= (Total amount received + legal and other administrative costs) ÷ (Offer price - underwriter's spread)

= ($51,600,000 + $1,110,000) ÷ ($34 - $3.10)

= (52,710,000) ÷ ($30.9)


Simply we take the total amount by considering the legal and other administrative costs and divide it by the offer price minus underwriter's spread so that the accurate amount can come.


Suppose that five years ago you borrowed $300,000 using a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with an annual interest rate of 10% with monthly payments and compounding. The interest rate on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages has fallen to 8.5% and you are wondering whether you should refinance the loan. Refinancing costs are expected to be 5% of the new loan amount. a. What is the net present value of refinancing if you make all of the scheduled payments on the new loan? b. What is the net present value of refinancing if you pay off the new loan at the end of the 3rd year? c. How many payments do you need to make on the new loan in order for refinancing to have a positive net present value?



Please check the explanation below.


Rate of Interest =10% or 0.83% monthly

Monthly Payment under this plan=PMT(0.0083, 360, 300000) =$2,632.71

Loan outstanding after 5 years of payments =$289,723

New Interest Rate =8.5% or 0.7083% monthly

Balance Tenure= 25 years

New Monthly Installment =PMT(0.007083,300,289723) =$2,332.93

Monthly savings in installment reduction =$2,632.71 - 2,332.93 =$299.78

a. Net present value of refinancing = -0.05x289,723 + 299.78x{(1-(1+0.007083)-300)/0.007083}

                                                  = -14,486.15 + 299.78x124.1886

                                                  = -14,486.15 + 37,229.25

                                                  = 22,743.10

b. With new monthly installment, balance outstanding at the end of 8th year =$278,258

Net Present Value of Refinance = -0.05x289,723 + 299.78x{(1-(1+0.007083)-36)/0.007083}

                                                  = -14,486.15 + 299.78x31.68

                                                  = -14,486.15 + 9,446.46

                                                  = -4,989.68

c. For refinance loan to have net present value positive, let n payments are required,

NPV = -0.05x289,723 + 299.78x{(1-(1+0.007083)-n)/0.007083}

14,486.15 = 299.78x{(1-(1+0.007083)-n)/0.007083}

14,486.15x0.00783/299.78 =(1-(1.007083)-n)

0.3423 = 1-(1.007083)-n

(1.007083)-n = 0.6577

(1.007083)n = 1.5204

Taking Log both sides,

n = log(1.5204)/log(1.007083)

n = 59.36

Hence, he would need to make 60 payments for making NPV of refinance as zero.

In the month of June, a department had 8000 units in beginning work in process that were 70% complete. During June, 32000 units were transferred into production from another department. At the end of June there were 4000 units in ending work in process that were 40% complete. Materials are added at the beginning of the process, while conversion costs are incurred uniformly throughout the process (Please show work)A. How many units were transfered out of the process in june________B.The equivalent units of production for materials in June were _______C. The equivalent units of production for conversion costs for June were_______



A. 36,000 units

B. 40,000 units

C. 32,800 units.


A. To calculate units transferred out we add beginning work in process to units transferred during the period and subtract the ending work in process units.

8,000 + 32,000 - 4,000 = 36,000

Units transferred out of process in June = 36,000

B. The equivalent units of production for materials will be ;

8,000 + 32,000 = 40,000.

C. The equivalent units of production for Conversion costs will be:

(8000 * 30%) + 32000 - (4000 * 40%) = 32,800.

At December 31, 2018, the balance sheet of Darwin Corporation included 8 million common shares and 4 million non-convertible preferred shares. On July 1, 2019, Darwin issued a 5 for 4 stock split on its common shares and paid $10 million cash dividends on the preferred stock. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2019, was $40 million. Darwin’s 2019 EPS should be:___________________________.





Data provided in the question:

common shares = 8 million

non-convertible preferred shares = 4 million

stock split on its common shares = 5 for 4 = 5/4

cash dividends on the preferred stock on common shares = $10 million

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2019 = $40 million


Darwin’s 2019 EPS

= [ Net income - cash dividends ] ÷ ( common shares × stock split )

= [ $40 million - $10 million] ÷ ( 8 million × ( 5 ÷ 4 ) )

= [ $30 million ] ÷ ( 10 million )

= $3
