EGT1: Task 1.
When owning or managing a business it’s important to keep track of the marginal revenue. The most important factors in showing you if your business is a success are cost, revenue and profit. Revenue can high for a company, but if the costs are high as well a profit won’t show and they will most likely not be able to make it. It’s important for businesses to keep track of their profits and cost’s. The way businesses figure their profit maximization is by determining the price and the number of widgets made to get the highest profit they can for their business. There are two ways of figuring your highest profits, one of which is by Total Revenue/Total Cost method and the other way is Marginal Revenue/ Marginal Cost method.
A1: Looking at Marginal Revenue shows how much profit a business has by selling each extra widget. Marginal Revenue is the change in total revenue coming with a change in quantity of widgets sold. Marginal Revenue is the difference in total revenue minus the difference in quantity.
A2: In the Marginal Revenue/Marginal Cost method, for each unit sold the Marginal profit is equal to the Marginal Revenue less the Marginal Cost. Profit maximization is when Marginal Revenue is equal to the Marginal Cost. To show this, a business compares the amounts that each additional unit sold would add to the total revenue and the total cost.
B: For Company A to find their Marginal Revenue, they would take the difference in total revenue after a widget is produced and divide that by the change in quantity.
B1: In the scenario for Company A, the quantity change is one and the marginal revenue only increases when the first widget is produced. The only increase is when one widget is produced that yields the Marginal Revenue of 150, then subtract by ten when two widgets are made, bringing the marginal revenue to 140, when three widgets are made its…...

...EGT1 Economics and Global Business Applications Introduction: The study of government regulation and the competitive environment for business is relevant to all those who study business. All business candidates need to understand how the competitive environment will impact their employers and businesses. Task: Write an essay (suggested length of 2–3 pages) that describes the relationship between regulation and market structures and how regulation affects the market. A. Define industrial (i.e., economic) regulation. Industrial Regulation happens when government commissions regulate the rates or prices of natural monopolies. 1. Explain why industrial regulation exists. In a market structure of perfect competition industrial regulation is not required because there is a lot of competition and this encourages competing industries to make good use of resources, also the price of their goods are determined by the price the market will bear and consumers benefit. Whereas in a monopolistic competition there exists a market structure that could allow competitive monopolies, duopolies, oligopolies, and monopolies to charge higher than competitive prices or the use inefficient use of resources and limited supplies, creating an environment that is not conducive to the benefit of the consumer. .

... COMPAIRING ARTISTIC PERIODS RENAISSANCE ART AND MANNERISM ART WESTERN GOVERNORS UNIVERSITY IWT1 TASK1 COMPARING ARTISTIC PERIODS The Renaissance period was from roughly the 14th century to the 17th century of the common era (CE) beginning in Italy later spreading throughout Europe. The word Renaissance comes from the original Italian word "Rinascimento" or "rinascere" which means "to be reborn" according to Harper (2012). The influence of the Renaissance movement can be observed in art, music, science, religion, politics, philosophy, literature, as well as other areas of intellectual inquiry. The Renaissance brought about a way of thinking focused on the bettering the person and having a well rounded and educated person in all aspects of the humanities as mentioned earlier. One theory as to the reason for this shift was the devastation brought on by the "Black Death" or Plague causing people to think more about their lives on Earth, as opposed to the afterlife or their spirituality (Wikipedia 2012). One distinguishing trait of Renaissance art is development and use of realistic perspective in paintings and renderings which more closely resemble how a natural scene or surroundings appeared. One such painting that demonstrates this perspective is "The San Zaccaria Altarpiece" by Giovanni Bellini (WGA, 2012 / Struth, 1995). The arch vaults and floor show a realistic perspective of how the Madonna and Saints may have actually appeared. Each of the characters within......

...EGT1 Task 1 – Marginal Analysis The profit calculation of total revenue and total costs is Profit (P) equals total revenue (TR) minus total costs (TC) and focuses on maximizing this difference. Profit will be maximized when the total revenue, or the amount they would receive by selling that particular widget exceeds the total cost, or the costs associated with making this widget by the greatest amount. The greatest difference between these two is considered the profit.The profit calculation of marginal revenue to marginal costs is different where the company will compare the marginal revenue (MR) they would receive from selling one more widget to the marginal cost (MC) of producing that additional widget, and how much cost it would add to the total revenue and total costs. Profit maximization occurs when the marginal revenue received from the widget is the same as the marginal cost of producing the widget.Marginal revenue is calculated by dividing the change in total revenue (TR) by the change in quantity (Q) sold, which is calculated as ΔTR/ΔQ (MR = ΔTR/ΔQ) (Gish). Another way to figure marginal revenue is to take the total revenue of a particular quantity of widgets and subtracting the total revenue of one less widget. Quantity | TR | MR | 0 | $0.00 | $0.00 | 1 | $150.00 | $150.00 | 2 | $290.00 | $140.00 | 3 | $420.00 | $130.00 | 4 | $540.00 | $120.00 | 5 | $650.00 | $110.00 | 6 | $750.00 | $100.00 | 7 | $840.00 | $90.00 | 8 | $920.00 ...

...EGT1 Task 1: March 15, 2013 A.  Explain profit maximization from the following approaches: 1.  Total revenue to total cost: Profit maximization occurs when total cost is subtracted from total revenue. The area where the largest gap occurs is where the greatest profit maximization occurs. 2.  Marginal revenue to marginal cost: Profit maximization occurs when marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost.   B.  Explain the calculation used to determine marginal revenue. The calculation for marginal revenue is MR = ∆TR/∆Q (marginal revenue is equal to the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity) 1. Discuss how marginal revenue increases, decreases, or remains constant in the given scenario. The marginal revenue decreases with each unit produced because at some point the marginal cost will be greater than the marginal revenue and at that point the company should halt production in order to avoid cutting into the profit margin.   | | | | | |Quantity |TR |TC |MR | | | | | | |0 |$0.00 |$10 | | | | | | | |1 |$150 |$30 |$150 | | | | | | |2 |$290 |$50 |$140 | | | | | | |3 |$420 |$80 ......

...EGT1 – Task 1 6/5/14 In this essay I will define terms of economics and explain their relationships. How a profit maximizing firm determines the level of output & the reaction to the level of marginal revenue will also be explained. Profit maximization is the process which determines the price & output level which the most profit will be made. The total revenue – total cost approach is based on the profit equals the revenue minus the total cost. The total revenue is the sum of the company’s sales of the item in question where the total cost is the cost the company pays to produce the product. Marginal Revenue – Marginal cost should also be considered. Marginal revenue is defined as the extra revenue made when one additional product is sold. Where total cost is the cost paid to produce the product, the marginal cost is the cost paid to produce one more unit. As stated above the marginal revenue is the extra revenue made when one additional product is sold. The calculation used to determine this is total revenue divided by total quantity sold. In the scenario provided, the marginal revenue consistently decreases when more are sold, as you can see in the table & graph provided below. Also stated above marginal cost is the cost paid to produce one more unit of product. The calculation used to determine this is total cost divided by total output. In the scenario provided, the marginal cost increases when more are produced as you can see in the table...

...GKE1 Task1 Student 320979 A. One significant environmental factor in the development of the Egyptian society is the Nile River. The Nile River made it possible for the Egyptian people “to form the first nation by 3000 BCE” (The Gift of the Nile, n.d.) From its rise to its fall the Egyptian civilization depended on the Nile River. The Nile focus created a more positive point of view for Egyptian society “for it could be seen as a source of never-failing bounty to be thankfully received, rather than a menacing cause of floods” (Guisepi, n.d.). The Nile River flooded yearly when the snow melted off of the East African mountains. The violent flow of water would turn up silt, fragments of plants and soil, and deposit them along its banks. The nutrient laden silt allowed the Egyptians to plant and cultivate crops. This natural resource created a vital ecological dynamic that aloud them to build an empire around. The Nile River also provided them a way to transfer goods and connect with others. “These contacts spread certain Egyptian influences, notably in monumental architecture, to other areas” (Guisepi, n.d.). The Egyptian people used the environment along the Nile River to their benefit and not only developed the land, but their culture as well. B. The first reference to charioteers in the civilized world comes from Syria around 1800 BCE (Plubins, 2013). Over the next 400 years the advancement, “either by direct migration of steppe people or by diffusion,” (Plubins, 2013)...

I had the pleasure of living there for two years in my late teens and remember learning all about their customs and culture. I am going to address three cross-cultural differences that would have to be taken into consideration if my company was to start business here. Labor Force. Hierarchy is greatly adhered to in Japan. In America, the oldest is not necessarily the best person for the job. Not so in Japan. In Japan, hierarchy and promotions are associated with the eldest. The person with the longest employment tenor or eldest member of the team or group would be the one honored and looked up to for advice. There would be major issues in company meetings where Americans could possibly be loud, disruptive, sarcastic, and vocal. Japanese employers would feel offended and disgraced if employees behaved in such manner. There would also be major issues in advertising if the American marketing efforts did not respect such hierarchy. Loud, disgraceful or disrespectful attitudes in advertising could be the difference in why my company would not selling and product, making a profit or gaining any investors. The Japanese do allow for some small degree of error in their customs and traditions, however, you don’t want to seem offensive as soon as you arrive. Sex and Gender.

...EGT1 Global Business Cross Cultural Differences in India Western Governors University India has become a global conduit for business as they have liberalized their economic policies over the past 20 years. Companies are flocking to India because of many factors, including, less expensive labor costs, increasing growth rate, and an abundance of a highly skilled workforce. These factors in addition to other advantages have substantially increased the number of United States businesses looking to grow beyond the U. S borders into the county of India. Dunlop Software Consultant’s goal is to also expand its operations internationally and believes that India has the business environment to meet our goal of expansion globally. Accordingly, I will be examining cross cultural challenges, differences in business practices, and ethical issues that we encounter as by expanding operations into India. As we consider our expansion of our consulting business into India, there are cultural differences that we must consider and understand. There are obvious cultural differences between business and personal standards in the U.S and India. The first major cross-cultural difference to be aware of is communication. India has a culture of hierarchy that can be traced back to the caste systems of 3000 years ago. (Kumar, 2005) The caste system is a rigid and upward mobility is difficult if not impossible. Although India abolished the caste system it continues to have steeped......

...One of the most important objectives of any business is profit maximization. The concept aids in the survival of the business, guarantees an increase in the return of its shareholders, and also prevents insolvency from occurring. In order for a business to understand profit maximization it must first comprehend the relationship between marginal revenue and cost. For a company to properly understand marginal revenue and cost, it would have to determine how it is related to total revenue (TR) and total cost (TC). The TR is the total amount of money that a firm gets from, selling their products; the calculation to determine total revenue is TR=price X quantity. Total revenue is not considered profit though. Profit is actually total revenue minus total cost (profit=TR-TC). According to the scenario of the chart below, Company A increases production and sales from 7 units to 8 units, the total revenue shows no increase. Total Revenue to Total Cost is cost, therefore following the scenario, the profit maximization occurred when 8 units were produced. The total revenue for the production of 8 units was $920.00, the total cost of producing those units was $380.00. If Company A continued increasing their level of output, ultimately costs would increase as well. Instead of looking for the largest difference between revenue and cost, now the purpose is to find when these two aspects of marginal analysis are equal. Marginal revenue to Marginal Cost is equal; MR=MC. Marginal revenue...

...Marginal revenue is the amount added to total revenue by the sale of one more unit, which is equal to the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity of the units sold. In a purely competitive market marginal revenue is equal to the price of the unit sold. In a pure monopoly marginal cost is always less than the price of the unit. Marginal cost is the additional cost of production of one extra unit. It is equal to the change in total cost divided by the change in output. In the short run, marginal cost is equal to the change in total variable cost divided by the change in output. Profit is the return on entrepreneurial ability; total revenue minus total cost. Profit, in this sense takes into account all the costs of business operation and the wage of the owner or entrepreneur, a wage that needs to exceed the entrepreneur’s ability to just go off and start another business instead of focusing on this one. Anything over the entrepreneur’s wage and the total cost would be considered profit. Profit maximization is the point at which the marginal revenue of each resource is equal to its marginal cost. This is the quantity of each resource that must be employed to maximize profit or minimize loss. A profit maximizing company would use the marginal revenue minus the marginal cost rule to find the point of profit maximization. When output is relatively low the marginal revenue will usually exceed the marginal cost. At high output levels, however, the marginal......

...Humanities RIWT Task1 Describe Dadaism Dadaism or Dada was developed during World War I. The movement was born, as they say, in Zurich by refugees from mostly Germany and France. Dadaism used visual art, literature such as poetry, theatre, and some graphic design. It was a protest against the war. Because of the horrific events going on in the war, Dadaists used everything from obscenities, scatological humor, visual puns, and any object that would do to thrash nationalism, rationalism, materialism and anything which they felt added to or contributed to the war. Dada used prefabricated materials such as photographs, paintings and mass-produced objects in their art works. They used the idea as much as the materials. An everyday object is turned into an art by object by placing it an artistic context. It disregarded tradition and the use of conscious form in favor of the ridiculous. The movement spread from Zurich to other parts of Europe and eventually New York City. The art form began to get serious consideration in the early 1920s. The Dadaism slowly faded. Describe Surrealism The dictionary defines Surrealism as “A style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or non-rational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects.” Surrealism was a movement in the 1920s, and is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members. Surrealist works feature the......
