## Homework 11 1. A professional football team is preparing its budget for the next

Homework 11
1. A professional football team is preparing its budget for the next year. One component of the budget is the revenue that they can expect from ticket sales. The home venue, Dylan Stadium, has five different seating zones with different prices. Key information is provided. The demands are all assumed to be normally distributed. Determine the distribution of total revenue under these assumptions using 50 trials. What the min, mean, max and standard deviation of the total ticket revenue?
2. Suppose that a small candy store makes Valentine’s Day gift boxes that cost \$14.00 and sell for \$21.00. In the past, at least 40 boxes have been sold by Valentine’s Day, but the actual amount is uncertain, and the owner has often run short or made too many. After the holiday, any unsold boxes are discounted 50% and are eventually sold. Set up and run a Monte Carlo simulation assuming that demand is triangular with minimum value=40, maximum value=50, and most likely value=47. Find the distribution of profit for order quantities between 40 and 50 to identify the best order quantity. Use 20 simulation trials.
3. Analyze the simulation model, with 50 trials, for Koehler Vision Associates (KVA) with the following assumptions. Assume that the no show rate is uniform, between 10% and 20% of prospective patients fail to show up or cancel their exam at the last minute. A \$250 charge is applied as a deposit for the actual procedure. Patients that do not show up are refunded the charged fee less a \$25 processing fee. KVA can handle 125 patients per week and is considering overbooking its appointments to reduce the lost revenue associated with cancellations. However, any patient that is overbooked may spread unfavorable comments about the company; thus, the overbooking cost is estimated to be \$125. Determine the averages for the net profit (revenue less overbooking costs) and number overbooked for taking appointments between 130 and 150 patients in increments of 2. What would you recommend?

A 7-10-page APA paper must be submitted which includes the sections below. Use the bullet
points below as an outline for the paper with each main bullet point as a Level 1 Header. Do not
include the wording in the parentheses.
 Prototype (This is a thorough description of your final prototype. But see below)
a. Construction (Tell me about the build process)
b. Description (Give me a general description of the glider)
 Flight Test Method (Give me a complete description of how you tested and modified your glider
to achieve the longest flight.)
 Results (Report the results of the flight testing. A table showing glide distances is a good
addition. Be sure to report average distance, average glide ratio (you may need to research what
this is), the longest and shortest flights)
 Discussion (Discuss the entire project. What did you learn? What worked and what did not
work?)
 Description of Fuselage (Give me a thorough description of the fuselage of your glider)
 Description of Wing (airfoil shape, planform shape, b, c , AR, mounting location and AOI)
 Description of Empennage (Give me a thorough description of the empennage of your glider)
 The last section must include a figure, the Three-View Drawing. This should include a top, side,
and front view of the glider. Dimensions must be included on the image. All three views should
be on one page of the paper.
This second assignment is meant to record the construction and flight testing of your glider
and to describe your final prototype design for the competition. This paper, like the first, is to be
APA formatted (to include a Title Page). As before, no abstract is necessary. No reference page
is necessary since you are doing hands-on research for this assignment.
Your goal during flight testing is to maximize the range of your glider through systematic
modifications and trial and error. Try and get the glider to glide as far as possible. This
includes recording measurements of glide distance and calculations of glide ratio. The results
section should include quantitative data such as number of flights, average glide distance and
average glide ratio. The discussion section should include your thoughts on the flight-testing
process: problems encountered, your assessment of the problem, corrective actions taken, and
projection of your gliders distance when thrown from a height of 19 feet, based upon your
average glide ratio.
Then, you will describe your competition glider in writing and show images representing
and know how to use one), Microsoft Paint, Microsoft Word (Draw Tools), or by hand (very
neatly using a straight edge on graph paper). The drawing should take up no more than one page
of the paper.
As before, this paper is to be submitted into a D2L Dropbox by the stated deadline. PAPER
#2 IS DUE ON NOVEMBER 28th
Glider Competition

Hi . Hope you are doing well. We purchased a commercial rental building last year and our tenant paid six months’ rent in advance in November of last year. The rent covered November and December of last year and the first four months of 20XX. I appreciated getting the cash up front but now that I have had time to think about it, will this cause a tax problem for us? How do we treat this prepaid rent for tax purposes?

ICW Part 2 – IRS Response Letter
Important Note: Please use the accompanying IRS Tax Notice (located In the ICW #6 Module) as the notice to which you will write your response letter.
You are a staff accountant for a local CPA firm, Meyers and Meyers, LLP. One of your clients,
Paula Evans contacted you in February of 2022 about a new partnership she formed with four
others. The partnership, Wildwood Acres Partnership, was started in the middle of 2020 and
reports on a calendar year basis (the tax year ends on December 31). Unfortunately, this was
a little late since the 2014 partnership return was due on April 15, 2021.
Paula provided the information and your office promptly prepared the return in late February,
2022. The transmittal letter to Paula included a paragraph warning her that the IRS would
probably assess penalties for late filing. Penalties for partnerships that file late are \$195 per
partner, per month (or any part thereof).
On March 29, 2022, Paula called and said she received a late filing penalty notice assessing
\$10,725. She faxed the notice to you for review. Based on your review, the assessed amount is
correct.
Facts regarding the partnership:
1. All five partners are individuals and US citizens.
2. All five partners timely filed their 2020 individual income tax returns in September 2021
and included their share of partnership taxable income.
3. All five partners are equal owners of the partnership
Paula wants you to respond to the IRS notice and request relief from the penalty.
Part 2 requirement: Prepare a response letter to the IRS requesting abatement of the penalties based
on Rev. Proc. 84-35. Be sure and reference any attachments you would include with the
response letter, even though you won’t be submitting the attachments on Turnitin.
Important: Combine the three email responses from Part 1 with your response letter from Part 2 Into a single document (Word or pdf) and submit via Turnitin. Your document should include each email response on a separate page (page 1 – response 1, page 2 – response 2, etc., followed by your IRS response letter on a separate page(s).

## Explain the Costs and Benefits of Implementing Green Computing One of the main d

Explain the Costs and Benefits of Implementing Green Computing
One of the main driving forces behind green computing is the potential savings in money, energy, and resources. However, these potential savings are sometimes hard to identify and track.
In this discussion, you will describe a case study of the practical implementation of green computing and examine both the costs and benefits of the implementation. A case study analyses a real-life situation where existing problems need to be solved or discussed. You can describe a real situation that you experienced or, if none, a real scenario from the literature.
please use Harvard referencing and include introduction and conclusion (600 – 700 wrords)
