Pei's savings account balance is $12,000 today. Pei opened the account exactly 7 years ago with a $10,000 deposit. Pei has made no other deposits or withdrawals. What annual interest rate (compounded annually) has the account earned?


Answer 1




A = P(1 + r)^n

A = $12,000

P = $10,000

n = 7 years

12,000 = 10,000(1 + r)^7

(1 + r)^7 = 12,000/10,000 = 1.2

(1 + r)^7 = 1.2

1 + r = (1.2)^1/7

I + r = 1.0264

r = 1.0264 - 1 = 0.0264

r = 0.0264 × 100 = 2.64%

You purchase a raffle ticket to help out a charity. The raffle ticket costs $5. The charity is selling 2000 tickets. One of them will be drawn and the person holding the ticket will be given a prize worth $4000. Compute the expected value for this raffle.





Data provided in the question:

Cost of raffle ticket = $5

Number of tickets sold = 2000

Probability of winning = 1 ÷ 2000 = 0.0005

Winning prize = $4,000


The expected value of prize =  Probability of winning × Winning prize

= 0.0005 × $4,000

= $2


The expected value for this raffle

= expected value prize - Cost of raffle ticket

= $2 - $5

= -$3

Fixed costs are $1300000 and the variable costs are 80% of the unit selling price. What is the break-even point in dollars?



the break-even point in dollars is $6,500,000


The computation of the break even point in dollars is shown below;

As we know that

Break even point in dollars is

= Fixed cost ÷ contribution margin ratio

Since the variable cost is 80%, so the contrbibution margin is 20% so that the total selling price would be 100%


= $1,300,000 ÷ 20%

= $6,500,000

Hence, the break-even point in dollars is $6,500,000

Your order is supposed to be delivered between 5PM-6PM, and it’s now 5:45PM. You’re stuck in a long line waiting to check out. In this situation, you will be late delivering the order. Provide an example of the text message you would send to the member.



If I am stuck in a long line waiting to check out and I was supposed to deliver the parcel between 5 PM to 6 PM, then I will text the receiver telling him about my problem and tell him that his order will be delivered late and will give him a time boundary. My text message to him will look like the following:

Hi Sir/Madam,

This is abc from xyz company. Your parcel was scheduled to deliver between 5 PM to 6 PM, but due to some uncertain situation, there is a short delay in the delivery. Your parcel is hoped to deliver within the next one hour.

Your patience will be highly appreciated, and apologies for the delay.

Best Regards.

A sample of the text message sent to apologize for the delay would look like this:

This is ABC from XYZ company. Your parcel was scheduled to deliver between 5 PM to 6 PM, but due to some unforeseen delays, we would deliver within the next hour.

Your patience will be highly appreciated, and apologies for the delay.

What is an Apology?

This is a statement that shows that a person is sorry for the action and would want to rectify the situation.

Hence, we can see that based on the hypothetical situation about sending a parcel and not delivering on time, an apology text needs to be sent and it is shown above.
