# If x units of a product cost C dollars to make and revenue of R dollars, the value of x where the expression for C and R are equal is called the break even quantity, the number of units that produce zero profit. C=16x-20000, R=14x

Set C = R
This means 16X - 20000 = 14X
Add -16X to both sides
-20000 = -2X
Divide both sides by -2
10000 = X

This means that the break even point is 10000 units.

### Why Is An interest Rate Required If Borrowers Are Told The Dollar Value Of The Loan?

The dollar cost and monthly amounts are significant only relative to a specific business loan amount. Dollar cost doesn't allow borrowers to evaluate expenses throughout specific loan amounts, or evaluate the typical prices of different lenders. Interest rates describe the cost irrespective of loan size.

### How do you use the equal sign on the ti-84

The equal sign of the TI83/84/Plus is a relational operator like less than , greater than, less than or equal to) You use it when you are testing if two values (numbers, expressions, or matrices) are equal.
For example, if in one your programs what you do at a certain time depends on the equality of two expressions, you test the equality by a statement :
If A=B do this action.

### What are the equations and its kinds?

Definition

A mathematical statement used to evaluate a value. An equation can use any combination of mathematical operations, including addition, subtraction, division, or multiplication. An equation can be already established due to the properties of numbers (2 + 2 = 4), or can be filled solely with variables which can be replaced with numerical values to get a resulting value. For example, the equation to calculate return on sales is: Net income ÷ Sales revenue = Return on Sales. When the values for net income and sales revenue are plugged into the equation, you are able to calculate the value of return on sales.

There are many types of mathematical equations.

1. Linear Equations y= mx + b (standard form of linear equation)
2. Quadratic Equations y= ax^2+bx+c
3. Exponential Equations y= ab^x
4. Cubic Equations y=ax^3+ bx^2+cx+d
5. Quartic Equations y= ax^4+ bx^3+ cx^2+ dx+ e
6. Equation of a circle (x-h)^2+(y-k)^2= r^2
7. Constant equation y= 9 (basically y has to equal a number for it to be a constant equation).
8. Proportional equations y=kx; y= k/x, etc.

### Give 5 examples of classification of technology

Hello, Mikee Manala:

This sounds like a test question, so let's get you started.

The basic classes of technology are processes, products and tools.

A process is the actual physical operation necessary to produce an effect. The process can be in the form of an action (sports, entertainment, performances), the use of tangible goods, or services, or financial objects (renting, advertising, credit lines), or the creation of goods (food, clothes, shelter, xbox).

In order for a process to be continued, it must realize a value or generate a profit, otherwise it is left behind as a toy or curiosity. Some processes achieve product status without the creation of tangible value, such as entertainments and games. A product is a good or service which will provide revenue, income, or cash for the provider. Financial service offers literally thousands of products in the form of the use of financial objects, such as credit cards and mortgage points. House paint, and the services of the person actually applying that paint to the walls, are both products.

Tools are processes which enable a product to remain a product, and evolve that product so that it continues to be useful in more ways. The formula for a popular soft drink has not changed in over 100 years, but tools, such as advertising at sports and entertainment events, and computerized processing at the factory, keep the product alive and generating revenue. Tweaking the product to maintain marketability can have adverse affects, such as growing tobacco with higher levels of nicotine, and this is also a tool. Guarding gaming software involves much more technical tools, and sometimes thousands of people, because of its vulnerability to accidental or malicious interference.

When a product no longer generates more revenue than it costs to maintain it, the product disappears, or becomes an entertainment. Many times such products are an emotional event, such as a concert, opera or horse race, and can continue to generate revenue for an obsolete object, or one which will not change. Sometimes the product is a person, such as a famous actor or musician, who performs a service which would be less valued if performed by someone else.

This is also true for those who sell illegal and malicious substances. These criminals rely upon the emotional atmosphere created in group entertainment to induce others to buy drugs and alcohol, or maliciously give such substances for sport.

Now, I've given several examples of technology classifications in these 4 paragraphs, and also some factors which influence how these classifications are applied in different industries. Read over, then decide what makes each one different or the same. Don't get caught quoting. Good luck on your test.

### Cost of the product

The cost of the iPod touch depends on the capacity of the device. Generally the bigger the size, the more it costs.
8GB is \$229 32GB is \$299 64GB is \$399
If you want my opinion, the best value for your dollar is the 32GB device, by paying \$70 more than the 8GB unit, you get 4 times the storage.
Note: All currencies are in USD. For more information on the product, go to Apple's website (a simple Google search should direct you to your region).

### Casio fx-7400G PLUS cubic solver?

Hi,
First let us repair the terminology.

1. You can evaluate any expression (find the value of any expression for a particular value of its variable).Store a value in the variable, say X. Key in the expression and press [EXE].
2. You can consider your expression(should not contain a relational operator such as =, greater than, less than, greater than or equal to, less than or equal to) to be a function Y1(x) = expression and graph it, or generate a table for it. You will have several values of the function calculated at various points.
3. You can set your expression equal to 0 and find the particular value(s) of the variable (the unknown) that make the equality TRUE. That is called solving an equation.
I am not sure that it has a solver (solving an equation or an inequation) but you can always draw your expression as a function and explore the graph (SKTCH) to locate the roots (or zeros) of the functions (the values of the variable where the function equals zero.) That is called solving graphically.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa and for rating this solution.

Total parts, and service call will equal \$218.00

DIY will be cheaper. Parts cost will be \$88.00, and a little sweat equity.

### MS Access: Zero value to display as "New"

Is that field a resultant of an expression or it will be filled manually? If it is a manually updated field then use the following expression in the code builder.

If ok.Value = "0" Then
ok.Value = "New"
End If
If the field is a resultant of an expression then add some more lines similar to above to get required results.
