GBA 334 Application Assignment 1 Instructions

Application assignments require solving problems from the textbook. Most of the problems require that you use Excel QM. Some chapters will require you to use POM QM for Windows or TreePlan. The answers must be submitted to the Dropbox in a Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel file.

You must state your answers within a complete sentence so that your understanding of applying the results of the computations can be observed. You should also include the work for your computation; this will assist in applying partial credit if your answers are not correct.

Do not submitQM for Windows files as server security policies do not allow many ofthese files to be passed in the system. If you need to show the QM work, either save as an Excel file (a function within QM) or paste a screen capture of the QM Entry Screen before solving AND the QM result screen(s).

NOTE: QM files should not be sent through the online system. If using QM for yoursolution, run the file in QM and then copy and paste the solution into a MS Excel file (within QM there is an option tab at bottom of the screen to save as MS Excel.) If you cannot do this, with the QM solution file open on your screen, select alt-print screen and then paste the image into a MS Excel file.

If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact your instructor. He or she will be happy to assist.

· Chapter 1, page 18, Problems 22 and 23 using Excel

Golden Age Retirement Planners specializes in providing financial advice for people planning for a comfortable retirement. The company offers seminars on the important topic of retirement planning. For a typical seminar, the room rental at a hotel is \$1,000, and the cost of advertising and other incidentals is about \$10,000 per seminar. The cost of the materials and special gifts for each attendee is \$60 per person attending the seminar.

How many people must attend each seminar for Golden Age to break even?”

Problem 23

“A couple of entrepreneurial business students at State University decided to put their education into practice by developing a tutoring company for business students. While private tutoring was offered, it was determined that group tutoring before tests in the large statistics classes would be most beneficial. The students rented a room close to campus for \$300 for 3 hours. They developed handouts based on past tests, and these handouts (including color graphs) cost \$5 each. The tutor was paid \$25 per hour, for a total of \$75 for each tutoring session.

(a) If students are charged \$20 to attend the session, how many students must enroll for the company
to break even?

(b) A somewhat smaller room is available for \$20 0for 3 hours. The company is considering this
possibility. How would this affect the break-even point?”

Problem 43

Problem 45
