This paper will determine the year-to-year percentage annual growth in total net sales for the Micro Chip Corporation. It will also determine if the company achieved its sales goal of +10% annual revenue growth in 2009. As well, it will determine the target revenue figure, and give an opinion if whether or not the company hit its target. In order to calculate these figures, this paper will consider Micro Chip's Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended September 25, 2008 and then use the Percentage Sales Method and a 25% increase in sales to forecast Micro Chip's Consolidated Statement of Operations for the period of September 26, 2008 through September 25, 2009 by assuming a 15% tax rate and restructuring costs of 5% of the new sales figure.

Micro Chip Corporation

1. Determine the year-to-year percentage annual growth in total net sales.
To calculate the year to year percentage annual growth in total net sales, one would use this formula.
(current year-previous year)*100/previous year = percentage annual growth in total net sales.
Year Net Sales Percentage Growth
2004 $11,062
2005 $11,933 ($11,933 - $11,062) x 100 / $11,062 = 7.87%
2006 $9,181 ($9,181-$11,933) x 100 / $11933 = -23.06%
2007 $6,141 ($6,141-$9,181) x 100 / $9,181 = -33.11%
2008 $8,334 ($8,334-$6,141) x 100 / $6,141 = 35.71%

2. Based only on your answers to question #1, do you think the company achieved its sales goal of +10% annual revenue growth in 2009? Determine the target revenue figure, and explain why you do or do not feel that the company hit its target.
The target figure would be 10% more of the $8,334 net sales in 2008.
$8,334 + 10% = $9,167
With sales declining in 2006 and 2007, added with the slight growth in 2008, it…...

...English Composition 1 Unit 2 Individual Project There are many different types of bully breeds in the world today but there is one specific breed that has been getting a lot of bad publicity here lately. The American Staffordshire terrier, also known as the pit bull is one of today’s most feared dogs alive. But why is that? In the next page or two I will share with you my personal experiences and a little bit of history behind the pit bull. Since the late 1800s pit bulls have been loved and feared at the same time. Some love to hate them and some just love them. Those that love to hate them never really do any true research on the animal if they did they would find out a lot about the dog that they did not know already. Pit bulls are loving dogs that just want to be loved back. Not all pit bulls are mean or vicious as most would like to call them. It’s all in how the animal is raised, if an owner raises a dog to be mean and fight then that’s all the dog will know. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pit bull or a poodle; any dog can be trained to be the sweetest dog in the world or the meanest dog that you will ever meet. We have all encountered a wide variety of dogs, some sweet some shy or skittish or some meaner than a mad momma when her child has been mistreated. In my life time there are many dogs that have approached me and was mean, then there was the ones that were as sweet as a new born baby.......

The revenue that is expected for 2009 is $9,167.40. According to the annual percentage growth rate, it is not likely that the business will reach its sales prediction. For 2008, the business had a very large growth rate. This business had a small growth rate that was barely more than 2 % of the 10 % goal for 2005, and a somewhat strong negative growth for 2006 and 2007. The sales trend is pointing downwards. Following 2005, the average annual growth rate has been -3.15 % during the last 4 years. According to the financial data sheet, I do not feel that Micro Chip Computer Corporation will achieve a 10 % sales goal for 2009. 1. Current % of Sales 2008/2009 Prediction Sales $8,334-$10,000 Cost of Sales $5,458 multiplied by 100 and then divided by $8,334 equals 65.5%, 65.5% of $10,000 equals $6,550.

...MGMT350-1301A-02 Professional Business Development Unit 2 IP In years past I was always taught to show the hiring manager you mean business and truly want the job you should pick up the phone. As a matter of fact I was instructed to do so over and over again. But in this day in age email seems to be the more efficient than voicemail. In the age of facebook and twitter, you are much more likely to get quicker responses via email. To add another bonus to the innovation the response is more likely to be a positive one ( I believe this to be true because most hiring managers are very busy. Email makes it much easier for management to be responsive. And; this medium makes you look less like a pest and more like the partner they are looking to hire. However, there is an art form to developing a relationship with the hiring manager using this impersonal medium. Your email should set the tone in the introductory. For example: “Hello Ms. Tate, my name is Adrian Watson. I hope things are well with you. I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am interested in a career with your company and hoped to discuss any current openings. I understand that your schedule is likely very tight; I would be more than happy to stop by in person or have a quick phone conversation. Would you be available July 25th at 2:00 p.m.?” An email like that may very well earn you a response. And in inquiring about any potential opening within the...

...Unit 2 Individual Project AIU Online HUMA205 June 21, 2013 Abstract I will compare and contrast two works of art using concepts I am learning about for evaluating art. The two works of art I chose to compare are The Eros Sleeping at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Aphrodite at the Louvre Musuem. The Eros Sleeping is my first choice for a piece of art between 30,000 B.C. and 500 C.E. I think this is a beautiful piece of art. While looking through thousands and thousands works of art at several different museum sites this piece really caught my eye. The Eros Sleeping is a bronze statue from the Hellenistic period, and dated at the 3rd-2nd century B.C. It is one of a few bronze statues to have survived from antiquity. The statue is of a cute little chubby baby with wings asleep on a rock that was added at a later date. (Eros Sleeping, nd) The second work of art I chose was also from the Hellenistic period and was dated to 100 B. C is The Aphrodite. Aphrodite is a beautiful Greek sculpture of a half- naked woman sort of leaning to one side. (Aphrodite, nd) Two blocks of marble were used to make it. Her arms were never found. Both piece to me are masterpieces, but kind of hard to compare. The Eros Sleeping is made out of bronze whereas Aphrodite is made out of marble. Both pieces are three dimensional. Neither piece has any color but I have read that the Aphrodite once wore metal jewelry. She wore a headband, earrings, and a bracelet. ......

Phase 2 Ip

...Phase 2 Individual Project The Cornell method of note taking is very thorough. I liked it because the summary portion makes it easy to quickly review your notes without going in to full detail, and still be able to grasp concepts. I did not like the fact that you had to do the questions/keywords after you took the notes. This, to me at least, felt backwards from what I am used to and it became more time consuming for me because of that. I liked the outline method because of the way it flows with the text that I was reading. I disliked the outline method because actually typing it out, all of the letters and numbers get a little bit confusing and it almost takes away from the different points. My preferred method for note taking out of the two would be outline. It is easier to type and you can quickly look at key concepts. It is visually more appealing to me. Outlining your notes also seems to allow you to pack in more details than I was able to put into the Cornell notes. After reading chapter eight, I feel that I am a visual learner. I think that since I am a visual learner it makes sense that I would prefer the notes that are more visually appealing. I read that a visual learner should summarize information in visual formats such as short sentences or bullet points, which to me would be more like an outline. This also makes sense because I learned that visual learners are better at remembering what they read if it is written in descriptive text and with outlines you......

I will introduce a new 1.5 gigabyte computer memory chip on behalf of EEC while using a job order costing system, which is a costing system where costs are to be collected then assigned to different units of production for each unique job, or process costing system, which is a costing system that is known to accumulate production costs by using a department or process’s data over a specific period of time in order to report the costs of a new product. I am going to focus and highlight the many differences within the various systems in use to do this job. I will also attempt to describe how these selected systems will work for EEC in order to track the costs of these products. Furthermore, my job in this assignment will be to identify the actual cost driver in order to explain the pattern and process of cost tracking. I will then go on to provide examples of products that the EEC’s firm could offer in order for a job-order costing system to be appropriately applied. •Should EEC use a job-order costing system, which is a costing system where costs are collected and assigned to units of production for each individual job, or a process costing system, which is a costing system that accumulates production......

Nt1210 Unit 2 Ip Address

...IP addresses: Networks and hosts ( An IP address is a 32-bit number that uniquely identifies a host (computer or other device, such as a printer or router) on a TCP/IP network. IP addresses are normally expressed in dotted-decimal format, with four numbers separated by periods, such as To understand how subnet masks are used to distinguish between hosts, networks, and subnetworks, examine an IP address in binary notation. For example, the dotted-decimal IP address is (in binary notation) the 32 bit number 110000000101000111101110000100. This number may be hard to make sense of, so divide it into four parts of eight binary digits. These eight bit sections are known as octets. The example IP address, then, becomes 11000000.10101000.01111011.10000100. This number only makes a little more sense, so for most uses, convert the binary address into dotted-decimal format ( The decimal numbers separated by periods are the octets converted from binary to decimal notation. For a TCP/IP wide area network (WAN) to work efficiently as a collection of networks, the routers that pass packets of data between networks do not know the exact location of a host for which a packet of information is destined. Routers only know what network the host is a member of and use information stored in their route table to determine how to get the packet to the destination host's network. After the packet......

...Phase 2 IP By: Tiffany Geisler Class: ECON210 Colorado Online University Gross Domestic Product or GDP is an economic indicator used to measure a countries status of economic development & status as well as performance. It incorporates the total market value of all the goods and services produced within a particular country. It is calculated on an annual basis which incorporates public consumption, investments, imports & exports, government spending, and private consumption within a defined area (Chron, 2014). PART 1 Country A’s GDP: 140,000 cars Country A’s consumption of GDP by percentage = 64.28% Country A’s GDP per capita = .28 cars Keynesian economics states that government can influence the aggregate demand through intervention policies to stabilize the economy in times of excessive inflation and deflation (Boundless, 2014). During periods of low demand, country A’s government can provide tax breaks to individuals and/or industry to increase buying potential and increase spending as well as purchase additional cars to boost the country’s economy. This process can be worked in reverse in time of excess demand to slow down the economy. PART 2 According to the latest release from the U S Department of commerce Bureau of Economic Analysis, the United States GDP is rising and the country’s Gross Domestic Income (GDI) is rising. This indicates that the current business cycle is in an expansion phase. The real GDP today is......

...demand refers to goods that have a big change in demand due to a change in price. Inelastic demand refers to goods that have little if any change in demand due to a change in price. Demand is said to be elastic when elasticity is more than one which occurs when the percentage of change in the quantity demanded is more than the percentage of change in price. Demand is said to be inelastic when the elasticity is less than one which occurs when the percentage of change in the quantity demanded is less than the percentage of change in price. You can assume that flowers are elastic. To further understand this you can look at a laptop. When the price is increased by 20% and the quantity demanded drops by 40% you see that the price elasticity is 2 which is elastic. Remember price elasticity of demand is found by dividing the percent change in the quantity demanded by the percent change in the price. Now look at what happens to a pack of cigarettes. If the price increases by 10% and there is a 5% drop in the quantity demanded the price elasticity is 0.5 which is inelastic. A laptop is more elastic than a pack of cigarettes one reason is the amount of income one uses to purchase the specific good. A change to the price of a laptop is more significant than a change to the price of cigarettes. Elasticity is an important concept for business because it helps then get the most profit possible. It allows a business to understand how the consumers will react to a change in price and allows......

...AIU Online September 19, 2012 Unit 2 Individual Project Latin was a large impact on the medieval ways. For very many years it was dominating the western world. The Latin language spread wherever the Roman Empire ruled. Around 1200 A.D. the empire began to fall and the Latin language began to fade. The people farthest away began to undergo the changes first and the ethical renewal began. Many individuals choose to use their vernacular language rather than Latin. In England they returned to old English with great influence from Alfred the Great. While in power he had written many books in old English; including many religious pieces. Beowulf and the Anglo Saxton Chronicles are also examples of literature written in old English. These pieces incorporated Latin characters. The English had many vernaculars during this time period. Your vernacular language depended on you social class. Lower classes tended to speak English. Traveling entertainers and many judicial situations utilized the vernacular in spoken form in France. A large percentage of the vernacular in France was romance; which stemmed from individuals jotting down stories as they were told by musicians that were passing through. Some of the oldest pieces date back to Charlemagne during the twelfth century. Germany used vernacular as early as the eighth century. Many attempts made to convert failed and was not accepted.
