honestly I'm not sure what you would price a project like this. I can also attach the guideline and examples for the project if needed thanks.
The course final project is designed for you to apply the software application skills you acquired during the term. For this project, you will use all four of the Microsoft Office 2016 applications to create a unified project on a single topic. Although the instructions below are not step-by-step approach to the project, they serve as a rubric for you to include all of the required elements, and to demonstrate your skill and ability to use the four applications.
The previous assignments you completed should have instructed you how to carry out various functions in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. If you need assistance with “how to do something in one of the Office applications” return to your previous assignments in the MyITLab trainings and review how it was done in that assignment. Consult your instructor if you have questions about this project or how to complete any of the specific requirements.
You must use the following software applications to create the final project:
Microsoft Word 2016
Microsoft Excel 2016
Microsoft PowerPoint 2016
Microsoft Access 2016
No other versions of Microsoft Office may be used. If you're missing any of the above applications, keep in mind that the computers in the Open Use Computer Labs (YBOR 303B or YFAC 229) have all of these applications available for your use.
You may select any topic that is of interest to you. The course instructor must approve your topic before you begin working on it--be sure to obtain his/her permission sooner rather than
later. Remember that your project will cover ONE topic. You will use ALL of the Microsoft Office applications to create content related to your chosen topic.
Some examples of project topics include an overview of
• a business plan,
• planning for and attending college,
• a particular sport or sports team,
• moving out on your own,
• researching your planned career,
• planning for a dream vacation or a wedding,
• an informative overview of a particular country or culture,
• a specific passion in your life, etc.
Project Minimum Requirements
The minimum requirements for each of the four applications are detailed in the checklists below.
Each application component is valued at 30 points. However, to earn full points for each you must demonstrate professionalism and creativity.
The project is an opportunity for the student to put forth a strong effort to demonstrate professionalism and creativity in applying the software skills acquired during the term. Professionalism and creativity are measured in various ways, including
• proper use of grammar, spelling, and sentence structure,
• overall completeness and cohesion of the final project,
• extra effort in applying additional skills covered in the course but not listed as a minimum,
• adding additional graphics or pictures without distracting from the message,

Imagine that you work for the maker of a leading brand of low-calorie frozen, microwavable food that estimates the following demand equation for its product using data from 26 supermarkets around the country for the month of April.
For a refresher on independent and dependent variables, please go to Sophia’s Website and review the Independent and Dependent Variables tutorial, located at http://www.sophia.org/tutorials/independent-and-dependent-variables--3.Note: The following is a regression equation. Standard errors are in parentheses for the demand for widgets.
QD = -2,000 - 100P + 15A + 25PX + 10I
(5,234) (2.29) (525) (1.75) (1.5) R2 = 0.85 n = 120 F = 35.25
ECO 550 – Assignments and Rubrics
Your supervisor has asked you to compute the elasticities for each independent variable. Assume the
following values for the independent variables:
Q = Quantity demanded of 3-pack units
P (in cents) = Price of the product = 200 cents per 3-pack unit
PX (in cents) = Price of leading competitor’s product = 300 cents per 3-pack unit
I (in dollars) = Per capita income of the standard metropolitan statistical area
(SMSA) in which the supermarkets are located = $5,000
A (in dollars) = Monthly advertising expenditures = $640
Write a four to six (4-6) page paper in which you:
1. Compute the elasticities for each independent variable. Note: Write down all of your calculations.
2. Determine the implications for each of the computed elasticities for the business in terms of shortterm
and long-term pricing strategies. Provide a rationale in which you cite your results.
3. Recommend whether you believe that this firm should or should not cut its price to increase its
market share. Provide support for your recommendation.
4. Assume that all the factors affecting demand in this model remain the same, but that the price
has changed. Further assume that the prices are 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 cents.
a) Plot the demand curve for the firm.
b) Plot the corresponding supply curve on the same graph using the following MC/supply
function Q = -7909.89 + 79.0989P with the same prices.
c) Determine the equilibrium price and quantity.
d) Outline the significant factors that could cause changes in supply and demand for the
product. Determine the primary manner in which both the short-term and the long-term
changes in market conditions could impact the demand for, and the supply, of the
5. Indicate the crucial factors that could cause rightward shifts and leftward shifts of the demand and
