this is the 2 people project, I mainly need the responses for the questions #3

Assignment Requirements
1. Groups: You may work in groups of two (2) people for this assignment. Please hand
in a single paper (that is, one paper per team). If you would like to work with someone,
but do not feel comfortable asking someone else in class to work with you, email me
and I will randomly match people who would like to be randomly matched with a
teammate.
2. Due Date: You must email me your assignment by 5:00 PM on Monday, May
9th.
3. Formatting: Please type up your responses, and format any statistical results in
readable tables. That is, DO NOT send me screen captures of Stata output from your
computer screen. I have no preference between single and double spacing. There are no
page requirements or limits, but please be reasonable (there is no reason this needs to
be 10 pages long). I would expect that about 4 pages (maybe less) would be sucient.
4. Do-File: Along with your typed paper, you must submit a Stata \do- le." A do- le
is simply a text le that contains all of the commands that you are asking Stata to
execute. These are the instructions that you pass along to the Stata software program.
5. log-File: Along with your typed paper, you must also submit a Stata \log- le." (:smcl
format). This is a le that records all of the output that is being printed to the screen.
This is a convenient way for you to store all of the results as you are writing your
paper. That is, you do not need to have Stata open as you are writing your paper.
Instead, you can run all of your commands, have the screen output printed to a log- le,
and then consult that as you write up your results.

Option 2 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

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.

 

Operations Decision: 

Using the regression results and the other computations from Assignment 1, determine the market structure in which the low-calorie frozen, microwavable food company operates.

Use the Internet to research two (2) of the leading competitors in the low-calorie microwavable food industry, and take note of their pricing strategies, profitability, and their relationships within the industry (worldwide).

Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:

  1. Outline a plan that will assess the effectiveness of the market structure for the company’s operations. In Assignment 1, the assumption was that the market structure [or selling environment] was perfectly competitive and that the equilibrium price was to be determined by setting QD equal to QS. You are now aware of recent changes in the selling environment that suggest an imperfectly competitive market where your firm now has substantial market power in setting its own “optimal” price. 2. Given that business operations have changed from the market structure specified in the original scenario in Assignment 1, determine two (2) likely factors that might have caused the change. Predict the primary manner in which this change would likely impact business operations in the new market environment.
  2. Analyze the short run and long cost functions for the low-calorie microwaveable food company given the cost functions below and suggest substantive ways in which the low-calorie food company may use this information in order to make decisions in both the short-run and the long-run.

TC = 160,000,000 + 100Q + 0.0063212Q2

VC = 100Q + 0.0063212Q2

MC= 100 + 0.0126424Q

More specifically:

  1. Determine the Average Total Cost function (ATC) where ATC = TC/Q.
  2. Determine the quantity (Q) associated with minimum ATC. (Hint: ATC is minimized when ATC = MC).
  3. Determine the minimum value of ATC.

Remember that to be profitable, the product’s price (P) must be greater than its average total cost (ATC) at the optimal level of output (Q).

  1. Determine the possible circumstances under which the company should discontinue operations. Suggest key actions that management should take in order to confront these circumstances. Provide a rationale for your response. (Hint: Your firm’s price must cover average variable costs in the short run and average total costs in the long run to continue operations.)
  2. Suggest one (1) pricing policy that will enable your low-calorie microwavable food company to maximize profits. Provide a rationale for your suggestion. (Hint: In Assignment 1, you determined your firm’s market demand equation. Now you need to and may not be copied, further distributed, or otherwise disclosed in whole or in part, without the expressed written permission of find the inverse demand equation. Having found that, find the Total Revenue function for your firm (TR is P x Q). From your firm’s Total Revenue function, then find your Marginal Revenue (MR) function.

Hint: Use the profit maximization rule MR = MC to determine your optimal price and optimal output level now that you have market power. Compare these values with the values you generated in Assignment 1. Is your price higher or lower? What about the quantity?

  1. Outline a plan, based on the information provided in the scenario that the company could use in order to evaluate its financial performance. Consider all the key drivers of performance, such as company profit or loss for both the short term and long term, and the fundamental manner in which each factor influences managerial decisions.

Hints:

(a) Calculate profit in the short run by using the price and output levels you generated in part 5. Optional: You may want to compare this to what profit would have been in Assignment 1 using the cost function provided here.

(b) Calculate profit in the long run by using the output level you generated in part 5 and cost data in part 3 and assuming that the selling environment will likely be very competitive. (Why would this be a valid assumption?)

  1. Recommend two (2) actions that the company could take in order to improve its profitability and deliver more value to its stakeholders. Outline, in brief, a plan to implement your recommendations.
  2. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia does not qualify as an academic resource.
Option 2 Note: The following is a regression equation. Standard errors are in parentheses for the demand for widgets.

 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.

  1. Recommend whether you believe that this firm should or should not cut its price to increase its

market share. Provide support for your recommendation.

  1. 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.

  1. a) Plot the demand curve for the firm.
  2. 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.

  1. c) Determine the equilibrium price and quantity.
  2. 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

product.

  1. Indicate the crucial factors that could cause rightward shifts and leftward shifts of the demand and

supply curves.

  1. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia does not

qualify as an academic resource.

1. In a competitive industry, the short-run average variable cost (AVC) of a firm is:

AVC = 600 – 20Q - 0.5Q2

a. Derive the firm’s short-run supply equation

b. Determine the minimum possible price (shut-down price) for the firm.

Hint: Competitive firm’s short-run supply curve is its MC curve. MC is the derivative of VC.

2. A small tractor producing firm’s total cost and demand equations are as follows

C = 37,500,000 + 5,000Q + 1.5Q2

P = 30,000 – Q

a. Find optimal output and price and its profit.

b. Because of an increased foreign competition, the demand falls permanently to:

P = 20,000 – Q

The firm is considering closing its plan immediately. By doing so, it can save $18 million of its

annual$37.5 million in fixed costs. Alternatively, it can continue to operate the plant for 12 months after

which if it shuts down it can walk away from its labor contracts and lease payments and incur no

continuing costs. Determine its most profitable or least-cost operating strategy.

During the global recession of 2008 and 2009, there were many accusations of unethical behavior by Wall Street executives, financial managers, and other corporate officers. At that time, an article appeared that suggested that part of the reason for such unethical business behavior may stem from the fact that cheating has become more prevalent among business students. The article reported that 86% of business students admitted to cheating at some time during their academic career as compared to 77% of non-business students.

 Cheating has been a concern of the dean of the College of Business at Rocky University for several years. Some faculty members in the college believe that cheating is more widespread at Rocky than at other universities, while other faculty members think that cheating is not a major problem in the college. To resolve some of these issues, the dean commissioned a study to assess the current ethical behavior of business students at Rocky. As part of this study, an anonymous exit survey was administered to a sample of 90 business students from this year’s graduating class. Responses to the following questions were used to obtain data regarding three types of cheating. 

During your time at Rocky, did you ever present work copied off the Internet as your own?

 

Yes        



No         

 

During your time at Rocky, did you ever copy answers off another student’s exam?

 

Yes        



No         

 

During your time at Rocky, did you ever collaborate with other students on projects that were supposed to be completed individually?

 

Yes        



No         

 

Any student who answered yes to one or more of these questions was considered to have been involved in some type of cheating. The complete data set is in the file named Rocky.

 

Managerial Report

 

Prepare a report (see below) for the dean of the college that summarizes your assessment of the nature of cheating by business students at Rocky University. Be sure to include the following seven (7) items in your report.

 

  1. To summarize the data, compute the proportion of all students the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female students that presented

    a. Work copied off the internet as their own

    b. Copied answers off another student’s exam

    c. Collaborated with other students on projects that were supposed to be completed individually. 

 

Then comment on your findings.

 

  1. Develop 95% confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who were involved in some type of cheating.
  2. Develop 95% confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who were involved in copying off the internet.
  3. Develop 95% confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who were involved in copying off another's exam.
  4. Develop 95% confidence intervals for the proportion of all students, the proportion of all male students, and the proportion of all female students who were involved in collaborating on individual project.
  5. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the proportion of all business students at Rocky University who were not involved in some type of cheating is less than that of all business students elsewhere.  Use α = 0.05.
  6. What advice would you give to the dean based upon your analysis of the data?
