Answer 1

Answer: The correct answer is "a. decisions under risk.".

Explanation: The decision situations wherein the decision-maker chooses to consider several possible outcomes and the probabilities of their occurrence can be stated are called decisions under risk.

Decision-making under risk is one of the three possible decision-making scenarios based on the available information, this scenario presents an intermediate situation between decision-making under certainty or under uncertainty: each alternative, strategy or course of action has several possible consequences, but the person in charge of making the decision knows the probability of each of them.

Microeconomics is a study that shows individual economic actors, such as consumers, households and firms, in decision-making. This is on an individual level. But MACROECONOMICS shows the national economy as a whole which is the aggregate outcomes of those individual decisions. So the increase in consumer confidence is macroeconomics since it raises the overall level of consumption. This is because macroeconomics studies price levels, inflation and is concerned about the general economy factor using the rate of economic growth, national income, aggregate measures of gross domestic product (GDP) to show the results of individual, micro-level decisions.




The following items are reported on a company's balance sheet: Cash $210,000 Marketable securities 120,000 Accounts receivable (net) 110,000 Inventory 160,000 Accounts payable 200,000 Determine (a) the current ratio and (b) the quick ratio. Round your answers to one decimal place.



a. The current ratio: 3.0

b. The quick ratio: 2.2


a. The current ratio is calculated by using following formula:

Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities

In the company,

Current Assets = Cash + Marketable securities + Accounts receivable + Inventory = $210,000 + $120,000 + $110,000 + $160,000 = $600,000

Current Liabilities = Accounts payable = $200,000

Current Ratio = $600,000/$200,000 = 3.0

b. The quick ratio is calculated by the following formula:

Quick ratio = (Cash & equivalents + Short Term investments + Accounts receivable)/Current Liabilities  = ($210,000 + $120,000 + $110,00)/$200,000 = 2.2
