1. MFC Corporation has 100,000 shares of stock outstanding. Following is part of MFC's Statement of Financial Position for the last fiscal year.

MFC Corporation             Statement of Financial Position - Selected Items

December 31, 2006

Cash                                                   \$455,000
Accounts receivable                                900,000
Inventory                                               650,000
Prepaid assets                                           45,000
Accrued liabilities                                     285,000
Accounts payable                                        550,000

Current portion, long-term notes payable                   65,000

What is the maximum amount MFC can pay in cash dividends per share and maintain a minimum current ratio of 2 to 1? (Assume that all accounts other than cash remain unchanged.)
\$2.50 per share

To determine the maximum amount that MFC can pay in cash dividends per share and maintain a minimum current ratio of at least 2 to 1, you must set up an algebraic problem based on the current ratio formula:

Total Current Assets ÷ Total Current Liabilities = Current Ratio

We know Total Current Liabilities equals \$900,000 and our desired minimum current ratio is 2.0.

We also know cash dividends reduce cash, which reduces Current Assets, and have no affect on Current Liabilities.

Replace these terms with these values and solve for Total Current Assets.If Total Current Assets ÷ \$900,000 = 2.0, then Total Current Assets = \$1,800,000

If Total Current Assets are now \$2,050,000, a maximum of \$250,000 may be paid out in cash dividends to keep Total Current Assets from dropping below \$1,800,000 (\$2,050,000 - \$1,800,000 = \$250,000).

\$250,000 of cash dividends divided by 100,000 of stock outstanding equals \$2.50 per share (\$250,000 ÷ 100,000 = \$2.50).

14. A delivery company is implementing a system to compare the costs of purchasing and operating different vehicles in its fleet. Truck 415 is driven 125,000 miles per year at a variable cost of \$0.13 per mile. Truck 415 has a capacity of 28,000 pounds and delivers 250 full loads per year. What amount is the truck’s delivery cost per pound?
.00232

The truck has a variable cost of \$0.13 per mile × 125,000 miles, or \$16,250 per year. It delivers 28,000 pounds × 250 loads, or 7,000,000 pounds a year.

Dividing the annual cost of \$16,250 by 7,000,000 pounds delivered each year gives a cost of \$0.00232 per pound delivered.
15. A company employing an online computer system has CRT terminals located in all operating departments for inquiry and updating purposes. Many of the company's employees have access to and are required to use the CRT terminals.

apply a compatibility test to transactions or inquiries entered by the user.

18. For the current-period production levels, Woodwork Co. budgeted 11,000 board feet of production and purchased 15,000 board feet. The material cost was budgeted at \$7 per foot. The actual cost for the period was \$8.50 per foot. What was Woodwork's material price variance for the period?
unfavorable  22,500

The material price variance is the comparison of what was actually spent with what was expected to have been spent for the actual amount purchased—comparison shopping, so to speak.

Spending variance = (Actual price - Standard price) × Actual quantity

= (\$8.50 - \$7.00) × 15,000 ft.  = \$22,500 U

-->Spending variance = (Actual price - Standard price) x Actual quantity

= (\$8.50 - \$7.00) x 15,000 ft.

= \$22,500 U

The variance is unfavorable (U) since the price per foot was more than expected.

Since it is best to isolate variance as soon as possible, the material price variance is calculated at the time of purchase as opposed to when the materials are added in the production process
