Unit 5 Discussion (ACC111)

Word has gotten around that you know accounting and can explain it well.  Jim, another of your friends has a unique business.  During the summer he buys hats that cost $5.00 each and sells them at the beach for $12.00 each.  Other than the cost of the hat, his only other expense last summer was $120 for parking.  He sold 78 hats last summer.  His accountant prepared a financial statement for him and he has several questions about the income statement.  He asks:

  1. What does the cost of goods sold and gross profit mean?
  2. How much gross profit do I make on each hat?
  3. Why show both gross profit and net income?
  4. Using Jim’s figures, calculate his cost of goods sold, gross profit and net income – SHOW YOUR CALCULATIONS

If I have hats returned or a give a discount, how will that be shown on the income statement?

Unit 5 DB: Note-Taking and Types of Reading (CTC101)

  • Covey’s 3rd habit, Put First Things First, means recognizing that your time, energy, and resources are limited. How would you prioritize reading in your schedule?

Unit 5 DB: Convince us of your conflict (ENG130)

Initial Response: Jackson, Dick, and Atwood brilliantly incorporate the conflict of Man vs. Society, but which one does it better?

  1. In one to two paragraphs, argue which of the Unit 5 authors best portrays the conflict of Man vs. Society and HOW (you might like to do some more research on The Handmaid’s Tale to write about Atwood). This is a great practice for your upcoming Position Paper. 
  2. Share a modern-day piece of literature (new story, article, video, movie, novel, etc.) that supports your response and is a direct connection to the story you choose. Be sure to post the link to your modern piece of literature and explain how it connects to your chosen author/story.
