...Julia is a senior at Tech, and she’s investigating different ways to finance her final year at school. She is considering leasing a food booth outside the Tech stadium at home football games. Tech sells out every home game, and Julia knows, from attending the games herself, that everyone eats a lot of food. She has to pay $1,000 per game for a booth, and the booths are not very large. Vendors can sell either food or drinks on Tech property, but not both. Only the Tech athletic department concession stands can sell both inside the stadium. She thinks slices of cheese pizza, hot dogs, and barbecue sandwiches are the most popular food items among fans and so these are the items she would sell. Most food items are sold during the hour before the game starts and during half time; thus it will not be possible for Julia to prepare the food while she is selling it. She must prepare the food ahead of time and then store it in a warming oven. For $600 she can lease a warming oven for the six-game home season. The oven has 16 shelves, and each shelf is 3 feet by 4 feet. She plans to fill the oven with the three food items before the game and then again before half time. Julia has negotiated with a local pizza delivery company to deliver 14-inch cheese pizzas twice each game – 2 hours before the game and right after the opening kickoff. Each pizza will cost her $6 and will include 8 slices. She estimates it will cost her $0.45 for each hot dog and $ 0.90 for each......

Julia Case Problem

...case. There are three products or variables in this problem that we must consider for purchase. X1 = number of pizza slices Julia should purchase X2 = number of hotdogs Julia should purchase X3 = number of barbecue sandwiches Julia should purchase. The reason why Julia is having a booth is to make some money. She wants to maximize her profit that she can get from selling the hotdogs, pizza, and barbeque sandwiches. The first thing to do is find the profit that Julia will make per Item. To find that per Item price, the cost of the Item will be subtracted from the selling price. Pizza: Julia can buy a pizza that contains 8 slices for 6$. That means each slice of pizza will cost her $0.75. She plans to sell each piece for 1.50. $1.50-$0.75= $0.75 profit Hot dog: $1.50 - $0.45 = $1.05 profit Barbecue Sandwiches: $2.25 - $0.90 = $1.35 profit The objective function can now be written since we have found the potential profit of each food item. The objective of this function is to maximize Z(profit). Z= $0.75x1 + $1.05x2 + $1.35X3 The Budget is one thing that has to be taken into consideration. Julia has $1,500 on hand to purchase and prepare food for the first home game. A constraint must be formed for the budget. Since the cost of each item and money available is know. It is easy to form the budget constraint. This shows the total cost to purchase each item $0.75X1 + $0.45X2 + $0.90X3. Since the idea is to remain within the......

Julia"S Food Booth

...Julia’s Food Booth, I feel that Julia should lease the food booth at the Tech stadium football games. Yes. Julia should lease the booth because she would potentially make a profit of $1150 ($2250-$1100) each game; this is more than what she needs to run the booth. In addition, because she has cash on hand of $1500 to purchase and prepare the food items for the first game, Julia would not have to use any of the money that she makes to buy ingredients for the next game. She could still use the cash that she has on hand to buy ingredients for the next game. Next, if Julia were to borrow some more money from a friend before the first game to purchase more ingredients, she could increase her profit. Julia should borrow $138.40, so that she can make an additional profit of $207.60. An allowable increase in the ‘budget’ constrains her from borrowing more money than this. Because the shadow price for the budget constraint is 1.50 and the allowable increase is 138.40, the budget can go up to 1638.40 and the profit would increase by 1.50 for every dollar that is added to the budget. Also, Julia should hire a friend of hers to help her for $100 per game. It would be physically difficult and probably too much for her to prepare all of the hot dogs and BBQs before the game and during half time. If she borrows the extra $138.40, she can use a portion of this money to pay her friend without losing out on any money. Lastly, although Julia is basing her analysis on the......

Suze Says She Lives by Her Credo, “People First, Then Money, Then Things.” What Do You Think She Means by That? What Does That Mean to You? Please Explain Your Answer.

...Suze says she lives by her credo, “People first, then money, then things.” What do you think she means by that? What does that mean to you? Please explain your answer. "People First, Then Money, Then Things," clarifies that when Suze says "People First," she means taking care of you first, not taking care of everybody else, as some people misinterpret it. You need to take care of yourself first. "People first" does not refer to your parents, your siblings, your children, your grandparents, your aunt, your uncle, your friends, your co-worker. You need to have food in your house to feed yourself, you need to have clothes in the closet to clothe yourself, and you need a roof over your head so you can sleep in a dry and safe home. I believe she's not referring to keeping stacks of money hidden in your mattress. Every person should be debt free, including a mortgage. Suze is just saying have an emergency fund, be prepared. That brings me to "then things." This means that once you have taken care of yourself first and you have all of the appropriate items in place financially speaking, then you can worry about things, like vacations, redecorating your bathroom, buying an expensive handbag, etc. I agree with this statement from Suze and it’s hard to understand and have a clear thought of what she’s trying to tell you. I believe I correctly got the point and think I understood her concept to the best of my abilities....

Julia's Food Booth

...determine if Julia Robertson, a senior at Tech, should finance her final year at Tech in part by opening a food booth outside the stadium at home football games. We are also asked to determine if she should borrow more money, hire preparation assistance and what could go wrong. Julia is considering opening a food booth outside the stadium at six (6) home football games at a booth rental charge of $1,000.00 per game. Due to existing regulations, she knows she can only sell food or drinks, not both. She has determined the most popular food items are slices of pizza, hot dogs and barbecue sandwiches and that most food sales occur during the hour before the game and during half-time. She has been able to secure a deal with a pizza delivery company to deliver 14” pizzas, 8 slices each, for $6.00 and, because of demand, she must prepare the other food in advance and keep it warm ahead of sales. She found that she can rent a warming oven with 16 shelves, each 3’ x 4’, for a seasonal cost of $600.00 or $100.00 per game. Julia has $1,500.00 available to purchase food for the first game. Thereafter she will use money from the previous game to purchase the necessary ingredients. She has decided this will be a worthwhile endeavor if she can make at least $1,000.00 in profit for each game after paying all expenses. The information we are given includes price of items to be sold, fixed costs, variable costs and constraints which are detailed in the chart on the next page. Some of......

...prospect of borrowing money before the first game. Yes, I do believe Julia would increase her profit if she borrowed money. The shadow price is $1.50 for each additional dollar she earns. The upper limit in the model that is given is $1,658.88. This means that Julia can borrow $158.88 from her friend, which gives her an extra profit of $238.32 or a total profit of $2,488.32. (C) Evaluate the prospect of paying a friend $100/game to assist. According to the information presented in (A) and (B), I do believe Julia should hire her friend for $100 per game. It would be difficult for Julia to prepare all of the food needed within the amount of time to reach her goal, so she will need the additional help. If she is borrowing extra money from another friend, she would be able to pay the help for the time spent helping at the game because the $158.88 she borrowed will allow her to do so.  (D) Analyze the impact of uncertainties on the model. An impact of uncertainty on the model would be that the weather could cause people to not attend the game. If the weather is rainy, then many people may not attend as they would if it was sunny. All together what if the game is cancelled because of weather? With this being an issue, Julia may not reach her goal of $1000 per game. In addition to the weather, the pizza company Julia negotiated the deal with could have a unknown problem with delivering their products to her. Also uncertainty is what if the friend she hired didn’t show......

...9, 2012 Julia Robertson who is a senior at Tech, she has been investigating different ways to finance her final year at school. She is considering leasing a booth at home games where she will be selling hotdogs, pizzas, BBQ sandwiches. In this report I will formulate and solve and L.P model, Evaluate the prospect of borrowing money before the first game, Evaluate the prospect of paying a friend $100/ game to assist, and finally analyze the impact of uncertainties on the model. In the Linear program, x1 will represent pizza, x2 will represent hotdogs, and x3 will represent BBQ. My first constraint in the Linear program was Budget. The maximum fund available for Julia purchase is $1500. The cost for pizza is that each pizza will cost her $6 and will include 8 slices so the calculation I did was 6/8=0.75 for the cost per pizza. The cost for a hotdog was .45 and for the cost for a BBQ sandwich was .90 which both were giving in the book. The constraint was 0.75x1+0.45x2+0.90x3< than equal to 1500. The second constraint was the Oven Space. The oven has 16 shelves, and each shelf is 3 feet by 4 feet. Julia has plans to fill the oven with the three food items before the game and then again before half time. The 3 feet by 4 feet I converted to square inches 3ft converted to square inches give me 36 and 4ft converted to square inches give me 48 and I just multiply them and it give me 1728 sq. inches. Then I will multiply the 1728 by the number of shelves she has......

The Poor and Their Money

...i The Poor and Their Money An essay about financial services for poor people Stuart Rutherford Institute for Development Policy and Management University of Manchester January 1999 The Department for International Development will be publishing this work in New Delhi during 1999. For further information contact Sukhwinder Arora at the Department for International Development, New Delhi, India. ii PREFACE Over the last 15 years initiatives to provide financial services to poor people (the ‘microfinance industry’) have come on by leaps and bounds in terms of size and reputation. Despite this, the industry is still only in its adolescence and our understanding of why and how poor and very poor people use microfinancial services ( and why many choose not to use the services that are available) remains partial at best. This essay takes the reader on a ‘voyage of discovery’ that seeks to both deepen her/his understanding and encourage her/him to apply that knowledge to the practice of microfinance. The voyage that Stuart Rutherford offers is a unique one based upon years of careful and detailed personal research. It does not take a deductive approach that develops a theoretical model of the financial behaviour of poor people. Nor does it follow the ‘case study plus best practice’ approach that has been favoured by many practitioners when they write of microfinance. Instead, it adopts an inductive approach - based on thousands of conversations and meetings......

Julias Food Booth

...Reasoning Julia Robertson is a senior at Tech University and wants to find a way to make extra money to finance her final year at school. She is considering leasing a food booth outside the Tech stadium during home football games. Julia knows the games sell out and the crowd eats a lot of food. Julia has spoken with Ken a consultant and has agreed to investigate her leasing a food booth. Ken will look at the following items to determine if it is a good decision. The first item is creating an L.P. model (linear progression) to help understand the constraints and how to maximize her profit. Julia was asking if she should borrow money from a friend so this will also be evaluated. Julia wants to hire friend to help her with the booth and she is uncertain about the impact of the model. By looking at the L.P. model Ken can determine her best course of action and if she should lease the booth. The first step is to create the L.P. model to determine an objective function. The objective function ken determines to use is Max Z= .75p+1.05h+1.35b which can be done by looking at the information available such as items being sold, how much those items cost Julia to buy, how much she plans to sell each item for, looking at how one item can sell as much as or more than another item. Julia wants to sell Pizza, Hot Dogs, and Bar-B-Q sandwiches. Julia is going to have a Pizza company deliver a 14 inch Pizza twice each game which will cost her $6.00, Julia estimates it will cost her $0.45......

...Introduction Julia is a senior at Tech, and she’s investigating different ways to finance her final year at school. She is considering leasing a food booth outside the Tech stadium at home football games. Tech sells out every home game, and Julia knows, from attending the games herself, that everyone eats a lot of food. She has a booth, and the booths are not very large. Vendors can sell either food or drinks on Tech property, but not both. Only the Tech athletic department concession stands can sell both inside the stadium. She thinks slices of cheese pizza, hot dogs, and barbecue sandwiches are the most popular food items among fans and so these are the items she would sell. If Julia clears at least $1,000 in profit for each game after paying all her expenses, she believes it will be worth leasing the booth. A. Formulate a linear programming model for this case. Decision Variables Representing “x1” as pizza slices, “x2” as hot dogs, and “x3” as barbeque sandwich The Objective Function The objective is to maximize total profit.
