Question

# Venetta Knows that 1mi = 1.6 km . To convert 5 mi/h to km/h , she multiplies 5 mi/h by 1mi/1.6km . What error does Venetta make ?

Hint:

### To convert any given data into a different unit, we use cross-multiplication method-

1mi = 1.6km

∴ 5mi = ? = (5 × 1.6) km.

## The correct answer is: Error that Venetta has made during the conversion is that she has erroneously multiplied the distance in miles with 1/1.6 km instead of 1.6 km

### Step-by-step solution:-

1mi = 1.6km …............................................... (Given)

∴ 5mi/h = (5×1.6)km/hr

∴ 5mi/h = 8km/hr

We can see from the above calculation that to convert miles to km, we need to multiply the distance in miles with 1.6km.

Venetta has mistakenly, Multiplied the distance in miles with 1/1.6km i.e. she has taken the reciprocal of the conversion ratio.

Final Answer:-

∴ Error that Venetta has made during the conversion is that she has erroneously multiplied the distance in miles with 1/1.6 km instead of 1.6 km.

### City Tours rents bicycles for $10 an hour with a maximum daily fee of $100.Make a table that shows the cost of renting a bicycle for 1, 3, 11, and 20 hours. Is time a function of cost? Explain.

As this question concluded, time is not a function of cost because the standard cost depends on the time for which the bicycle is rented. So, this concludes that time is not a function of cost. Apart from that, we should know which costs are time-based (rather than sales-based) and generally contractual.

According to the requirements, a firm's total costs can be classified into various categories. Product and period costs, fixed and variable costs, direct and indirect costs, manufacturing costs, administrative and selling expenses, and so on.

A firm's fixed or period costs are usually a function of time because they are incurred every period regardless of sales volume.

The following are some examples of fixed costs that are also contractual:

1) Manufacturing facility and administrative building rent costs

2) Salary payments made to employees

3) The cost of an annual contract signed with a third party for equipment maintenance, etc.

4) Bill for electricity and utilities for the administration building.
