The reason why the father wished to close down the branch was that it appeared to be making a loss. However, it is quite the reverse; if the branch was closed then, the positive contribution from the branch would be lost and overall profits would fall.
This is because the indirect costs of production do not vary with output and, therefore, closure of a section of the firm would not lead to immediate savings.
This may mean that closing the branch would be a mistake on financial grounds. This mistake is made due to a misunderstanding of nature of cost behavior.
If the branch is closed then the only costs that would be saved are the costs directly related to the running of the branch: The costs are indirect in nature, in this example the marketing and central administration costs, would still have to be paid as they are unaffected by output.
For this decision to be made, we should use contribution as a guide for deciding whether or not to close a branch. This can also be applied to the production of certain product lines, or the cost effectiveness of departments. On financial grounds, contribution is therefore, a better guide in making decisions.The class Math contains methods for performing basic numeric operations such as the elementary exponential, logarithm, square root, and trigonometric functions..
Unlike some of the numeric methods of class StrictMath, all implementations of the equivalent functions of class Math are not defined to return the bit-for-bit same results.
This relaxation permits better-performing implementations. From the denominator of the first term it looks like the first term is just a constant.
The correct numerator for this term is a “1” so we’ll just factor the 6 out before taking the inverse transform. /*A C program is executed as if it is a function called by the Operating System, the Operating System can and does pass parameters to the program. A beautiful, free online graphing calculator from srmvision.com A much simpler function that uses a single input line without prompts and returns the answer to the home screen instead of program/io.

Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many.
