Apple Inc. manufacturers I-phones. You have been hired as a cost accountant and your
assignment to create a master budget using EXCEL.. You have been working with various
departments to gather financial data to assemble a master budget. One reason you have
chosen this format is that upper management will probably make some last-minute changes
to sales and possible changes to some other cost forecasts. So, to simplify this problem you
MUST link all the budgets together. For example, if you change the sales forecast, then all
the remaining numbers in all other budgets would change without having to change numbers
manually in each budget.
One quarter of the budget has been prepared for you but you need to input the other three
quarters in order to prepare the income statement.
Here are the steps:
- You must setup all eight budgets using Excel. Starting with the sales budget, manually
calculate the sales budget forecast for all four quarters and calculate the total column
- Each budget should be prepared on individual Excel spreadsheets, on separate tabs.
- Each budget should professionally represent all the budget information; must be easy
to understand so it can be presented to the CEO and the owners of the business.
- Briefly discuss your assumptions and any challenges you encountered while preparing
he Turn of The Screw The title relates to the text because throughout the novel the governess suspects possession of the children by the ghosts of Miss Jessel, the former governess, and Peter Quint. Because of her continuous thoughts of such ghosts, we believe that she might be hallucinating or her screws are turned, meaning she might be losing her mind. It could suggest that there are things that affect a person, just like the drilling of a screw is affected by the pressure and the direction in which it’s turned. Similarly, the governess was affected by the stories told by Mrs. Grose of the previous events and by the pressure placed on her to protect the children and satisfy the employer’s requirement of her job. We believe that this title was the most suitable for this novel over any other title because it correlates significantly with the governess’s actions and perceptions, which she’s identified by. Opening chapter/first few pages The novel begins at an old house on Christmas Eve where many people sit and listen to a story that Mr. Douglas shares. A story of two children, Flora and Miles, based on the accounts of his sister’s governess whom he used to love. He continues on telling her story to the attendants and the novel recalls the previous events that took place at Bly, the estate in which she worked and the children lived. The beginning pages give background information and set up the plot for the rest of the novel. They add a personal touch separate from the actual story of the governess and clears up any confusion the reader might have on the setting or the characters. We think the author might have wanted to begin the novel that way so the reader can get into the horrific mood and because he relates it to a period in his life where the tradition in England used to be gathering for Christmas time for ghost story telling. Hence, this makes his novel more applicable to the period in which he lived and build more connections and interest into the readers of that era. He incorporates many events of his life into it making it significantly unique and personal such as the characters from stories he heard or his love life. However, as current readers, we can build on his background using historical backgrounds to understand people’s thought process during that time. Setting The novel’s main setting takes place at a country home, Bly, in England in the June of 1898. The other setting is near the house, which is the lake nearby. The house is described as being pleasant with clear fronts of flowers, trees, and gravel and windows open and fresh curtains and many maids all joined by a golden sky. The lake, which is the Sea of Azof, is described by having benches, old trees with thick shrubbery. The environment in which they live is consistently affecting them. Religiously, the governess and the children don’t go to the church often, in fact, there’s onl>GET ANSWER
