Need help with economics
Question 4.6- A copy company wants to expand production. it currently has 20 workers who share eight copiers. Two month ago, the firm added two copiers, and output increased by 100,000 pages per day. One month ago, they added five workers, and productivity also increased by 50,000 pages per day. Copiers cost about twice as much as workers. Would you recommend they hire another employee or buy another copier?
Question 5.4- A University spent $1.8 million to install solar panels atop a parking garage. These panels will have a capacity of 500kw, have a life expectancy of 20 years and suppose the discount rate is 10%.
a. If electricity can be purchased for costs of $0.10 per kwh, how many hours per year will the solar panel have to operate to make this project break even?
b. If efficient systems operate for 2,400 hours per year, would the project break even?
c. The university is seeking a grant to cover capital costs. How big of the grant would make this project worthwhile (to the university)?
Question 5.5- Last year, a toy manufacturer introduced a new toy truck that was a huge success. The company invested $2.5 million for a plastic injection molding machine (which can be sold for $2.0 million) and $100,000 in plastic injection molds specifically for the toy (not valuable to anyone else). Labor and the cost of the materials necessary to make each truck is about $3. This year, a competitor has developed a similar toy that has significantly reduced demand for the toy truck. Now, the original manufacturer is deciding whether they should continue production of the toy truck. if the estimate demand is 100,000 trucks, what is the break-even price for the toy truck? Should you shut down?

Hi, I have a Masters degree in Economics. I was also a practising economist for close to 9 years, so I can easily ensure you get high marks for the assignment.
I do have experience with exercises of finance. I could do these exercises really easily and write it for you in a good presentation. I can do it in ppt format or in well-written .doc.
said project problems are much more complicated then it looks, but detailed analysis will give us brief idea and solutions for the same. I am confident that I will give best solution to each problem.
