This answer was rated:

Ortiz Company's sales budget projects unit sales of part 198Z of 10,900 units in January, 12,400 units in February, and 12,900 units in March. Each unit of part 198Z requires 4 pounds of materials, which cost $5 per pound. Ortiz Company desires its ending raw materials inventory to equal 30% of the next month's production requirements, and its ending finished goods inventory to equal 20% of the next month's expected unit sales. These goals were met at December 31, 2010.

How can I let you know that it is timed or not? And if its timed when can I send you the test?


ok yes you can, but when do you want me to meet you on Wednesday? Tell me the time in EST please, but anytime after 5:00 P.M

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
That sounds perfect. Wednesday at 6:30pm EST. Thank You! I truly appreciate it.

No problem at all :)


Here is what I suggest:



  • 1) On the day of the assignment, make a new post and base your offer on the total number of questions that would be on the assignment. Please make sure to type "For BusinessTutor" at the beginning of your post, then type something like "Are you here?"..
  • 2) Do not open the assignment until I respond to your message, I will be here on time, but just in case anything happens I do not want us to waste valuable time.
  • 3) Once I respond to you, you can open the quiz, copy and paste all the questions into a word document then upload the word document into then copy and paste the share link on the post.
  • 4) I will work out all the questions and send you the solutions
