1 AnswerComputer Networking9 years ago### Calculate income for tithe?

Hi guys

I have a business that generates 20k in revenue. Cost of goods are 15k, thats leave me 5k profit, but I still have to pay lease for my store, electricity bills, phone bills and employee around 3k, those are operational expenses not my own house phone bills and so on. How did I calculate my tithe?

Is the 10% tithe taken from revenue (20k) minus cost of goods (15) and then subtracted by operational expenses (3k)?

Or revenue (20k) minus cost of goods (15k)?

Thank you very much for your time.

12 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago### calculating normal distribution in option pricing model?

Assume that:

StockPrice (S): 100

StrikePrice (X): 95

TimeToExp(t) : in 3 months time, equivalent to 0.25;

StandardDeviation(v): 50%

InterestRate (r): 10%

--------------------------------------------------------------------

So, to calculate the call theoretical value using black-scholes model is:

S * N(d1) - (X * (1 - (r * t))) * N(d2)

-or-

100 * N(0.43) - (95 * (1 - (0.10 * 0.25))) * N(0.18) = $13.71

My question is how to calculate the normal distribution value which in this example will yield:

N(0.43) = 0.6664

N(0.18) = 0.5714

If we fill in the given value above to replace N(0.43) and N(0.18), we will get $13.71. But how do we get that 0.6664 and 0.5714?

Thanks

For example: a company announced a 1:6 reverse split. Let's say I have a bull call spread for a debit of $1 and thus I have a total risk of $100 per contract. Does it mean that after reverse stock split, my risk will turns out to be $6 which is $600 per contract?

2 AnswersInvesting1 decade ago### Multi PCDs Alloy Wheel?

I own a Jaguar iForged 20" alloy wheel and would like to use it on my all new Honda Accord. But it doesn't fit since both car has different PCD.

One of alloy wheel supplier in my town suggest me to add more holes to make it dual PCD. So that it can fit in both car.

What I'm concern about is whether will it be safe for me to add holes and make it dual PCD on a single wheel?

1 AnswerMaintenance & Repairs1 decade ago### Is stocks that pay dividend to preferred stockholder more than what it earns still worth buying?

Let say you come across a stocks that is growing about 25% in net sales for the last 3 years. Earning an average of 8 millions in the past 3 years. But you notice that for it's recent quarter ending in Dec 2007, it pays out nearly 12x more than it's quarterly income. Do you still consider this stock worth buying?

I have no financial or investment background. This is what I personally think : "Since a preferred stocks give the right to stockholders to receive dividend, then this company stated above will need to dig their pocket to pay those stockholders annually. But if you look at their past 3 years earning history, there is no way for you to hope to get a piece of this earning, because what they pay to preferred stockholder is beyond their net income. At the end, a negative amount of cash is available to common stockholders".

Will this stocks still worth buying?

Thanks and have a nice day ;)

Cheers
