E  Some snarks are bandersnatches. All bandersnatches are igglypoofs. So, some snarks are igglypoofs.
  3. Answer the following questions. Give short explanations that reason from the definitions of the relevant logical concepts
  4. Does an argument provide a good reason for believing its conclusion if it is valid? Explain.
  5. Can a valid argument have a false conclusion? Explain.

  15. Explain how deductive validity and inductive strength differ.
  16. Can the conclusion of an inductively cogent argument be false? Explain.
  17. Must an inductively strong argument have true premises? Explain.

THIS BELOW PART IS THE READING FOR THE ASSIGNMENT (NOT PART OF THE QUESTIONS)

Validity Recap:

It will help to keep these categories separate:

Statements or claims can be true or false, but not valid, sound, strong or cogent.

Arguments are sets of statements. Arguments can’t be true or false. The can be valid, sound strong or cogent.

Properties of Statements (or claims) Properties of Arguments
True or false Valid

Sound

Strong

Cogent

When we way an argument is valid (or strong) we are not claiming that its premises are true. We are only claiming that IF they are true, then the conclusion is true (or likely to be true in the case of strength).

Arguments Deductive Inductive
Premises support conclusion Valid

If the premises are then the conclusion must be true

Strong

If the premises are true then the conclusion is likely to be true

Support + true premises Sound

Valid an all premises are true

Cogent

Strong and all premises are true

Valid argument can have false premises and they can have false conclusions. When we say an argument is valid we are only saying that the conclusion must be true IF all the premises are true. Each of the arguments in the chart below is valid:

True Premises Some false premises
True conclusion 1.      If cats are felines then they nurse their young.

2.      Cats are felines

3.      So cats nurse their young.

1.       If dogs are felines then they nurse their young

2.      Dogs are felines

3.      So dogs nurse their young

False conclusion No such thing. For an argument to be valid is for it to be impossible for it premises to be true and its conclusion false. 1.      If fish are felines then they nurse their young

2.      fish are felines

3.      So fish nurse their young

Instructions

Reflect on a time where you had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict total cost. What would you have done had you not had that information to use? Consider a time when you had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict total costs. Reflect on the possible outcome had one of these two variables not been known. Explain what you might have done. Note: If you have not had to rely on fixed and variable costs to predict cost before, identify what you would do if placed in that situation

Note

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.

QUESTION 11

  1. The managerial accountant at Sunny Manufacturing needs to determine how many costs are fixed costs and how many costs are variable costs in the organization. The managerial accountant reported the following information:
    Sunny Manufacturing
    Cost Report
     CostsJanuary1,800$21,500February2,900$23,200March1,000$19,750April2,400$21,000May3,400$23,900
    Use the high-low method to determine the cost equation and use machine hours as the base for a cost driver in the analysis.

QUESTION 12

  1. The controller for Camden’s Bike Shop has gathered the following cost and activity level information:
    Average total cost per unit$225.00Production level used to calculate average cost1,000Total fixed costs$80,000

    1. What is the total cost of producing 1,000 racing bicycles?
    2. What is the variable cost of producing each racing bicycle?
    3. Suppose the controller uses the average cost to predict total costs. What total cost would the controller calculate for 2,500 racing bicycles?
    4. If the controller uses the cost equation to predict total costs, what total cost would the controller calculate for 2,500 racing bicycles?
    5. Is there a difference between the forecasted total cost using average cost versus the cost equation? If there is a difference, what creates the difference? If there is no difference, when would there be a difference?

    QUESTION 13

  1. The managerial accountant at Fast and Mean Manufacturing reported that the organization contains an automated production line to manufacture and produce its products for consumers to enjoy in the marketplace. The managerial accountant reported that the company uses the high-low method to estimate the costs in the new budget. The managerial accountant reported the following information:

    1. Compute the slope of the mixed cost, or the variable cost per unit of activity.
    2. Compute the vertical intercept, or the fixed cost component of the mixed cost.
    3. What is the mixed cost equation?

Data mining

Data mining

Data mining helps in workflow design in hospitals and can uncover relationships that are hidden in the complexity of multiple processes.

  1. Explain what relationships would be helpful to the nurse administrator in making quality improvement decisions.
  2. Why is it important for the nurse executive to work closely with the advanced analytics professional?

2.Discuss the major social issues occurring at the time this nurse lived.

3.Describe two contributions this nurse made to the nursing profession including an explanation of how these two unique contributions influenced current nursing practice.

Ethics

Ethics

Option 1. Do you identify more with Kant’s deontology or Bentham’s Utilitarianism from Chapter 5?  Is intention more important than consequences? Give an example of a difficult decision you made that you feel was the morally right decision. Was your decision based on intention, on consequences, or on a combination of both?

Option 2. Refer to Box 6.3 on page 254 in your textbook. Consider the idea that rationality creates good decisions. Identify a decision you made that could have used more reason (logic) to arrive at a good or moral decision or identify a decision that you made rationally that could have used more emotion.

Directions:
