Modeling Costs for the General Store 1. Remember the form of a quadratic equation: ax2+bx+c 2. You will use: W=-.01x2+100x+c where (-.01x2+100x) represents the store's variable costs and c is the store's fixed costs. 3. So, W is the stores total monthly costs based on the number of items sold, x. 4. Think about what the variable and fixed costs might be for your fictitious storefront business - and be creative. Start by choosing a fixed cost, c, between $5,000 and $10,000, according to the following class chart: 5.

Modeling Costs for the General Store

1. Remember the form of a quadratic equation: ax2+bx+c

2. You will use: W=-.01x2+100x+c where (-.01x2+100x) represents the store's variable costs and c is the store's fixed costs.

3. So, W is the stores total monthly costs based on the number of items sold, x.

4. Think about what the variable and fixed costs might be for your fictitious storefront business - and be creative. Start by choosing a fixed cost, c, between $5,000 and $10,000, according to the following class chart:

5. My last name is Haggins so my fixed cost would be be between $5800-$6400

If your last name starts with the letter Choose a fixed cost between
A-E $5000-$5700
F-I $5800-$6400
J-L $6500-$7100
M-O $7200-$7800
P-R $7800-$8500
S-T $8600-$9200
U-Z $9300-$10,000

6. Post your chosen c value in your subject line, so your classmates can easily scan the discussion thread and try to avoid duplicating your c value. (Different c values make for more discussion.)

7. Your monthly cost is then, W = -.01x^2+100x+c.

8. Substitute the c value chosen in the previous step to complete your unique equation pblackicting your monthly costs.

9. Next, choose two values of x (number of items sold) between 100 and 200. Again, try to choose different values from classmates.

10. Plug these values into your model for W and evaluate the monthly business costs given that sales volume.

11. Discuss results and alternate business decisions.

my last name is paliwal
so my fixed cost would be 7800$ to 8500$
i choose c to be 8000$
W=-.01x2+100x+ 8000
let x be 100
w= -100+ 10000+ 8000
= 17900
let x be 200
w= -400+20000+8000
= 27600
so the cost is increasing as i m increasing the value of x means the variable cost is increasing

Some have proposed that for a natural centrality measure, the most central a node can get is the center node in the star network. I've heard this called "star maximization." That is, for a measure M ( ), and a star network g with center c ,
{ ( c , g ) } arg max ( i , g ) N × G ( N ) M ( i , g )
where N is the set of nodes and G considers all unweighted network structures.

I'd like to learn about some centrality measures that don't satisfy this property, but "star maximization" isn't a heavily used term, so I am having trouble in searching for many such measures. What are some such measures of centrality?
