Prejudice is an unjustified or negative opinion toward an individual based on their involvement in a social group and can be based on a certain race or gender. Stereotyping is a popular belief about certain groups or individuals based on race, gender or religion. The act of discriminating differs from prejudice and stereotyping because it is the act or behavior against specific individuals or groups of people, where prejudice and stereotyping are not actions, but negative opinions or beliefs about a specific individual or group.

...Appendix C Club IT, Part 1 Club IT is a downtown music venue managed and owned by Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada. They both graduated with degrees in Business Administration in 2005 and decided to follow their dream of opening a nightclub. During college, they supported themselves by working as musicians; Lisa played jazz violin and Ruben played drums. They learned a lot about nightclub operations from their music experiences, in addition to business principles learned from their studies. Lisa and Ruben have just completed extensive remodeling of the interior of Club IT and are pleased with the results. The club’s tall ceilings and high-energy lighting creates an ambience of fun and liveliness. They hire live bands on Fridays and Saturdays and have a live DJ Tuesdays through Thursdays; the club is closed on Sundays. The DJ uses a collection of MP3 playlists, including hip-hop, techno, and electronic with some Top 40s thrown in. Lisa and Ruben run the office and maintain all financial and business-related records. They realize that while the resources they spent on remodeling are paying off well, their information management is struggling. Their next project is a full analysis of their information needs, and to start it off, they have hired you as an intern.

...Appendix C Polynomials Retail companies must keep close track of their operations to maintain profitability. Often, the sales data of each individual product is analyzed separately, which can be used to help set pricing and other sales strategies. Application Practice Answer the following questions. Use Equation Editor to write mathematical expressions and equations. First, save this file to your hard drive by selecting Save As from the File menu. Click the white space below each question to maintain proper formatting. 1. In this problem, we analyze the profit found for sales of decorative tiles. A demand equation (sometimes called a demand curve) shows how much money people would pay for a product depending on how much of that product is available on the open market. Often, the demand equation is found empirically (through experiment, or market research). a. Suppose a market research company finds that at a price of p = $20, they would sell x = 42 tiles each month. If they lower the price to p = $10, then more people would purchase the tile, and they can expect to sell x = 52 tiles in a month’s time. Find the equation of the line for the demand equation. Write your answer in the form p = mx + b. Hint: Write an equation using two points in the form (x,p). P=mx+b $20= m (42) + b; $10= m (52) + b X = quantity P=price sold 42 20 52 10 M= M= M= M=-1 Substitute -1 for the variable M. $20= -1 (42) + b; $10= -1 (52) + b $20= -42 + b;...
