1. Problem 8-6
A firm that has recently experienced an enormous growth rate is seeking to lease a small plant in Memphis, TN; Biloxi, MS; or Birmingham, AL. Prepare an economic analysis of the three locations given the following information:  Annual costs  for building,  equipment,  and  administration  would  be  \$42,400 for Memphis,
\$60,000 for Biloxi, and \$100,000 for Birmingham. Labor and materials are expected to be \$8 per unit in Memphis, \$4 per unit in Biloxi, and \$5 per unit in Birmingham. The Memphis location would increase system transportation costs by \$50,000 per year, the Biloxi location by \$60,000 per  year,  and  the  Birmingham  location by \$27,200 per year. Expected annual volume is 13,000 units.(Omit  the  "\$"  sign  in  your response.)
2. Problem 8-7
A retired  auto  mechanic  hopes  to  open  a  rustproofing  shop.  Customers  would  be  local  new-car  dealers. Two locations are being considered, one in the center of the city and one on the outskirts. The central city location would involve fixed monthly costs of \$6,820 and labor,  materials, and transportation costs of \$30        per car. The outside location would have fixed monthly costs of \$4,500  and  labor,  materials,  and  transportation costs of \$40 per car. Dealer price at either location will be \$90 per car.

Which location will yield the greatest profit if monthly demand is (1) 200 cars? (2) 300 cars?
