Question;QUIZ 1 1Probabilistic techniques assume that no uncertainty exists in model parameters. 2Fixed cost is the difference between total cost and total variable cost. 3Parameters are known, constant values that are usually coefficients of variables in equations. 4In general, an increase in price increases the break even point if all costs are held constant. 5A continuous random variable may assume only integer values within a given interval. 6If events A and B are independent, then P(A|B) = P(B|A). 7P(A | B) is the probability of event A, if we already know that event B has occurred. 8The purpose of break?]even analysis is to determine the number of units of a product to sell thatwill 9If the price increases but fixed and variable costs do not change, the break even point 10The indicator that results in total revenues being equal to total cost is called the 11A bed and breakfast breaks even every month if they book 30 rooms over the course of amonth.
