The assignment is consisted of 3 computational questions that must be solved using spreadsheet and 2 written (open) questions that are related to the computational questions but evaluate application of theory. • In the computational part, you are asked to apply the calculations and knowledge of spreadsheets studied in class to the scenarios provided. • In the written part, make reference to the theory studied in class and provide examples to support your points. • You must upload the written answers and the spreadsheet via Turn-it-in. Save your documents with the filename: Axxxxxxx (where xxxxxxx is your last name). (Note: You should save two files. One should be an EXCEL document and the other should be a Word document.) • Questions: (Each question is 20% of the assignment) Part One 1. In the table below are the euro-dollar exchange rates for the first ten days of April 2017. The data shows dollar per euro. Draw a line chart that shows the evolution of the euro relative to the dollar. Add a trendline. 10/04/2017 09/04/2017 08/04/2017 07/04/2017 06/04/2017 05/04/2017 04/04/2017 03/04/2017 02/04/2017 01/04/2017 USD 1,0775 1,0844 1,0666 1,0793 1,0588 1,0370 1,0197 1,0447 1,0235 1,0066 2. Your company manufactures and exports construction cranes. The table below shows a series of models and their price in Euros. Create the table in excel. Insert the dollar rate on the 01/04/2017 in the cell below ́ ́Dollar rate ́ ́. Create a formula that allows you to see all the prices of the models in dollars; if the dollar rate changes, the dollar rate cell updates all the prices in the column. Repeat the procedure for the rate on 10/04/2017. 3. In the column marked difference, show the difference in dollars between the two dates. Model 500 VRG 675 VRG 750 VRG 200 MTY 575 VRG 625 VRG 225 MTY Part two Price in euros 44100 83200 100800 135600 185000 215300 243500 Date Dollar rate Price in dollars Date Dollar rate Price in dollars Difference 4. Create a memo in Word. Comment on the trend shown in question 1 above. During the first 5 days, was the euro rising or falling? And during those 10 days? 5. Most of your exports to the US belong to the model 500 VRG. The experience shows that, if the price of this product rises over 45000 dollars, the exported units will be reduced. If this product is priced in euros, and assuming the trend shown in question 1 continues, what would be the consequences for your company’s exports? Formalities For the Word Memo • Wordcount: 150-word max. • Font: Arial 12 pt. • Text alignment: Justified • Submission: Nov 15th, 2020. 23:59 CEST. • Weight: This task is 40% of your total grade for this subject. It assesses the following learning outcome: • Demonstrate a working level and familiarity with practical spreadsheet software formula.
