    I would select option 4 as it is cheapest and gets the passengers to Hicksburg in due time for the connection.


    Option 1: The train will take 2 hours 4 mins for the trip with normal arrival at 8:34 pm. Adding 4 hour for the fix will cause the train to arrive 34 mins past midnight and therefore add a cost of $30,000 on top of the $8,000 reimbursement = $38,000

    Option 2: Cancellation is 2x $8,000 = $16,000

    Option 3: Adding 90 mins to the travel time calculated in option 1 will cause the train to arrive at 10:04 pm which is in due time for the connecting train. Cost $12,000

    Option 4: The train will travel at 120 km/h (40% of 300). It will therefore take 5 hours 10 mins to travel causing the train to arrive at 11:40 pm in due time for the connection. Cost $0

    I would select Swiss Metal


    The rationale (or formula) for selecting the supplier is based on a weighted score system based on

    Quality x 4 + Price x 2 + punctuality.

    Each parameter is converted into values between 0-100, i.e. High quality=100, Avg= 50, Low = 0; Low price = 100, med = 50, high = 0; Punctuality = number of stars x 20, i.e. 3 stars=60, 4 stars = 80:


    Mech-Heads = (0 x 4) + (100 x 2) + (3 x 20) = 260 pts

    Swiss Metal = (100 x 4) + (0 x 2) + (4 x 20) = 480 pts

    General Machines = (50 x 4) + (50 x 2) + (4 x 20) = 380 pts

    Q1: 2 (B)

    Q2: 4 (scissors)

    Q3: 1 (A)

    Q4: 2 (B)

    Q5: 1 (A)

    Q6: 3 (10 rotations anticlockwise)

    Q7: 4 (2,5 kg)

    Q8: 4 (20 cm)

    Q9: 1 (Acceleration will still be A)

    Q10: 2 (Less than 5 cm)

    The short answer: Zoe got more than the other kids
