### How do you determine the risk profile of a company?

financial statements, cash flows, financial ratios, historic events and company developments Less

### There's a scale where items can be weighed at the ends and 6 cue balls, but only one weighs more than the others. What's the least number of weigh ins possibly in order to determine the heaviest ball?

The answer is 2. Weigh ABC vs. DEF, set aside the set that weighs less. Then, choose any two balls from the heavier set and weigh them against each other. If they are equal, you know the thrid ball is the heaviest. If one of them is heavier, you have the ball you're looking for. Less

I can do it in 3 weigh ins. Pair up the 6 cue balls such that there are groups, say A, B, and C where cue balls 1 and 2 are in A, 3 and 4 are in B, and 5 and 6 are in C. 1. Weigh group A. 2. Weigh group B. If A and B are equal, the heaviest ball is in group C. Otherwise, choose heaviest group from weigh-ins 1 and 2 (A or B). Choose one ball from heaviest group and pair with one of the balls from the lighter (equal) groups. So if group C is the heaviest, pair 5 and 1 together or 6 and 1 or 5 and 3, etc. 3. Weigh new pair. If this is equal to the lightest between A and B, the other ball from the heaviest group is the heaviest cue. If this is not equal to the lightest of A and B, this ball weighed from the heaviest group is the heaviest ball. It takes 3 weigh-ins no matter which ball is the heaviest. Less

I think 2 would be enough

### Which specific balance sheet items would you look at to determine a company's credit worthiness?

Cash balances obviously as it shows if they have the flow to support additional lines of credit, then maybe creditors as it shows a pecking order if things go south. Less

Assets, Liabilities, and Shareholder's Equity. - Assets: Are the economic resource of the company use to operate the company include Cash, Inventory, and Equipment - Liabilities: Represent the debt of the company. - Equity: Represent the net worth of the company. Less

I asked if he could offer more money as I am supporting a daughter in college. The answer was no. I needed the job, so I accepted the job at \$16.00/hour. Less
