### What is the difference between margin and margin?

Profit margins are important if your suppliers keep raising the price of the product you need to sell or product you need for manufacturing. Margins are the differnt changes in the cost to profit percentages. If you buy a case of cookies for 5 dollars and sell them each for 10 dollars profit percentage is a 200 % or 50 % mark up. So your supplier now charges 6 dollars and you still sell them for 10 dollars . Your cost to profit percentages drop. If you raise your prices . Then the cost to profit percentages rises. This fluctuations are called margins. Most distributors want you to eat the loss in these fluctuations because . because your changing the the supply and demand curve. Which state and that and increase in price changes the quantity demand. which in laymens term states that you will sell less. In which drop the profit of both you and your distributor. Which probably hurt the distributors more because of his overhead. Any time your raise a price of a product you slow the sale of that product. That why margins are important.

### There is a bus with 7 children inside. Each child has 7 bags. Inside each bag there are 7 big cats. Each big cat has 7 small cats. All cats have 4 legs each. How many legs are on the bus?

As a riddle, the answer is zero legs on the bus since
the bus has wheels instead of legs.
But as a maths problem; It's not a tricked
question -- just a straightforward maths problem
Confirmed answer is 10990 legs.
§ Let's say the whole situation simply :
- There are 7 girls.
- Each girl has 7 backpack
- Each backpack has 7 big cats
- Each big cat has 7 little small cats.
§ Question: How many legs are there in the
bus?
§ Let's focus on each part of the question systematically,
write down on a piece of paper if you have to, following my steps
of chains.
1. Focus on the first girl first:
A B C D E F G
Girl A has 7 backpacks
2. Now focus on first backpack A1 :
A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7
Backpack A1 has 7 big cats
3. Now focus on first big cat :
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
? Each big cats have 7 small cats (that's the
end of the focus)
Systematically, 7 small cats has 28 legs (7 *
4) combined with the big cat that owns this 7 small
cats.
Let's call this the "cat chain", so cat chain 1
has 32 legs altogether.
? So since there are 7 big cats
7 * 32 = 224 legs
? Therefore each backpack has 224 legs
? Finally, each girl has 7 * 224 = 1568
legs.
Lastly, since there are 7 girls, A to G, there are 7 * 1568
legs (per girl) = 10976 legs.
Now, since each girl also has 2 legs each;
SO, (7 * 2) + 10976 = 10990 legs altogether
Note: Disregarding bus driver, buses and etc…Only focus on the
girl and their backpacks!
Or
There are 7*7 = 49 bags and there are 7 + 7*7 = 56 cats in each
bag, meaning there are 56*4 = 224 legs in each bag. So including
the 7 children that have 2 legs each, there are 7*2 + 49(224) =
10990 legs in total.

###### Asked in Science, Chemistry, Acids and Bases

### What are some examples of chemical and physical changes?

Physical Changes
Change of state (such as from solid to liquid or from gas to
liquid)
Specific examples of state change include water freezing,
alcohol evaporating and dry ice (solid carbon dioxide)
subliming
Absorption of water into a towel
Crumpling a piece of paper
Pulling copper into a thin wire - a change of shape, but not a
change of composition
Cutting a material such as wood
Tearing a piece of tin foil
Breaking glass
Deflating a basketball
Mixing different solids (such as solid sulfur and iron
filings)
Inflating a volleyball
Cloud forming in the sky
Chemical changes
Burning a log of wood
Mixing an acid with a base, producing water and a salt.
Photosynthesis - a process in which carbon dioxide and water
are changed into sugars by plants.
Cracking heavy hydrocarbons to create lighter hydrocarbons
(part of the process of refining oil).
Cooking examples: popcorn, cake, pancakes, and eggs
Oxidation examples: rust or tarnishing
Combustion
Mixing chemicals
Rotting of fruit
Cooking rice
Explosion of fireworks
Tarnishing silver
Lighting a match
Chewing/digesting food
Rusting nail
Burning gas in a stove
Oxidizing food for energy
Roasting a marshmallow
Adding food coloring to icing
Frying an egg
Burning a magnesium strip
The following can indicate that a chemical change took place,
although this evidence is not conclusive:
Change of color (for example, silver to reddish-brown when iron
rusts)
Change in temperature or energy, such as the production
(exothermic) or loss (endothermic) of heat
Change of form (for example, burning paper)
Light, heat, or sound is given off
Formation of gases, often appearing as bubbles
Formation of precipitate (insoluble particles)
The decomposition of organic matter (for example, rotting
food)
