CHAPTER 14 – ANSWERS TO END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEMS Quick Check 1a. True. 1f. False. 1b. True. 1g. True. 1c. True. 1h. True. 1d. False. 1i. False. 1e. True. 2a. Real.  Nominal profits are likely to move with inflation; real profits are easier to forecast. 2b. Nominal.  The payments are nominal. 2c.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
