Encyclopedias for Sale By Amy Sullo Kaplan University Unit 4 Assignment In Unit 4 I learned what constitutes a contract, and when someone is bound to honor a contract. The situation is: Carrie offered to sell a set of legal encyclopedias to Antonio for $300.00. Antonio said that he would think about her offer and let her know his decision the next day. Norvel, who had overheard the conversation between Carrie and Antonio, said to Carrie, "I accept your offer," and Carrie gave Norvel the books. The next day, Antonio, who had no idea that Carrie had already sold the books to Norvel, told Carrie that he accepted her offer. The questions are Is Carrie obligated to sell the encyclopedias to Norvel? Why or why not? And has Carrie breached a valid contract with Antonio? Explain. In this situation, yes Carrie was obligated to sell her encyclopedias to Norvel and was not breaching a contract with Antonio. Carrie had made an offer and was given an acceptance by Norvel, which would be considered a contract to purchase the books.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
