Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Productivity fell by about 16.7%.Step-by-step explanation:Consider the provided information.Dilbert’s Incorporated produced 6,000,000 units of software in 2005.In 2006 production was 7,000,000 units.In 2005 they was making 6,000,000 units in 10,000 hours.Per hour output = [tex]\frac{6,000,000}{10000} =600[/tex]In 2005 per hour output was 600.In 2006 they are making 7,000,000 units in 14,000 hoursPer hour output = [tex]\frac{7,000,000}{14000} =500[/tex]In 2005 per hour output is 500.That means the per hour output decreases. Or we can say that the productivity falls.The difference between the production:7,000,000-6,000,000=1,000,000Therefore, they increase 1,000,000 units.Decrease in productivity = [tex]\frac{1000000}{6000000}\times 100=\frac{100}{6} \approx16.7[/tex]Hence, productivity fell by about 16.7%.
