Problem 1. Maintenance Checkup
RentFun is a business that uses booths to rent digital discs. The quality of the discs worsens
to the extent that RentFun considers them to be defective.
RentFun wants to maintain a stock of discs that are at least 90 percent acceptable. RentFun has
hired you to create a report that assesses each disc based on:
• Total number of times each title has been rented
• Number of times each title has reported defects
• The percent acceptable must be above 90% based on usage. If the percentage acceptable is
below 90%, RentFun wants to label the disc as “DISCARD.”
RentFun has given you with the data in a file called RentFun.xlsx. The figure below displays a
sample of the output that RentFun needs.
Problem 2. Loan Estimation
Katia wants to buy a more recent car to replace her current one. Katia’s bank offers her an annual
interest rate of 5.00% for a two-year loan. By selling her old car and using her savings, Katia has
$5,000 available as a down payment. Under her current budget, Katia figures out that the maximum
monthly loan payment she can pay is $500. She wants to find out the maximum car price she can
buy and keep the monthly payment no higher than $500. She cannot change the interest rate or
the two-year term.
Using Goal Seek, determine the highest purchase price Katia can afford.

function returns a negative value because it represents payments being made to the
lender. Thus, you can multiply the result of the PMT function by -1 to generate a
In your solution, you must include a screenshot of your Goal Seek configuration.

wholesale cost of the four items must be less than $200,000.
2. Joe must purchase between a minimum of 100 units and 500 units of each item from
Using Solver, maximize the total profit for Joe with the constraints mentioned above and limiting
the number of items to positive integers.
