Activity 1:

How to finance a purchase

[lo 5.3]

Sometimes one does not have the cash to buy an item, especially a home / car / furniture, etc.

Find out how many finance options are available to someone who wants to purchase one of the following:

  • A new car
  • A used car
  • A lounge suite / bedroom suite
  • A first home
  • A small business

Also make a list of the documentation and information one will need for these purchases.

Which of the options you have researched seem like the best one? Why?

Summarise your research and conclusion.

  • Determine the best option
  • Documents needed for the chosen finance option
  • The sources you needed to gather information

THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT

1. Della stood at the window of her shabby flat and looked out dully at a grey cat walking on a grey fence in a grey backyard. Tomorrow would be Christmas Day and she had only one dollar 87 cents with which to buy a present for her husband, Jim. She had saved every cent she could for weeks, with this result. Twenty dollars a week does not go very far. Expenses had been greater than she had calculated. Only $1,87 to buy her Jim a present! She had planned for months to give him something fine and rare and sterling.

2. Suddenly she whirled from the window and stood before the mirror. Her eyes were shining brilliantly as an idea flashed into her mind.

3. Rapidly she pulled down her hair and let it fall into its full length. Now there were two possessions of the James Willingham Youngs in which they took a mighty pride. One was Jim’s gold watch which had been his father’s. The other was Della’s hair.

4. So now Della’s beautiful hair fell about her, rippling and shining like a cascade of brown waters. It reached below her knee and made itself almost a garment for her. Then she did it up again nervously and quickly. Once she faltered for a minute while a tear or two splashed on the worn red carpet.

5. On went her old brown jacket; on went her old brown hat. With a whirl of skirts and with a brilliant sparkle still in her eyes, she fluttered out of the door and down the stairs to the street. Where she stopped, the sign read: “Mme Sofronie. Hair Goods of All Kinds” and Della entered.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
