In essence through voice commands a projector can be turned on, off, and the brightness of the projection altered.  This will allow the user to avoid audience annoyances associated with a bright projection light during periods when no overhead transparency is being used.  Venture investors usually screen prospective venture opportunities in terms of projected profitability and financial performance.

Use the following projected financial statement for Martinez Products to calculate financial ratios showing the venture's projected (a) gross profit margin, (b) net profit margin, (c) asset intensity, and (d) ROA
