As discussed in the chapter, companies are often classified into one of three categories: service, merchandising, and manufacturing.

1. Choose one well-known company from each category and explore that company's website. On the website, find a brief company description as well as the most recent published financial statements. Based on the company description, support your categorization of the company as service, merchandising, or manufacturing. If the company falls into more than one of these categories, describe how.
2. Look at the income statement and balance sheet for the company and list any factors that would support your categorization of the company as a service, merchandising, or manufacturing organization.
