ValleyTrout Farms ordered food and it was sent to them alongside an invoicethat stated that an additional charge would be provided for latepayment. The merchants did not pay for the food. The law of contractsuggests that implied acceptance is valid.

Therefore, ValleyTrout Farms is not true to say that they were not required to pay forthe charge.


Theletter sent by Fastner Corp to Renzo Box C.o. was signed by the salesmanager. It stated that the offer provided is irrevocable for tendays, but it was revoked in 5 days.

There was no contract in this case because Renzo did notaccept either through direct or implied means. Silence is notacceptance. Therefore, Fastner could revoke.
