    Are you doing your A2's now? or are you just saying you're starting sixth form now and you want that grade overall haha?

    Either way it's not actually THAT hard - well not on the old spec at least, I need 80% average and 90% above in the A2's... unit 4 is relatively easier if you like the subject and can write well with some knowledge of current affairs or maybe a case study you have chosen yourself.
    Yh Im in yr12 now starting econ lol

    for all elasticity formulas quantity is always at the bottom.

    ped = %changeinprice/%changeinquantity
    yed = %changeinincome/%changeinquantity
    Hi econ plus dal said the value of price elasticity of supply is always POSITIVE but physics and math tutor hav done something different. econ plus dal also said you cover the sign in front when intrepreting the value of PES and PED but not XED or YED is that true? PLease HELP!!!!

    Same here.
    The best thing to do would be to find it in your textbook.
    Honestly though, that is probably one of the least likely things you'd be asked about, possibly find one multiple choice question about it, but i highly doubt that too.
    It's essentially about how social science is different to natural science. Do a little research in that, but you don't really need to concern yourself too much about that.

    I don't exactly what he said, but YED<1 doesn't have to be negative.

    So you could have luxury - supercar with YED positive and more than 1.

    Then butter - more or less a necessity, for which demand will rise but by less than income. If your house earns a bit more then your generally gonna consume a bit more of things like this.

    Then margarine, which is an 'inferior' substitute for butter. You'll have to start buying more of it as you get poorer.
    I can see why he/she got confused to be honest. Had to read it two times to properly understand it lol.

    What the person is saying is that:

    - NEGATIVE YED is an inferior good, but YED of 1<x<-1 will indicate it is an inferior or normal necessity (depending on sign), and a YED of x>1 or x<-1 will mean it is a normal or inferior luxury.. not sure how you can have an inferior luxury so i think that will only work for normal goods?

    hope that makes more sense.

    doing micro first as i think there's more content to my last recollection on the specification. Also, I prefer micro to macro although i got way higher in macro

    I am just selfteaching myself. I cant be bothered with the school slowing down to help teach everyone else
