AP Economics

Thanks to all of you for a great year and good luck on your test on Friday 5/18 at Due West.  Get there at 7:30 AM.

If you are in 1st period and not taking the exam, I’ve been told that you are expected to be in 1st period class unless you choose to take an absence.  Read that as you will.  If you are in 1st period on Friday you can study for your 2nd period exam as we have already taken our exam and have no more assignments.

 

 

AP Microeconomics FRQ Solutions to problems you’ll get in class this week–don’t look ’til you’ve tried them

Note on elasticity problem parts a and b:  you can do the midpoint formula but they will also accept you computing the percent change in quantity over the percent change in price.  For example, in part a, when the quantity went from 100 down to 30 that is a 70% drop (70/100) and when the price went up from $1.00 to $1.35 that is a 35% increase (.35/1.00).  So this is 70/35 and the answer is 2.  These numbers were not friendly for  the midpoint formula without a calculator.  If you did the midpoint formula your answer will be different but they will still accept it.  For part b The quantity supplied didn’t change so that’s a 0% change in quantity divided by a 35% change in price so the elasticity of supply is 0.
