1 2.1.4 – Growth Models The most common formulas to measure growth are: 1) [{X t -X t-1 }/X t-1 ] X 100 2) [ln(X t )-ln(X t-1 )] X 100 3) [{dX/dt}/X] X 100 4) [dln(X)/dt] X 100 -each formula has advantages and disadvantages given situation and available data

2 2.1.4 – Growth Examples Find growth of X when ln(X) = a +bt Using 4: g = [dln(X)/dt] X 100 = 100b% Using 2: g = [ln(X t )-ln(X t-1 )] X 100 = a+bt –[a+b(t-1)] X 100 = 100b%

3 2.1.4 – Growth Examples Find growth of X when X = a + bt Using 3: g = [{dX/dt}/X] X 100 = 100b/X % Using 1: g = [{X t -X t-1 }/X t-1 ] X 100 = {a+bt –[a+b(t-1)]}/X X 100 = 100b/X%

8 2.A – More Derivatives 2) Trig. Functions – Chain Rule If y = sin 2 (3x+2), y’= 2sin(3x+2)cos(3x+2)3 Try these: y=ln(2sin(x) -2cos 2 (x-1/x)) y=sin 3 (3x+2)ln(4x-7/x 3 ) 5 y=ln([3x+4]sin(x)) / cos(12xln(x))

14 2.2 Mathematical Models of Economic Relationships Example 1 – Consumption Function -consumption is based on income -even with zero income, some consumption (autonomous consumption) occurs -as income rises, consumption rises -out of every new dollar earned, a fraction, the marginal propensity to consume (mpc) is spent on consumption – remainder is saved -the mpc determines the slope of the graph
