Ouch, sounds like a little econometrics there. With Nairu and Philips curve I could help, Mundell-Fleming and IS/LM a little, but what does DAS/DAD stand for?

dynamic aggregated supply/ demand ?!
we never use german words...
econometrics? wtf? I thought I was doing macro II.

Ok, thought so because of the terms: endogenous/exogenous variables
I study it in English either, but we never had dynamic aggregated s/d as far as I know of.

really? You have never had to do with that? interesting...oh I just saw DAS/DAD also has to do with rational/adaptive expectations and demand/supply shocks...anyway.
Do you know what I mean with endogenous/exog. variables in Mundel-Fleming Model? How do I know which variables are exogenous ( =0)?

I read Burda/Wypolsz, Mankiw and Gärtner at the same time and I still don't get it...

Well, are there any philosophers out here? I'm currently reading David Hume's 'Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion' and I'm struggling really well. Haha.

I'm using sparknotes and whatnot, but I'm barely keeping up with the in-class discussions. Booooo to in-class discussions.
I took Philosophy. Failed. I wouldnt touch that subject again with a shity stick.

Everything went over my head in that class, the teacher didnt help either. Only thing I really remember is a bit of Jean Paul Sartres stuff. I thought it'd be like Religious Studies, but boy was I wrong. T__T

A lot of the theoretical stuff we do more in passing. Can't remember having talked about those models.
DAS/DAD sounds interesting, and I guess I will read up on that.

Exactly how to determine the endogeneous and exogeneous variables I can't tell. But since endogeneous is always something that "comes from you", i.e. you can influence it while the exogeneous stuff is something that you don't have under your control I guess in the model the IS curve is endogeneous while the LM curve would be exogeneous as should be the ZZ curve.
But that's just my guessing.

PROBLEM 2. Hi youtooellen. Hope this helps.
x=(y-1)/2 --> slope intercept form --> y=2x+1 so based on y=mx+b where m=slope and b=y-intercept, we know slope(m)=2. Parallel lines have the same slope, so second line slope (m)=2.

To find y-intercept(b) of second line, use x-intercept=5 and m=2
x-intercept is solved by setting y=0, 0=mx+b you are given x=5 and you know m=2 from first part so solve for b b=-(mx) b=-(2x5) b=-10
Plug m=2 and b=-10 into slope intercept form y=mx+b --> y=2x-10.

Oops. I didn't see that this was from LAST night. NEVERMIND, but I have PROBLEMS 3 and 4 if you still want them. Let me know. Good Luck.

^ ah! thank you so much. see, i forgot everything about slope and whatnot. the formulas to get m and all that jazz.
perpendicular to an equation means that the slope has to be opposite reciprocal, right? i don't know why but the whole y-y1=m(x-x1) is irritating. i can't use it properly when i'm given an x-intercept to begin with.

i just solve from y=mx+b and plug in the (x,0) and (0,y) points to find b.

i have a math exam today....... i'm not sure if i'll do well or terrible. i think i learned the material pretty damn fast so i'm thinking i'll do well. or at the very least pass the exam.

does anyone know what the term "alternative odds" means? my professor wrote that on our homework assignments.... #1-111, and i thought that meant just the odd numbers... but that's taking so fucking long. i'm guessing alternative odds has to mean something else. any chance someone can clarify my idiocy?

Alright. So... new problem I've encountered.






I really fucking suck at factoring polynomials and trinomials. Especially with problems that have a leading coefficient.

Here's an example from my textbook:

18 x^6 y^5 + 24 x^3 y^3
42 x^2 y^5


Seriously. Oh em gee. I think I'm kinda sorta screwed for my exam today.
I should have done my homework earlier..

ok, now I know how to do define those variables. As a result I got q decrease (this tobin's q) and Y & M decrease. I should draw this now, and the only thing I know is that if Y, G, q increases the IS-curve shifts to the right. Can I shift the IS/LM-curve to the left? I have never seen that... thx

btw, if anyones done A2 biology coursework, Id appriciate some help.

I got told I need it on wednesday. I kinda put it off. A lot.

Wow this thread really separates the Mathematicians and Scientists from the Linguists doesn't it
