Solution

Construct the following table:

Commodity Base Year Current Year p0q0 p1q0 p0q1 p1q0
  p0 q0 p1 q0
A 8 20 11 5 160 220 40 55
B 7 10 12 10 70 120 70 120
C 3 30 5 20 90 150 60 100
D 2 50 4 15 100 200 30 60
Total 420 690 200 335

From the table, `sum"p"_0"q"_0` = 420, `sum"p"_1"q"_0` = 690, `sum"p"_0"q"_1` = 200, `sum"p"_1"q"_1` = 335

Marshall-Edgeworth’s Price Index Number:

P01(M-E) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_0 + sum"p"_1"q"_1)/(sum"p"_0"q"_0 + sum"p"_0"q"_1)`

= `(690 + 335)/(420 + 200) xx 100`

= `1025/6200 xx 100`

= 165.32

Given the following table, find Walsh’s Price Index Number by completing the activity.

Commodity p0 q0 p1 q1 q0q1 `sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p0`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` p1`sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)`
I 20 9 30 4 36 `square` `square` 180
II 10 5 50 5 `square` 5 50 `square`
III 40 8 10 2 16 `square` 160 `square`
IV 30 4 20 1 `square` 2 `square` 40
Total     390 `square`

Walsh’s price Index Number is

P01(W) = `square/(sum"p"_0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)) xx 100`

= `510/square xx 100`

= `square`


In the following table, Laspeyre's and Paasche's Price Index Numbers are equal. Complete the following activity to find x :

Commodity Base Year Current year
Price Quantity Price Quantity
A 2 10 2 5
B 2 5 x 2

Solution: P01(L) = P01(P)

`(sum "p"_1"q"_0)/(sum "p"_0"q"_0) xx 100 = square/(sum "p"_0"q"_1) xx 100`

`(20 + 5x)/square xx 100 = square/14 xx 100`

∴ x = `square`
