#### Activity [4 Marks]

Q.5 | Q 1

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) p0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1) p1sqrt("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

Q.5 | Q 2

Given the following table, find the Cost of living Index Number using Aggregate Expenditure Method by completing the activity.

 Group p0 q0 p1 p0q0 p1q0 A 23 4 25 square 100 B 15 5 20 75 square C 5 9 8 square 72 D 12 5 18 60 square E 8 6 13 square 78 Total – – – 320 square

Therefore, Cost of Living Index using Aggregate Expenditure method is

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

= square/square xx 100

= square
