    a. Describe in brief i. Price Index ii. Weightage iii. Composite index PRICE INDEX

    Measure of change in a set of prices, consisting of a series of numbers arrangedso that a comparison of the values for any two periods or places will show thechange in prices between periods or the difference in prices between places. Price indexes were first developed to measure changes in the cost of living in order to determine the wage increases necessary to maintain a constant standard of living. There are two basic types. Laspeyres-type indexes define a market basketof goods in a base period, then use the prices for those goods to examine changeover space and time. In its simplest form, this is simply the ratio of what those goods cost today to what they cost in the base period. The two most familiarindexes of this type are the consumer price index (CPI) and the producer price index (PPI). The CPI measures changes in retail prices in such component parts asfood, clothing, and shelter. The PPI (formerly called the wholesale price index) measures changes in the prices charged by manufacturers and wholesalers. Paschal-type indexes define a market basket of goods in the current period, then usethe prices of those goods from past periods. The most familiar index of this type is the GDP deflator, used in the U.S. in the national income accounting to differentiate amounts in constant dollars from those in current dollars. WEIGHTAGE

    Weightage means preference of one product in comparison to other product. On theother hand we can say weightage means giving the value of the specific or particular matter or subject higher or lesser than that of or in comparison to simila

    r one. The factors of weightage are The more risk, the more weightage, the longer the period, more the risk, more the uses of Banks facility, less the weightageand last but not least less the Uses of Banks facility, more the benefit weightage and moral dimension or ethical values. COMPOSITE INDEX

    A grouping of equities, indexes or other factors combined in a standardized way,providing a useful statistical measure of overall market or sector performanceover time. Usually, a composite index has a large number of factors which are averaged together to form a product representative of an overall market or sector.For example, the Nasdaq Composite index is a market capitalization-weighted grouping of approximately 5,000 stocks listed on the Nasdaq market. These indexes are useful tools for measuring and tracking price level changes to an entire stock market or sector. Therefore, they provide a useful benchmark against which to

    measure an investor

    s portfolio. The goal of a well diversified portfolio is usually to outperform the main composite indexes.

    We often hear complaints from the public about inflation. It causes an increasein the household expenditure in a family. The household expenditure for every family is different. a. Complete Table 1 for your familys monthly expenditure for the year 2013

    Comment : My family used up money on education as education is important in ourlife. My family often buys new books every weeks as for us reading is the key tosuccess in life no matter how much the cost of the book. Instead, my family used least money on recreation due to busy of works and studies.

    b. If we want to compare the cost of living from one year to another, we have tocalculate the price index that involves some of the items mentioned above. i. In order to calculate the price index of all the items above, we have to considerthe average monthly expenses of any previous year as the base year. Select theappropriate year as the base year.

    Your family is planning to buy a new television set. a. You have conducted a survey on the price of the television for two different brands from three differentshops. You would like to make a comparison between two modes of payment, namely, cash payment and payment by installment. Table 4(a) shows the prices of televisions by cash payment in three different shops whereas Table 4(b) shows the prices of televisions by installment. Complete Table 4(a) and 4(b) using the data you obtained.

    b. Determine the brand and size of the television that you have decided to buy.Give your reasons based on the findings from part (a) above. I have decided to buy television from brand A with the size of 40 inch. The reasons of my choice arebecause the prices for brand A are more cheaper than brand B paid by cash nor installment. We can see it from my findings as the measure of dispersion for brand A is lower than brand B. The lower the measure of dispersion from the mean andstandard deviation from zero, the lower the prices of the televisions. So, I strongly choose television from brand A with the size 40 inch.

    c. The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs wishes to present the Fair Prices Shop Award for one of the above shops. If you are one of the panels forthis award, determine the shops that deserve the award. Do you consider the value of mean and the value of standard deviation in making your decision? Give your justification. In my opinion, the Fair Prices Shop Award should be given to Shop B. As one of the panels, I consider the value of mean and the value of standard deviation in making my decision as I think it is important for us to know theunit of dispersion for each shop. Here are the brief reason why I used the method. The mean of set of prices the sum of the prices divided by the number of prices. Along with the median and the mode, the mean is just one measure of the central tendency of a set of scores, but the mean is by far the most common and themost useful. Although the mean tells us where the center of a set of scores is,it does not tell us how variable those scores are. So in addition to a measureof central tendency, we need a measure of variability. Standard deviation measures how spread out the values in a data set are around the mean. More precisely,

    it is a measure of the average distance between the values of the data in the set and the mean. If the data values are all similar, then the standard deviationwill be low (closer to zero). If the data values are highly variable, then the standard variation is high (further from zero). So, from my calculation and findings it is clearly shown that Shop B have a lower measure of dispersion means theprices is maintain at one stage. So, in my opinion I will choose Shop B to receive the Fair Prices Shop Award.

    a. Your family has a fixed monthly income. In order to buy the television, yourfamily needs to make some adjustment on the various types of expenditure. [You can choose to pay by cash or by installment] Show the average monthly expenditurethat you have modified in a table. b. Assuming you has just started working with a monthly salary of RM 2500. You intend to save 10% of your salary every month. Plan your monthly expenditure as in Table 1 above and add other items such assavings and contributions to your parents.

    REFLECTIONWhile doing this project, I have spent countless hours doing this project. I realized that this subject is compulsory to me. Without it, I cant fulfill my big dreams and wishes.

    I used to Hate Additional Mathematics It always make me wonder why this subject is so difficult It always an absolute obstacle for me Throughout day and night I sacrificed my precious time to have fun From Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday And even the weekend that I always looking forward to From now on, I will domy best on every second That I will learn Additional Mathematics full of effort!!! And with the help of Madam Azzah
