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


Measure of change in a set of prices, consisting of a series of numbers arranged so that a comparison of the values for any two periods or places will show the change in prices between periods or the difference in prices between places. Pri ce indexes were first developed to measure changes in the cost of living in orde r to determine the wage increases necessary to maintain a constant standard of l iving. There are two basic types. Laspeyres-type indexes define a market basket of goods in a base period, then use the prices for those goods to examine change over space and time. In its simplest form, this is simply the ratio of what tho se goods cost today to what they cost in the base period. The two most familiar indexes of this type are the consumer price index (CPI) and the producer price i ndex (PPI). The CPI measures changes in retail prices in such component parts as food, clothing, and shelter. The PPI (formerly called the wholesale price index ) measures changes in the prices charged by manufacturers and wholesalers. Pasch al-type indexes define a market basket of goods in the current period, then use the prices of those goods from past periods. The most familiar index of this typ e is the GDP deflator, used in the U.S. in the national income accounting to dif ferentiate amounts in constant dollars from those in current dollars. WEIGHTAGE Weightage means preference of one product in comparison to other product. On the other hand we can say weightage means giving the value of the specific or parti cular 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 longe r the period, more the risk, more the uses of Bank’s facility, less the weightage and last but not least less the Uses of Bank’s facility, more the benefit weightag e 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 performance over time. Usually, a composite index has a large number of factors which are av eraged together to form a product representative of an overall market or sector. For example, the Nasdaq Composite index is a market capitalization-weighted gro uping of approximately 5,000 stocks listed on the Nasdaq market. These indexes a re useful tools for measuring and tracking price level changes to an entire stoc k 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 usu ally to outperform the main composite indexes.

b. State four ways of weightage representations. Find the examples of the repres entations using internet or any printed materials. Degree For example :

My family often buys new books every weeks as for us reading is the key to success in life no matter how much the cost of the book. Instead, my family use d 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 to calculate the price index that involves some of the items mentioned above. i. I n order to calculate the price index of all the items above, we have to consider the average monthly expenses of any previous year as the base year. Select the appropriate year as the base year.

Make a conclusion about your family’s expenditure based on your findin gs. From the findings, I can see the increasing of my family’s expenditure especia lly on recreation. When all of us are bigger, more pressure on us as more thing have to be done. So, spending time with family for recreation will be the best s olution for us to handle the pressure. = 36698 360 = 108(35) + 108(35) + 128(41) + 118(38) + 105(34) + 189(60) + 127(40) + 142(45) + 101(32) 35 + 35 + 41 + 38 + 34 + 60 + 40 + 45 + 32


Your family is planning to buy a new television set. a. You have conducted a sur vey on the price of the television for two different brands from three different shops. 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 televi sions by cash payment in three different shops whereas Table 4(b) shows the pric es of televisions by installment. Complete Table 4(a) and 4(b) using the data yo u obtained. Cash payment Size of Television (inches) 24 32 40 24 32 40 Price (RM) Shop A 1650 2050 2999 1 900 2300 3050 Shop B 1900 2300 3150 2300 2500 3300 Table 4(a) Shop C 1500 1980 2 890 1650 2050 3000 Mean Price (RM) 1683 2110 3013 1950 2283 3117 Standard Deviat ion (RM) 168.4 137.4 106.6 267.7 188.2 123.1 Brand A B Payment by installment Brand Size of Television (inches) 24 32 40 24 32 40 Price (RM) Shop A 1950 2350 3299 2200 2600 3350 Shop B 2185 2585 3435 2585 2785 3585 Table 4(b) Shop C 1950 2430 3340 2100 2500 3450 Mean Price (RM) 2028 2455 3358 2295 2628 3462 Standard Deviation (RM) 116.7 97.55 56.96 209.1 125.3 83.45 A B

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 b uy television from brand A with the size of ’40 inch. The reasons of my choice are because the prices for brand A are more cheaper than brand B paid by cash nor i nstallment. We can see it from my findings as the measure of dispersion for bran d A is lower than brand B. The lower the measure of dispersion from the mean and standard deviation from zero, the lower the prices of the televisions. So, I st rongly choose television from brand A with the size ’40 inch. c. The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs wishes to present the Fai r Prices Shop Award for one of the above shops. If you are one of the panels for this award, determine the shops that deserve the award. Do you consider the val ue of mean and the value of standard deviation in making your decision? Give you r justification. In my opinion, the Fair Prices Shop Award should be given to Sh op B. As one of the panels, I consider the value of mean and the value of standa rd deviation in making my decision as I think it is important for us to know the unit of dispersion for each shop. Here are the brief reason why I used the meth od. The mean of set of prices the sum of the prices divided by the number of pri ces. Along with the median and the mode, the mean is just one measure of the cen tral tendency of a set of scores, but the mean is by far the most common and the most 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 measure of central tendency, we need a measure of variability. Standard deviation measur es 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 se t and the mean. If the data values are all similar, then the standard deviation will be low (closer to zero). If the data values are highly variable, then the s tandard variation is high (further from zero). So, from my calculation and findi ngs it is clearly shown that Shop B have a lower measure of dispersion means the prices is maintain at one stage. So, in my opinion I will choose Shop B to rece ive the Fair Prices Shop Award.


a. Your family has a fixed monthly income. In order to buy the television, your family needs to make some adjustment on the various types of expenditure. [You c an choose to pay by cash or by installment] Show the average monthly expenditure that you have modified in a table. b. Assuming you has just started working wit h 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 as savings and contributions to your parents.

REFLECTION While doing this project, I have spent countless hours doing this project. I rea lized that this subject is compulsory to me. Without it, I can’t fulfill my big dr eams and wishes. I used to Hate Additional Mathematics… It always make me wonder why this subject i s so difficult… It always an absolute obstacle for me… Throughout day and night… I sac rificed my precious time to have fun… From… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Fr iday… And even the weekend that I always looking forward to… From now on, I will do my best on every second… That I will learn Additional Mathematics full of effort!! ! And with the help of Madam Azzah…
