a) DA + DB = AD
I used the following two equations when calculating the aggregate demand for each of the consumer groups:
ADA = 20,000,000(5-0.2p)
ADB = 20,000,000(6-0.3p)
The two consumer groups overlapped between the boundary 0 to 20 therefore from 20 to 25, I used the aggregate demand equation for consumer A and as a result the 2 equations I used to calculate the total aggregate demand were:
ADT = 20,000,000(11-0.5p) 0 ≤ p ≤ 20
ADT = 20,000,000(5-0.2p) 20 < p ≤ 25
ADT = 0 25 > P

An algorithm is a methodical, logical rule or procedure that guarantees solving a particular problem. An algorithm could be used in this situation if Jake continued to think of answers until he got the correct one. An algorithm would either help or hurt Jake, because he may think of the answer soon after he began thinking of possible solutions, but on the other hand, it is also possible that it could take Jake a long time to come up with a solution.

What were the major commodities or goods being traded in the world between 1450 and 1750? What effect did this trade have on the people living in these lands? How did they fit into “the global economy”? (I was very confused on the third part of this question)
The major trades during this time period spices and silver. “Spanish America alone produce perhaps 85 percent of the worlds silver during the early modern era.” Fur was another major commodity being traded “like other aspects of imperial expansion, the fur trade was highly competitive enterprise,” along with slaves, silk, sugar, and manufactured goods. These trades affected the people positively and

A Question of Sovereignty
America: home of the free and land of the brave, or so that is what we are taught about the nation in which we live. But just how far has this nation come in order to become “free”? What we may take for granted today, was perhaps the most amazing thing to happen in English and American history then. Democracy, or commonly known as the voice of the people, was met with much hesitation initially. When it comes to the idea of popular sovereignty, our nation took a long time to get there, and the freedoms we enjoy today came at a hefty price for our predecessors.
It was in the 17th century that the initial

Last Tuesday evening, a heated argument broke out over whose turn it was to wash the dishes. Burton announced that he couldn’t bear to live with the others a moment longer and offered to buy out Henry and Lester.

An example for question 2 in AQA Language Paper 2
Eddie is a typical modern teenager who is mischievous and talks to his father in a 'mocking voice' emphasising their close relationship and good humour they share. Henry however is distant and more formal with his father addressing him in a respectful tone, 'my dear Father' emphasising the difference in status between them.
From Source A we can see that Eddie is very care-free and this may be due to how Rayner treats Eddie. On the other hand, in my opinion, Henry has a more strict and disciplining father. This may contribute widely to how Henry behaves and we can see how formal he is while writing to his father. This also shows the distance

Evidence Versus Faith; The Eternal Question
The concept of God is as old as humanity itself; since we were agricultural tribes staring at the stars we have fantasized and concocted numerous different versions of the same idea. However, with the concept of God there is always the ever-increasing idea and pondering of if God truly exists and the question of if we need tangible evidence or simply blind faith. Batter my heart, three-person’d God by John Donne raises the long-asked question of whether us as human beings can accept an all-powerful creator or God into our souls and surrender ultimately to him or if it is

Mick’s case is dependent on whether he was in contract with Yummy Chocolate corporation or not and whether Yummy Chocolate have breached that contract. If there is no contract the second issue of breach does not arise. It can be argued that the offer was merely an invitation to treat. In Partridge v. Crittenden 1, the plaintiff placed an ad in Cage and Aviary Birds which stated "Bramblefinch cocks and hens, 25s each". He was convicted of the offence of offering for sale a live wild bird. His conviction was quashed on appeal, where the court held that advertisements were merely invitations to treat so that he could not have committed the offence of "offering for

Romeo and Juliet essay by William Shakespea. Essay question: Why did 'The pair of star-crossed lovers' take their lives?The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is one of the most dramatic and influential love stories of all time. The play, written by William Shakespeare in the late sixteenth century tells the anguishing tale of 'star-crossed lovers' taking their lives to be together in death. This essay will discuss three points that I believe to be partly a cause of their deaths. Was it the prolonged feud that caused them to die? Was Friar Lawrence at fault, or could it have been merely fate? I will discuss these topics in detail and evaluate what I think was to blame for their tragic deaths.The

However, if judges were simply applying the law when making decisions, then it would not matter who was fulfilling that role, because, everybody would reach the same decision in every case, unless a judge happened to misapply the law, in which case another court could put him right. But judges reach very different decisions upon the same facts; there is no common agreement as to what the law is, and Hart argues that in many cases the judges are not only applying the existing law, but they are making new law.

Ms. Mavis L. Wanczyk is a very lucky person. The odds of winning the powerball jackpots stands at 1 in 88 quadrillion or 1015 (Picchi, 2018). If we assume each ticket is $2, we can make the following ROI calculation: $759,000,000 / ($2 x 1015) = 0.000000008625. This means, for every dollar spent, you would likely see an estimated return of $8.625E-09 before taxes, therefore, my first suggestion is not to play the lottery if you’re trying to be financially savvy.
Yet since she won, we are assuming an ordinary annuity. If we take the winning value of $759 million in 30 annuity payments with a 5% yearly increase, her initial payment on CF0 would be $11,424,039.23. We can see the full

In literature, one of the most explored themes, from the ancient Greek to modern times, is
the inevitability of man’s own demise. The uncertainty of an afterlife serves as a catalyst for
man’s innate struggle to gain immortality. This constant stream of consciousness is particularly
evident in the short story the “Epic of Gilgamesh.” Within this folklore, the reader is immersed in
the struggle that death is inevitable. Death is explored multiple times, most particularly, in the
fall of Humbaba, Enkidu’s death, the destruction of Shurrupak and Gilgamesh own expiry. These
examples serve to demonstrate to the reader that man cannot achieve the ultimate status of
