Hi, can someone share Private / Public / National Savings formula pls ?

Nominal GDP = Multiply Ps & Qs from same year (2015 ) Answer 215,000

Real GDP = Multiply each year Qs by base year (2015) Ps. Answer 130,000

GDP Deflator = Nominal GDP/Real GDP x100 Answer 166

Case 2 Formulas

Public Savings = T - G

Private savings = Y - T - C

National Savings = Public Savings + Private Savings

Thanks a ton.

could you pls just confirm the answers ?

a)      Private savings

Private saving = Y-T-C

= (5000-2000-2500)

= 500

b)     Public savings

Public savings=T-G

= (2000-2000)

= 0

c)      National savings

National savings= Public savings + Private savings

= (500+0)

= 500

All answers are correct

C = 250 + 0.75(Y −T)

as per illustration it shows 2500 ?

minus 2500 with the value of Y and T then you will get the answer

thanks a lot, much appreciated Sis.
