2. 2. What is a Direct Relationship between two variables? When one increases, the other increases and vice versa* Return to previous slide while in slide show 2
3. 3. What is the Slope of a line?The ratio of change in the variable on the vertical axis (the rise or fall) to change in the variable on the horizontal axis (the run). 3
4. 4. Slope = rise/run =∆vertical axis/∆horizontal axis = ∆Y/∆X 4

13. 13. Can Slope vary along a curve?Yes, the slope of a curve can vary along the curve 13

16. 16. How can I tell the difference between amovement along a curveand a shift in the curve? When price changes, there is movement along a curve. When something other than price changes, the whole curve shifts. 16
17. 17. What can change other than price?When income increases, for example, the whole demand curve shifts upward 17

23. 23. Graphs provide a means to clearlyshow economic relationships in two-dimensional space. Economic analysisis often concerned with two variablesconfined to the upper right-hand(northeast) quadrant of the coordinatenumber system. 23
24. 24. Y A direct relationship D4 C3 B Y=12 A X=101 X 10 20 30 40 24
25. 25. Y A An inverse relationship2015 B Y=5 C10 X=25 D5 X 25 50 75 100 25
26. 26. Y An independent relationship403020 A B C D X=1010 Y=0 X 10 20 30 40 26
27. 27. Y Positive slope of an upward-sloping curve43 A2 Y=21 X=30 X 10 20 30 40 27
28. 28. Y Negative slope of an downward-sloping curve2015 Y= A10 -105 X=50 X 25 50 75 100 28
29. 29. A shift in a curve occurs onlywhen the ceteris paribusassumption is relaxed and a thirdvariable not on either axis of thegraph is allowed to change 29

31. 31. 1. Straight line CD in Exhibit A-7 on the next page shows that a. increasing the value of X will increase the value of Y. b. decreasing the value of X will decrease the value of Y. c. there is a direct relationship between X and Y. d. all of the above. D. As the value of X increases, the value of Y increases, and vice versa; this is called a direct relationship. ©1999 South-Western College Publishing 31

33. 33. 2. In Exhibit A-7, the slope of straight line CD is a. 3. b. 1. c. -1. d. 1/2.D. The slope of a line is measured by the rise over the run, or a change in vertical divided by a change in the horizontal. For example, as Y increases from 5 units to 15, X increases from 0 to 20. The slope is 10 divided by 20. 33
34. 34. 3. In Exhibit A-7, the slope of straight line CD is a. positive. b. zero. c. negative. d. variable.A. When both X and Y move in the same direction, it is said that they are directly related to one another. 34
35. 35. 4. Straight line AB in Exhibit A-8 shows that a. increasing the value of X reduces the value of Y. b. decreasing the value of X increases the value of Y. c. there is an inverse relationship between X and Y. d. all of the above. D. When the value of X decreases, the value of Y increases and vice versa; this shows a direct relationship between X and Y. 35

37. 37. 5. As shown in Exhibit A-8, the slope of straight line AB a. decreases with increases in X. b. increases with increases in X. c. increases with decreases in X. d. remains constant with changes in X.D. The slope of a straight line stays the same between the two points on the line. 37
38. 38. 6. In Exhibit A-8, the slope of straight line AB is a. 3. b. 1. c. -1. d. -5.C. There is a one to one inverse ratio between a change in X and a change in Y. For example, as Y decreases from 20 units to 0, X increases from 0 to 20. The slope is -20 divided by 20. 38
39. 39. 7. A shift is a curve represents a change in a. the variable on the horizontal axis. b. the variable on the vertical axis. c. a third variable that is not on either axis. d. any variable that is relevant to the relationship being graphed. C. A shift occurs when something changes other than the price. 39
40. 40. 8. A change in a third variable not on either axis of a graph is illustrated with a a. horizontal or vertical line. b. movement along a curve. c. shift of a curve. d. point of intersection.C. When price changes the movement is always along a stationary curve. When something changes other than price, the whole curve shifts. 40
