Good day Sir,
When using the formula is it that two points need to be calculated….the point requested in the question eg: 30 units and the avg time for the more than the given? I am not quiet clear on how to use the y=axb formula.
I don’t know what you mean by ‘two points need to be calculated’.
I think you need to watch my free lectures on learning curves.
The lectures are a complete course for Paper F5 and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
Dude, two points you mean Y=a(xb)
Yes! you will need at least 2 figures for example either, a and (xb), Y & a, Y & (xb) etc. as long as you have 2 figures you can figure out the 3rd figure.
Imran: Please don’t answer in this forum – it is the Ask the Tutor forum.
But what on earth are you talking about anyway? You only ever need use the formula in the exam to calculate y i.e. the average time per batch or unit. (And anyway the formula is not y = a(xb), it is y = ax^b). You are never expected to use the formula in any other way.
Also, you only need the formula when it does not involve doubling – if it is doubling then it is easier and quicker to use the doubling rule rather than using the formula.
I really do suggest that you watch my free lectures on this!!
