The calculated percent of the 3rd quater of year 2000 is 95.35 but while taken down to calculate the average percent it was entered as 91.35. Therefore the average percent of the 3rd quater should be 95.38 and there should be a difference of 2 ?

Thanks. I will check and if I have made a mistake I will correct it. However the idea should still be clear (and I think the printed answer in the notes is still correct 馃檪 )

Not the whole exercise – just extracts from it (but you need to understand the whole exercise to be able to be able to attempt extracts). You will find plenty of examples of how it can be asked in your Revision Kit (you must buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers, because they have lots of exam-standard questions for you to practice).

Hi I think there is an error in the video, when calculating the Multiplicative Model quarterly average the Q3 amount was written as 91.35% and not 95.35%, just want to know if i miss understood.

The reason I am asking is because the comments have disappeared from all the video lectures and there is a slight tuning prior to the point in the video where they say “This is a lecture from open tuition…….” and also the headings to all chapters are printed in red (or blue I am guessing) and not written with the black marker like it was previously…..?

Why is it that the actual value (when calculating seasonal variation) is taken from the third quarter; why is it that the first two quarters of the year 2000 are not considered?

For additive model, it should add up to 0 because the variations are above or less than 0?

Correct 馃檪

will all of the above be required in the exam?

Yes – you are correct. Sorry 馃檨

The answer at the back of the free lecture notes is correct 馃檪

Have the videos been updated?? I see a few differences compared to the videos that I saw last week……

You can have, because nothing has changed since last week 馃檪

I don’t understand. The lectures have not changed, and all the comments are still here 馃檪

Because (as I do explain in the lecture) there is nothing to compare the first two (and the last two) quarters with.

Ohh I get it now…makes sense thank you!

Great 馃檪
