Hi
Example 2 (chapter 12, OT notes).
is it possible to calculate the time taken for the 7th unit using the tabular approach ?
OR we must use algebraic approach for such purposes (i.e. tabular approach cannot be used) ?
Sorry if this seems obvious.
By the tabular approach I assume you mean using the doubling rule.
If it is not doubling then you have to use the formula. To get the time for the 7th units you would need to calculate the total time for 7 units using the formula, and subtract the total time for the 6 units using the formula – the doubling rule would not be applicable to either.
(This is explained in example 3).
I do hope that you are watching the lectures and not just using the notes on their own – that would be a complete waste of time because the notes are not mean to be a Study Text. It is in the lectures that I work through the examples and explain and expand on the notes. If you are not watching the lectures for any reason then you must buy Study Text from one of the ACCA Approved Publishers and study from there.
