## Introduction to Linear Supply Equations

A new video on Linear Supply equations. In this lesson we’ll learn how to derive an equation representing the supply of a good using the data in a supply schedule or curve.

## Linear Demand Equations – Shifts in Demand (changes in the ‘a’ and the ‘b’ variables)

In our 3rd lesson on linear demand equations we’ll learn how a change in a non-price determinant of demand can cause the ‘a’ variable to change and a shift inwards or outwards of the demand curve along the quantity axis.

In our final lesson on linear demand equations we’ll look at how a change in a non-price determinant of demand can cause the demand curve to pivot along the quantity axis, changing the ‘b’ variable, resulting in either an increase or a decrease in the responsiveness of consumers to price changes.

## Introduction to Linear Demand Equations

This is an update to the 2012 version of the lesson introducing how to determine an equation for demand using price and quantity data from a demand schedule or a demand curve. In parts 2 and 3 of this lesson we’ll examine how changes in price and the non-price determinants of demand will lead to movements along a demand curve or a change in the ‘a’ and ‘b’ variables and a shift in demand.

## The Determinants of Demand (NEW 2016!)

In our third and final lesson introducing Demand we explore the non-price determinants of a good’s demand, changes to which will cause the demand for a good to increase or decrease and the demand curve to shift.
