Looking to form a study group with a few people in and around Zurich.

Main idea would be to study together, motivate one another and to have fun while we’re going for it.

Elasticity of Demand

For a linear demand curve, at the price where elasticity is -2.0, reducing prices will:


increase total revenue and we are not at the point of maximum total revenue.



decrease total revenue and we are not at the point of maximum total revenue.



increase total revenue and we are at the point of maximum total revenue.

The Number of Annual Compounding Periods Needed for an Investment to Reach a Specific Value

You are interested in determining how long it will take an investment of
€10,000,000 to double in value. The current interest rate is 7 percent compounded
annually. How many years will it take €10,000,000 to double to €20,000,000?

So I basicly do:

PV = 10.000.000 // FV = 20.000.000 CHS // r = 7 // and ask my HP12C for N than I get 11

But the answer in the book is 10,24, what is happening? The result looks right to me, how its not 11 in the book?

ps: is the question example 19 in TVM, page 343, can somebody help, please?
