# A Deep Explanation Of Well-Known Economic Terms

Success Quarterly is a tech and business blog that focuses on the intersection of Silicon Valley and Hollywood, including technology, business, mobile, entertainment, media, and related topics.

The price of items in a category or area of your wardrobe will constantly be rising due to **additional costs like shipping**, taxes, and giving yourself for lunch every day!

These extra expenses are *called indirect costs* and they’re very expensive because you have to include them when calculating how much profit an item makes.

Indirect cost examples: shipping, logistics, returns and refunds, marketing, etc.

The **average fashionista spends around** $150 per trip to buy new clothes so it can quickly add up. It is important to know what types of fees you pay while shopping to ensure you are getting the best deal possible.

Luckily, we have compiled information on some of the pricier fees that most **major retailers incur**. With our tips, you will know what prices are really like.

## Definition of the term X

In personal finance, an “X” is an expenditure that you can eliminate from your budget. The word “excess” is typically used to describe this term because it adds up quickly!

Most *people start spending money* in their twenties, and then continue to spend heavily as they grow older. This *expensive habit often times goes unnoticed* or ignored until years down the road when they realize they have no savings and nothing new to buy.

Fortunately, there are ways to recognize and fix this problem early on. One of the most effective strategies is establishing an economy x limit.

What is the economy x limit? It is the amount of unnecessary spending that you have per unit time. For example, if you spend $1,000 at the mall every weekend, then your economic x-limit is $500 per week (or 10 busy weekends).

This way, you will be limiting yourself to only half of your weekly budget for an entire week! You will also be on track to save some serious money in the long run.

## The difference between X and Y

In both of these examples, you can use equation to find the **extra amount paid due** to economy size.

In the first example, we are asked how much more expensive it is to eat at an expensive restaurant than a normal one.

We know that if something costs twice as much as another thing, then it is costlier by double. That means in our case, eating at an expensive restaurant is 2 times more expensive than eating at a non-expensive restaurant.

So, what is the price of a hamburger and salad at a cheap restaurant? We will call this value of the food at a low priced restaurant $value1.

What is the price of the same meal at an expensive restaurant? We will refer to this as $value2.

Now, what is the average value of all foods and drinks people consume while they are not in budgeted circumstances? We will refer to this as the national average. It is very hard to come up with a precise number for this, but most sources say it is around $**100 per person per week**.

That means on a weekly basis, we have a total cost of approximately $400 worth of food for each person. This **includes things like groceries**, snacks, and meals at restaurants, etc.

EconomyX – What is it?

The term “economy” refers to the area outside your house or apartment where you live.

## Difference between X and Z

In general, **cost per credit line** is higher for people with lower income or less wealthy lifestyle choices than it is for more affluent individuals who can spend money on additional services such as health care or private schooling.

This is because most banks calculate their **cost per credit line using** the average balance of all consumers in a given category. More expensive customers tend to have higher average balances, so they **get proportionally cheaper overall service**. This is why even though millionaires pay more total interest per year on their loans, they *may receive better service due* to their higher income.

By calculating costs this way, it becomes clear that there are large differences in economy class pricing depending on what level of spending you’re looking at.

## Difference between X and W

In our last article, we discussed what is the most important cost component of your business- owning equipment. Today we are going to **discuss something different –** how much extra money you have in economy size batches as opposed to professional level supplies.

The term “economy” refers not only to lower price products, but also less quality goods. This can be confusing because sometimes companies that market themselves as being in the economy bracket are actually low quality or poor materials.

I *would never recommend using* an economy bottle of paint for a project or *using cheap plastic cups* for drinks at a party!

Economy bottles still contain a adequate amount of product and will do their job just as well as a more expensive one, it’s just not as good. The same goes for snacks, beverages, and decorations you purchase while hosting a party!

Having enough supplies for guests is a pretty basic thing, so why spend more than you need to? By keeping an eye on your budget, you can pick up some great deals from sites and advertisements where they advertise discounts and coupons.

## Difference between X and V

In any equation, there are two variables that must be replaced with numbers to make sense of the equation.

The first variable is called the coefficient or offset of the term in the equation. This can be seen as a scale factor for that term in the equation. For example, if the equation was $2x + 3y = 5$, then the x would have a 2 after it, and the y would have a 3 after it.

The second variable is referred to as the independent variable or multiplier. The independent variable represents something known so that when you use it along with the other variable, you get an outcome.

For our previous example, this could be number of **timeslier hours worked per week**. When we multiply time by anything, it goes up!

Combining these two concepts gives us what is know as the economy form of the polynomial. We add together all of the terms in the equation (in our case, x and y) and divide the result by the dependent variable.

This results in the third part of the equation which is equal to the *constant c plus one half times* the difference between average hourly earnings and *average weekly standard hour earnings divided* by *average weekly standard hour employment*.

So what does all of this mean? Let’s look at some examples.

## Difference between X and B

In our examples, we used numbers in place of X and B. Let’s do that again, but this **time use** your number choice for X and compare it to B!

If you choose 2 as your X, then B is 1. If you *pick 3* as your X, then B is 2.

This *makes sense right*? Two is always less than one so B is never bigger than X.

Three is always more than two, so B is always at least twice as big as X.

Let’s **try another example using prices instead** of numbers.

If you buy A for $10, then B must be at least $20 because it costs at least double the price of A. The same goes with choosing C over A- even though both cost the same amount, B has to be at least twice as expensive as C.

## Difference between X and A

In both versions of the equation, you can swap out difference for extra, but it makes more sense to use extra over difference because there is no cost associated with having enough money.

Using our example from before, if your monthly income equals your monthly expenses, then you do not have an amount saved up every month! You are spending all of your savings each month on living costs!

The easier way to think about this is in terms of what would happen if you had unlimited funds right now. If you had a budget limit of $1,*000 per week spent*, how **much additional money could** you spend?

The answer is **zero dollars —** you already have a budget limit! Because even though you may want to **buy something expensive today**, you cannot afford to do so without going into debt!

In fact, most people are in that situation where they feel like they are constantly short on cash due to poor budgeting or saving habits. It can be difficult to stick to budgets when you don’t have too many resources.

## Difference between X and S

In general, less expensive cars are *considered economy cars due* to their price. Companies make economies by using similar parts as well as materials that are in-expensive or even cheap themselves. For example, if you look at any car with an upright silhouette, then it is likely to be *designed around straight lines* and squares which reduce production costs.

More expensive vehicles use more elegant designs that cost slightly more to produce but **still remain within budget**. Take a closer look at how the shape of the vehicle is influenced by **external factors like weather** and road conditions. If the vehicle has sleek curves or beautiful shapes, this adds to its aesthetic value and thus its market appeal. This also increases its perceived value.
