P1 and Q1 show the price and quantity when there is no price floor respectively. When the floor is set at Pf, a price greater than P1, Q2 becomes the quantity demanded. However the quantity supplied is Q3. Thus the surplus of cheese is given by Q3-Q2. b) In cases where demand is elastic then the farmers’ complaint that their total revenue declined if correct. This is because with elastic demand, the % reduction in the quantity would exceed the % rise in the price leading to the fall in total revenue. c) Producers will benefit while taxpayers will lose...

...problems; The Rich and the Poor People from different social es have and produce problems, and it is, therefore, unfair to say that the rich are a social problem. It is a fact that the rich create fewer social problems compared to the poor. The wealthy can use their riches to treat their problems and compensate for the results of their problems thereby reducing the chances of creating social problems. The problem with the rich people’s morals is not a consequence of their life. The problem lies with the poor people’s perception about them. They hold developed negative stereotypes concerning the ethics of the rich. The unfortunate in the society perceive the rich as being untrustworthy... Social...

...Problems A social problem is an issue that a large section of or a whole community perceives it as undesirable (George, 2006). The notable social problems include prostitution, smoking, drug abuse and trafficking, poverty, crime, unemployment, teenage pregnancies, abortion, and alcoholism among others. Typically, the social problems affect and disrupt the society. The effects of the social problems can be detrimental with far-reaching implications that damage the community.

Sampling error is the error in the statistical figures that are obtained by using a representative sample of a population rather than examining the entire population.

In other words, it is a measure of the preciseness of the results obtained using the sample population. Yes, the sampling error can be equal to zero.
