Answer #1

**a)**

**Equation of Exchange:-**

Equation of exchange represents a mathematical equation that
shows the relatonship between the 4 variables. The four variables
are :- **money supply, velocity of money supply, average
price level and index of expenditure.**

The equation is stated as:-

**M*V = P*T**

Where,

- M represents the sum of all the money supply which is circulated in the economy .
- V reprents the velocity of money supply which means the average number of times that certain currency units have chnaged hands per year.
- P refers to the price level of goods during the year
- T represents the index of real value of the aggregate transactions.

According to the Equation of exchange, it is clerified that the total amount of money which changes hands in market or economy is equal to the total money value of the goods in the market or economy.

A. Give the equation of exchange. For each variable
