how to calculate and explain private savings?

please help and thanks

Hello,

 

National savings (S) = private savings + public savings

 

Private savings is calculated by subtracting consumption or C from disposable income, which is represented as (Y-T), with Y being the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and T being tax payments. The expression (T-G) refers to revenue received by the government through taxes less government expenses. This is defined as public savings.

 

S = (Y-T-C) + (T-G)

 

Private savings = Y-T-C

 

given that Y=10,000, T=1,500 and C=6,000

 

10,000 - 1,500 - 6,000 = 2,500

 

Private savings = 2,500

 

Hope this helps!

s=(y10000-t1500-c6000)+t1500-g1700=

 

s=2500+(-1700)=2300

 

if T is less than G tpublic svgs is negative, therefore represents a budget deficit

 

is this correct?

what about I=3300-100r; r=real interest. do I have to account for this in my calculation?
