Explaining Change
Hi there,
I hope somebody can help me with this , or point me in the right direction. I have two calculations where the result has changed because of different values for the variables:
5000 * 0.98 * 0.06 * 0.02 = 5.88
5000 * 0.92 * 0.05 * 0.05 = 11.5
for illustration, lets call the variables a, b & c ( 5000 * a * b * c = x )
The total change is 11.5  5.88 = 5.62 .What I would like to know is, how much of that change is caused by each variable? ( a , b and c )
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
