    You don't have to answer all of the parts I just need help gathering an understanding for finding the determinants.

    A) People decide to have more children, could mean more demand shifts to the right in the short run, as the population increases, and demand increases. In the long run, it could also mean a shift to the right in supply, as the labour force increases in population. B) If there's a strike, there's less supply, as no workers are working, so there'd be a shift to the left in supply, making supply more scarce, and therefore making prices rise. C) Usually, new technology (which is efficient) produces more supply and output, so supply may shift to the right as new technology is introduced. I'm sure you have a good understanding now... http://staffwww.fullcoll.edu/fchan/Micro/1determinants_of_demand.htm Here's a site to look up more on determinants, but it is just basically shifts of the supply and demand curves, due to different logical thinking reasons.
