    Why must a CAD equal a KAFA surplus?

    Maybe a more simple way to look at it is that a CAD means money is being paid out of the eco into the global eco. So in order to balance that K leaving the country(from BOGS or NY), there must be an inflow of I theoretically and thus, including net omissions and errors CAD + KAFA = 0.

    Mechanics question

    I'm assuming this question is for Maths, in which case you can't just use a formula without proving it because it is not given on the formula sheet. You may use the formula as a way to check your answer in maths but not as a form of working out.
