Homework Answers

Answer #1

64. Option C. 1.8

Explanation: Coefficient of cross-price elasticity of demand = % change in quantity demanded / % change in price = 45/25 = 1.8

65. Option D. None of the above

Explanation: When the price of one good increases and the quantity demanded of another good increase because of that, the goods are substitutes.

66. Option C. The price elasticity of supply is very inelastic

Explanation: It takes time to make an adjustment to supply. So, in the very short-run, supply is inelastic.
