markup?
b. Was raising the price profitable?

Assume the price of a dress shirt was put on sale "buy one get
one free". The original price was $100.00 per shirt. The sale
resulted in an increase of quantity sold in the same store for the
same period of time from 200 shirts to 800 shirts.
(a) Calculate the price elasticity of demand and interpret your
results.
(b). If the price of the shirt is further reduced by 10%, what
will happen?
