Question

Assume that the price elasticity if demand or Ed=.20. Given a 20%
increase in price, there with be a _____ decease in quantity
demanded.

Answer #1

Answer.

If the price elasticity of demand or Ed =.20.Given a 20% increase in price ,there will be a 4% decrease in quantity demanded.

Price elasticity of demand or Ed = .20.

Increase in price(percentage change in price) =20%

As per formula Elasticity of demand =% change in quantity demanded/ percentage change in price.

.20. =% change in quantity demanded/ 20%

% change in quantity demanded =20 % x .20 = 4%.

*(4% /20% =.20. % change in quantity demanded/ % change in price=Ed)

if
the price elasticity of demand ed is equal to 2 then a 20% increase
in quantity demanded would result in a
A. None of the above
B. 10% decrease in price
C. 10% increase in price
D. 40% increase in price
E. 20% decrease in price

Suppose that the price elasticity of demand for bus trips is
equivalent to │ED│ = 0.5. While the income elasticity of demand for
bus trips is equal to EI = - 0.1 and the cross elasticity of demand
for bus trips with respect to the price of gasoline is E Bus,
Gasoline = - 0.2.
to. Would an increase in the price of the bus ticket increase or
decrease the revenue of the bus company?
b. If the price of...

Problem-solving exercises: (a) Use the arc-approximation formula
to calculate the price-elasticity of demand coefficient of a firm's
product demand between the (quantity, price) points of (12, $20)
and (18, $16). (b) Calculate the cross-price elasticity of demand
coefficient of a firm's product X, given that a 10% increase in the
price of its close substitute, product Y, causes the quantity
demand of product X to increase by 6%. c) Calculate the
income-elasticity of demand coefficient for a product for which...
