    If I were a painter and the price of my paint increased per galloon from $3.00 per galoon to $3.50 a galoon this causes my paint to drop from 35 galoons a month to 20 galoons a month. compute the price elasticity of demand for paint and show calculations., decide whether the demand is elastic, unitary elastic or inelastic, then how do I explain my reasoning and interpret my results?
