The demand function for kingston's product is given by
logQ = 2.01 -0.148LogP + 0.25Log Z

Q = the quantity demanded (in tons) of its product, P = the price ( in dollars per ton), and Z = the price(in dollars of a rival product

a. Calculate the price elastic of demand
b. Calculate the cross elasticity of demand between kingston's product and the rival product.

Elasticity of demand

Using the "arc formula" and the data from the table below, compute where possible the own- price and income elasticities of demand. (remember that these elasticities are computed holding all other variables constant).

Price quantity price of related goods income
$10 600 $20 $ 16,000
$10 600 $30 $22,000
$12 500 $30 $22,000
$10 500 $20 $22,000

A. Compute owner price elasticity of demand?

B. Demand is -------- (elastic, inelastic, Unitary elastic)?

C. The cross price elasticity of demand= ------- ?

d. The related good is a------- ?

E. The income elasticity =------- /

F. The good is a ...... good?
