#### Solution Preview

Answer (a):
P=50 - 5Q
=> Q = 10 - 0.2P
The slope is 0.2. Thus for unitary elasticity:
1 = 0.2x(P/Q)
=>P/Q = 5
=> P = 5Q

Substituting this above ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution answers a lot of questions about the demand elasticity. The output rate for demand unitary elastics are analyzed.
