    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.
