The market demand for cotton socks is given by:
Q=1,000+.5I-400P+200P'

where,
Q = Annual demand in number of pairs
I = Average income in dollars per year
P = Price of one pair of cotton socks
P' = Price of one pair of wool socks

Given that I = $20,000, P=$10, and P'=$5, determine:

A. The price elasticity, e(Q,P)
B. The income elasticity, e(Q,I)
C. The cross price elasticity, e(Q,P')

Solution Summary

This solution looks at economic elasticities (price, income, cross price).

Market researchers at Chrysler estimated the demand for their new Chrysler Crossfire sports cars as follows:
QC = 1,050,000 - 95PC + 14.25M + 60PBMW + 25PP
Where QC is the quantity of Chrysler Crossfires

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

A book publisher has the following demand function for the firm's novels (Qx):
Qx = 12,000-5,000Px + 5I + 500Pc
where Px is the price charged for the firm's novels, I is income per Capita, and Pc is the price of books from competing publishers.
Assume that the initial values of Px, I, and Pc are $5, $10,000, and $6, respecti
