1. Given the following demand function, calculate the following:
a. Price elasticity of demand
b, Income elasticity of demand
c. Advertising elasticity of demand
Qx = -1000Px + 100Y + 0.08Pop -1,000,000i + 0.01A
2. Given the following supply function, calculate the elasticity of supply.
Qx = 4000Px -3700PT -50,000PL - 400,000i -1000T
Solution to question 1:
a) The formula for the price elasticity of demand is:
ηd = ...
In this solution, it is shown how elasticities of demand and supply are calculated. The elasticities shown in the calculation are: price elasticity of demand, income elasticity of demand and advertising elasticity of demand.
