P=Po +-px [This represents a linear equation with positive or negative slope]
Q=Qo+-qx [This represents a linear equation with positive or negative slope]

In other words, "q" more(+) or less(-) units per month can be sold if the price is decreased(-)/increased(+) by $"p" in multiples of 1, 2, ..or "x". The slopes "p" and "q" are different for different commodoties.
