Question 1

Suppose that a store decreases the price of cereal from $4.3 to$3.6. As a result, quantity demanded increases from 210 to 240.

Using the mid-point elasticity approach, calculate price elasticity of demand.

Hint

Question 2

Suppose that a store decreases the price of peanut butter from $4.1 to$3.8. As a result, quantity demanded increases from 190 to 260.

Based on this information, find the price elasticity, which you can use to classify the demand curve as price elastic, unit elastic or inelastic.

Hint

Question 3

Consider the following demand schedule for books.

PriceQuantity Demanded
$10387$20367
$30347$40327
$50307$60287
$70267$80247

Suppose that the store increases the price of books from $50 to$60.

Using the mid-point approach, calculate the percentage change in quantity demanded.

Make sure that you include a negative sign if necessary.

Hint

Question 4

PriceQuantity Demanded
$7391$14377
$21363$28349
$35335$42321
$49307$56293

Suppose that the store increases the price of shoes from $42 to$49.

Using the mid-point approach, calculate price elasticity of demanded.

Hint

PriceQuantity Demanded
$9357$18312
$27267$36222
$45177$54132
$6387$7242

Suppose that the store increases the price of jeans from $9 to$18.

Based on this information classify the demand curve.
