Income elasticity of demand="\\frac{Percentage\\ change\\ in\\ quantity\\ demand}{Percentage\\ change\\ in\\ income}"

"=\\frac{(D_1-D_0)\/(D_1+D_0)}{I_1-I_0)\/(I_1+I_0)}"

For apartments:

Income elasticity of demand="\\frac{(2000-1000)\/(2000+1000)}{10000-5000)\/(10000+5000)}"

=1

For burgers;

Income elasticity of demand="=\\frac{(12000-10000)\/(12000+10000)}{10000-5000)\/(10000+5000)}"

=0.2727
