The elasticity of supply is 1 and the elasticity of demand is 2. If demand increases by ten (10%), by what percent will price change?

Expert's answer

If salaries are S1 = 36,000 and S2 = 38,000, then we need to know the amount of quantity demanded of some goods to determine income elasticity.

If the elasticity of supply is 1 and the elasticity of demand is 2, and if demand increases by ten (10%), then the price will decrease by 10%/2 = 5%.

If the elasticity of supply is 1 and the elasticity of demand is 2, and if demand increases by ten (10%), then the price will decrease by 10%/2 = 5%.
