The purchasers of product B have an income elasticity of demand of 1.2. If their income increases by 10%, then by how much should Mickey's sales from product B increase? (in %, not dollars or units, and be sure to put the % sign)
In economics, income elasticity of demand measures the responsiveness of the demand for a good to a change in the income of the people demanding the good, ceteris paribus. It is calculated as the ratio of the percentage change in demand to the percentage change in income. For example, if, in response to a 10% increase in income, the demand for a good increased by 20%, the income elasticity of demand would be 20%/10% = 2. So, in our example if their income increases by 10%, then Mickey's sales from product B will increase by 10%*1.2 = 12%.
I'm extremely satisfied with your work. Excellent quality. Always.
Just have a question. Do you also provide help in understanding a concept? Not an assignment but for my learning. If certain concepts in the book are not clear, can you provide a simplified explanation of it using math that's understandable? You can charge the equivalent of an assignment.
Some things in the chapter attachments I sent you are not clear. They do not have much solved examples either.
Thanks a lot,
