Answer to Question #42272 in Microeconomics for abdullah
Older person’s price elasticity of demand = 4.0
Price elasticity of demand by all others = 2.0
Market price elasticity of demand = 3.0
All demanders are either older people, or others.
10 a. If the MC = AC = 4 for widgets, what price would a simple monopolist charge?

10 c. How might it solve one of those problems?
product is: (P - MC)/P = 1/Ed
1 - 4/P = 1/3
4/P = 2/3
P = $6
20. There will be a problem how to charge different prices and how to dispose of the reselling widgets between different price groups.
