Qd = 50 - 3P + 2Po, P = $3, Po =$6.
a. The price elasticity at the average values of P and Po is: Edp= -3 and Edpo = -2, so the demand for both goods is elastic. The price of the good can be decreased in this case to increase total revenues.
b. The cross elasticity at the average values of P and Po is zero, because these two goods are neither complements, nor substitutes.
c. To calculate if the good is inferior, a necessity or a luxury, we need to know the change in income of the consumer.
