Expert's answer
Muhammad Raza Company is producer of pastries.
Qx = 20,000-10,000Px+10I+1000Pc
Where Px is the price charged for Raza pastries, I is the income per capita and Pc is the price of pastries form competing producer.
(i) The effect a price increase would have on total revenues will be negative, because the demand is elastic and total revenue will decrease.
(ii) Sale of pastries would decrease during a period of raising income, because the competing good is more preferable for the customers.
(iii) If competing producers raise their prices, the demand for this product will increase.
