Expert's answer

Q=20I/P

a) An equation for the point price elasticity is Ed = (∆Q/Q)/(∆P/P)

If I = 1/20 P, then the demand is unitary elastic.

b) An equation for the point price elasticity is Ed = (∆Q/Q)/(∆P/P)

If I > 1/20 P, then the good is necessity.

a) An equation for the point price elasticity is Ed = (∆Q/Q)/(∆P/P)

If I = 1/20 P, then the demand is unitary elastic.

b) An equation for the point price elasticity is Ed = (∆Q/Q)/(∆P/P)

If I > 1/20 P, then the good is necessity.
