profit=TR-TC=P*Q-AVC*Q-TFC=Q(P-AVC)-TFC
For ABC Plant profit is equal (20-10)*22000-100000=120000
For XYZ Plant it is equal (22-8)*16000-200000=24000

The elasticity of profit is equal (MR-MC) *Q/profit.
For ABC Plant it is equal (20-10)*22000/120000=11/6
For XYZ Plant it is equal (22-8)*16000/24000=28/3
