How many T-shirts could NEXT sell at \$4.50 each?

Q = 1,500 – 200*4.50=1,500-900=600

What price would NEXT have to charge to sell 900 T-shirts?

Q = 1,500 – 200P=900 when P=(1,500-900)/200=\$3

At what price would T-shirt sales equal zero?

Q = 1,500 – 200P=0 when P=1,500/200=\$7.50

D. Calculate the point price elasticity of demand at a price of \$5?

The point price elasticity of demand is calculated as

K_d=dQ/dP×Р/Q
So,
K_d=(1,500-200P)^'×P/Q(P) =-200×5/(1,500-200×5)=(-1000)/500=-2
