Question #75855

Given the demand function

Qd=650-5p-p2(p square) where p= 10

Determine the price elasticity of demand.

Qd=650-5p-p2(p square) where p= 10

Determine the price elasticity of demand.

Expert's answer

e = (P/Q)*(dQ/dP) at p=10

dQ/dP(p=10) = -5 - 2p = -25

e = -10*25/650 = -0.38

So, this is relatively inelastic demand

dQ/dP(p=10) = -5 - 2p = -25

e = -10*25/650 = -0.38

So, this is relatively inelastic demand
