A. i. Price elasticity of demand= 1
ii. Price elasticity of demand= .474
B. i. Income elasticity of demand= 1.269
Ii. Income elasticity of demand= 2.2
A. Price elasticity of demand is estimated to be= .237
B. Revenue will increase as subways transit is a relatively inelastic good.
C. Not enough time has passed since the institution of the price change for the market to
An unambiguous decrease in the demand of good X would occur as since cross-price

B. 5 years from now as the market will have more time to adjust to the stimulus

You should increase the price of admission if a museum's attendance is relatively

in price will draw in a much larger amount of consumers and thus be the correct course of
