How well does the regression fit the data;b.) What;is the income elasticity of demand for pizza?;4.;1.A bond pays $1,000 at the end of each year;for 5 years plus an additional $5,000 when the bond matures at the end of 5;years. What is the most you would be willing to pay for this bond if your;opportunity cost of capital is 5%?;2. Suppose the own price elasticity of demand;for good X is -3, its income elasticity is 2, and the cross price elasticity of;demand between good X and Y is -5.;Determine how much the consumption of this good will change if;a) The price;of good X increases by 5%;b)The price of;good Y increases by 12%;by 12%;quantity demanded of good X decrease by 60%.;3. An;accountant for a car rental company was recently asked to report the firm?s;cost of producing various levels of output. The accountant knows that the;most recent estimate available of the firm?s cost function is C(Q) = 100 + 10Q;+ Q2, where costs are measured in thousands of hours rented;a)What is the average fixed cost of producing 2;units of output?;b)What is the average total cost of producing 2;units of output?;c)What is the marginal cost of producing 2;units of output?;6. Provide an intuitive explanation for why a;?buy one, get one free? deal is not the same as a ?half price? sale
