Question

Question;q1question and Exercise 6-1;Determine the price elasticity of demand if, in response to an increase;in price of 10 percent, quantity demanded decreases by 20 percent.Instructions: Round your;answer to 2 decimal places..;Is demand elastic or inelastic: Explanation;E = Percentage change in quantity/Percentage change in price = 20/10;= 2.00. It is elastic;2uestion and Exercise 6-1 (algo);Determine the price elasticity of demand if, in response to an increase;in price of 15 percent, quantity demanded decreases by 10 percent.Instructions: Round your;answer to 2 decimal places..;Is demand elastic or inelasticExplanation;E = Percentage change in quantity/Percentage change in price = 10/15;= 0.67.

Until that year, the Redskins weren?t scoring many;touchdowns. Much to the surprise of Domino?s, in one week in 1999, the Redskins;scored six touchdowns. (Maybe they like pizza.) Domino?s pizzas were selling;for $2 a pie! The quantity of pizzas demanded soared the following week from 1;pie an hour to 100 pies an hour. What was price elasticity of demand for;Domino?s pizza?Instructions: Round your;answer to 2 decimal places.;Question and Exercise 6-4 (algo);One football season Domino?s Pizza, a corporate sponsor of the;Washington Redskins (a football team), offered to reduce the price of its $8;medium-size pizza by $1 for every touchdown scored by the Redskins during the;previous week.

(Binge drinking is;consuming 5 or more drinks at one occasion.)Instructions: Round your;answers to 2 decimal places.;a. The elasticity for underage drinking is.;The elasticity for binge drinking is.;b. What might explain the difference in elasticities?;Question and Exercise 6-10;A newspaper recently lowered its price from 50 cents to 30 cents. As it;did, the number of newspapers sold increased from 240,000 to 280,000.;a. What was the newspaper?s elasticity of demand?Instructions: Round your;answer to 2 decimal places.;b. Given that elasticity, did it make sense for the newspaper to lower its;price?.;c. What would your answer be if much of the firm?s revenue came from;advertising and the higher the circulation, the more it could charge for;advertising?;uestion and Exercise 6-10 (algo);A newspaper recently lowered its price from 60 cents to 55 cents.
