ECO- Imagine that you work for the maker of a leading brand of low-calorie




Question;Imagine that you work for the maker of a leading brand of low-calorie, frozen microwavable food that estimates the following demand equation for its product using data from 26 supermarkets around the country for the month of April.Option 1Note: The following is a regression equation. Standard errors are in parentheses for the demand for widgets.QD = - 5200 - 42P + 20PX + 5.2I +.20A +.25M(2.002) (17.5) (6.2) (2.5) (0.09) (0.21)R2 = 0.55 n = 26 F = 4.88Your supervisor has asked you to compute the elasticities for each independent variable. Assume the following values for the independent variables:Q = Quantity demanded of 3-pack unitsP (in cents) = Price of the product = 500 cents per 3-pack unitPX (in cents) = Price of leading competitor?s product = 600 cents per 3-pack unitI (in dollars) = Per capita income of the standard metropolitan statistical area(SMSA) in which the supermarkets are located = $5,500A (in dollars) = Monthly advertising expenditures = $10,000M = Number of microwave ovens sold in the SMSA in which thesupermarkets are located = 5,000Please help me calculate the elasticities and show me the equations that brought you to the answer.
