Question details

4. (15 points) You are a marketing advisor, and the firm youre advising has an advertising budget which is 10% of revenues. After some research, youve found that the advertising elasticity of revenues is .3, and that the incremental effect of advertising, while positive, declines with higher levels of advertising.

Explain the reasoning for your recommendation, using a formula.
