Question: the following graph represents the market demand for paper towelandnbsp...

Question details

The following graph represents the market demand for paper towel.  Circle one

a) Using the midpoint method, the elasticity of demand between points A and B is equal to

i)1.00

ii) 1.33

iii) 2.50

iv) 6.00

Demand is (elastic, inelastic, unit elastic) between points A and B. This is consistent with the fact that total expenditure (or total revenue) in the paper towel market (increases, decreases, stays the same) as we move from point A to B.

 

(b) Using the midpoint method, the elasticity of demand between points B and C is

i) 0.4

ii) 0.75

iii) 1.00

iv) 1.33

Demand is (elastic, inelastic, unit elastic) between points B and C. This is consistent with the fact that total expenditure (or total revenue) in the paper towel market (increases, decreases, stays the same) as we move from point B to C.
