% change in demand / % change in price

The change in demand is (4000-5000)/(5000) = -20%

The change in price is (500-400)/400 = 25%

The elasticity between \$400 and \$500 therefore is -20/25 = -0.8

The concept is elasticity reflects the degree to which the demand for a good is affected by the price of a good. To calculate elasticity, you need a change in price and a change in demand. When the price changes, elasticity tells us how much demand for that good is expected to change. In this case, every additional dollar is price will result… [END OF PREVIEW]
