Cross-Price Elasticity of Demand (Exy) Exy = % change in Qdx/% change in Py *Substitutes and complements Income Elasticity of Demand (Ei) Ei = % change in Qd/% change in income *Normal and inferior goods Price Elasticity of Supply E = % change in Qs/% change in P Price Elasticity of Demand = % change in Qd/% change in P Since demand is downward sloping, elasticity of demand is negative (absolute value given is a positive number) Elasticity tells us the % change in Qd for each 1% change in price Ed gasoline = 0.2 For a 1% increase in price of gasoline, Qd of gasoline decreases by 0.2%

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
