Natalie Rastello S473328 AP Microeconomics Assignment: Apply Concepts of Demand and Shifts of Demand Curves 1. The law of demand relates two variables: price and quantity demanded. A. What is the relationship between these variables? There is an inverse relationship between price and demand. B. What does quantity demanded mean? Quantity demanded means the amount of a good or service people want to buy at a given price. C. How does the concept of ceteris paribus apply to the law of demand? The Law of Demand refers to when there is a decline in the price of a good, holding everything else constant (ceteris paribus), leads to an increase in the quantity demanded. Ceteris paribus indicates that you must hold all variables constant in order to achieve accurate results with the law of demand. D. Draw a hypothetical demand curve. Completely label your graph. E.

    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.
