Economics 302 Silve Parviainen Intermediate Microeconomics Spring 2006 Midterm Examination I This is a 80-minute exam, with closed books and notes. No calculators allowed. There are four questions in the exam. Each question is worth 25 points. Remember to label your graphs carefully, and show your work. GOOD LUCK! 1 Demand and Elasticity Assume that the demand function for green peas can be expressed as Q d g = 100 - 10 p g - 10 p c + 5 p b , where p g is the price of green beans, p c the price of carrots, and p b the price of broccoli. The supply function of green beans is Q s g = 40 p g - 20 . At the equilibrium, the prices for carrots and broccoli are p c = p b = 2. (a) Calculate the equilibrium quantity and price for green beans. (b) At the equilibrium, is demand for beans elastic or inelastic? Brieﬂy explain how the elasticity shows in consumer behavior. (c) Calculate the cross-price elasticities, and determine if green beans and carrots are demand substitutes or complements. What about green beans and broccoli?

### What students are saying

• 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.
