Econ Equations Slope – rise over run *gradient – slope of line between 2 points on graph y/ x ∆ ∆ *related to cost Elasticity – “Responsiveness” of Y with respect to X % change in Y (the “effect”) % change in X (the “cause”) = Y/Y = Y X *Slope of graph of Y vs. X X/X X Y % Change** “Simple Method” P= 11-10=1 % P=1/10=.1=10% Q=4-5=-1 % Q=-1/5=.2=20% *elasticity Q w.r.t. P = 20%/10% = 2 “Midpoint method” Change=new-old Level=Avg. of new and old values *(new + old)/2

% change=change/level *(new – old) / [(new + old)/2] X 100% ∆P=11-10=1 %∆P=1/ [(10 + 11)/2] = 1/10.5 = 9.52% ∆Q=4-5 = -1 %∆Q= -1/ [(4 + 5)/2] = 1/ 4.5 = 22.22% *elasticity Q w.r.t. P = 22.22 / 9.52 = 2.33 Cost 24 meat, or 48 potatoes, or combos in between “Cost” of 1 meat is 2 potatoes and “cost” of 1 potato is ½ meat Surplus “Total surplus” Value to buyers – cost to sellers *(consumer surplus + producer surplus)
