Economics 301 – Fall 2007 – PRELIM 2 - J. Wissink – Tuesday November 6 Directions: ANSWER ALL THE QUESTIONS. Write legibly, concisely, and coherently. Be sure to label all axes, functions, and variables you use. READ QUESTIONS CAREFULLY. Draw pictures whenever possible. Show all your work! Total time for the test is 75 minutes. Total points on test = 100. 1. (16pts)Suppose the daily demand function for ski-boat rides at the Ezra Cornell Family Resort on Cayuga Lake is given by the following equation: X D = 50 - 2P X + 4I - 3P Z + P Y, where X D = number of ski-boat rides in a day; P X = price per ride for ski-boat rides and I = income for the day. There are two other variables that enter into this demand function: the price of wet suits (required for the cold waters of Cayuga Lake) and the price of a scenic dinner cruise on the lake. a. Would P Z most likely be the price of wet suits or the price of a scenic dinner cruise? Why do you think so? b. If P X = \$20 and I = \$50 and P Z = \$15 and P Y = \$40, how many ski-boat rides are demanded per day? c. If I =\$50 and P Z = \$15 and P Y = \$40, what is the own price elasticity of demand at exactly P X =20? Is demand price elastic or price inelastic? d. If I =\$50 and P Y = \$40 and P X = \$20, what is the cross price elasticity of demand at exactly P Z =15?

### 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.
