Consider the following demand and supply functions for corn:
Demand is given by Supply is given by At the equilibrium price, what are the elasticities of demand (Ed ) and supply (Es)? (Note: In your calculations,
round quantities to 1 decimal place and price to the nearest penny.) Instructions: Round your answers to 2 decimal places. Include any negative signs if necessary.
