Unformatted text preview: d function considered in this question: Also, the equilibrium price is P = 60/(1 + 3), and the corresponding equilibrium quantity is Qd = 60(3)/(1 + 3). Therefore, at the equilibrium price P / Qd = 60/(1 + 3) / 60(3)/(1 + 3) = 1/3 Substituting the values in the price elasticity formula, note that for this demand and supply, the elasticity equals ­ 1 (60/(1 + 3) / 60(3)/(1 + 3)) = −1/3 = ­0.333333333. http://e z to.mhe c loud.mc gr a w- hill.c om/hm.tpx? todo= pr intvie w 2/8 1/22/2014 2.
