The table shows the relationship for a hypothetical firm between its advertising expenditures and the quantity of its out-put that it expects it can sell at a fixed price of $5 per unit.
Advertising Quantity Sold at P = $5/IN
Expenditures (millions) Million Units
$1 8
$1.2 9
$1.4 9.4
$1.6 9.6
$1.8 9.7
