B) inelastic.
C) unitary elastic.
D) perfectly elastic.
Question #7

A) 36.
B) 4.
C) 18.
D) 24.
E) None of the above – more information is needed.

6) Unitary elastic.
% change in price = ($2.001.50)/2.00 = 25%
% change in qty demand = (500400)/400 = 25%
elasticity = % qty / % price = 1
When elasticity is exactly 1, this is referred to as unit elasticity.

7)
P = 1000  2Q
One good visual method to figure out the quantities which will let us find the optimal quantity using the midpoint is to test each proposed quantity,
Given Formula = Qty Sold Revenue(PxQ) Profit
$1000: 1000 = 1000  2Q. Q = 0 R = 0 Pr = 0  0 = $0
$700: 700 = 1000  2Q. Q = 150 R = 105000 Pr = 105000  150(400) = $40500
$450: 450 = 1000  2Q. Q = 275 R = 123750 Pr = 123750  275(400) = $13750
$400: 400 = 1000  2Q. Q = 300 R = 120000 Pr = 120000  300(400) = $0
$300: 300 = 1000  2Q. Q = 350 R = 105000 Pr = 105000  350(400) = $35000
Midpoint = (1000 + 400)/2 = $700 (ignore hypothetical $300 pricepoint because it results in a loss). We want the midpoint between the two zero profit points, which come from a price of $1000 and a price of $400.
We can confirm this method yields the highest profit in the table to the far right, where total profit for the $700 pricepoint is $40500, by far the highest of the multiple choice answers.
