For what value of P is the demand unitary?

**drwls**, Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at 12:02am"Unitary demand" occurs where p*x = constant, which also implies that

dp/p = -dx/x,

which is another way of saying

dx/dp = -x/p

In your case

dx/dp = -5000*(1/2)/(5-p)^1/2

= -2500/(5-p)^1/2

= -x/p = -5000*(5-p)^1/2*(1/p)

1 = 2*(5-p)/p

p = 10 - 2p

p = $3.33
