The demand curve for haircuts at Terry’s Hair Design is P=20-0.20Q
Where Q is the number of cuts per week and P is the price of a haircut. Terry is considering raising her price above the current price of $15.00. Terry is unwilling to raise price if the price hike will cause revenues to fall.
a. Should Terry raise the price of haircuts above$15.00? Why or why not?
b. Suppose demand for Terry’s haircuts increases to P=40 – 0.40Q. At a price of 15, should Terry raise the price of her haircuts? Why or why not?
