demand = (p+1)sqroot(q+1)=1000. Find elasticity of demand at a price of $39 per unit.
I am really struggling with this problem is there anyone that can help me?
i am not familiar with the terminology, but if you are trying to solve for p, it is not that hard
(p+1)√(p+1) = 1000
(p+1)^(3/2)=1000
raise both sides to the 2/3 power
to get
p+1=1000^(2/3)
.
.
p=
I am trying to solve for q not p.
sorry, I didn't mind my p's and q's, read them as p
(q+1)^(1/2)=1000/(p+1)
q+1 = [1000/(p+1)]^2
q = [1000/(p+1)]^2  1
thank you!

If a pricedemand equation is solved for p, then price is expressed as p = g(x) and x becomes the independent variable. In this case, it can be shown that the elasticity of demand is given by E(x) =  [g(x) / xg'(x)]. Use the given …
