Skateoards sell for \$70. During the past year they sold 4,000 skateboards. The company beleives that the price elasticity for product is -2.5. If it decreases the price to \$63, what would be the quantity sold?

• Managerial Economics -

dQ/dP=-2.5

where dQ= percent quantity demand
dP= percent price change

dQ=dP*-2.5= -7/70 * -2.5= 25

Q= 4000(1.25)=5000

check my thinking
