price elasticity of demand equation

percent change in quantity/ percent change in price

percent change in quantity

(quantity2-quantity1)/2

for price elasticity of demand, if e > 1, then demand is (elastic/inelastic)?

demand elastic

for price elasticity of demand, if e < 1, then demand is (elastic/inelastic)

demand inelastic

meet point method

percent change in quantity/percent change in price

quantity: (q2-q1)/((q1+q2)/2)

more substitutes, then more elastic/inelastic?

elastic

P goes up, Total Revenue goes up

inelastic

p goes up, total revenue goes down

elastic

income elasticity

percent change in q/percent change in income

if negative = inferior

if positive = normal

under normal, if bigger than 1, luxury, if smaller than 1, necessity

cross price elasticity

percent change in q of x / percent change in price of y

if postive, substitutes, if negative, complements

which one has more tax burden? elastic or inelastic?

inelastic

price ceiling

shortage

price floor

surplus

producer surplus

total revenue - total cost

if mv>mc, then...

produce mo' shit!

total surplus

value to buyers - cost to sellers

or

consumer surplus + producer surplus + government revenue

revenue from tax

t * q

if demand inelastic, DWL will be

SMALLER

if demand elastic, DWL will be

BIG

A-B, elasticity and p to tr direction?

elastic and opposite, p down, tr up

B-C, elasticity and p to tr direction?

inelastic and same, p down, tr down
