ASSESSMENT TASK 1PART 1: Practical Exercises: Economic PrinciplesPrice elasticityPrice ($)Quantity demandedElasticity coefficient111250A101350B91450C81550Da.) elasticity of coefficient using arc methodFrom the above table, according to point A to B price decreases from $11 to $10 andquantity demanded increases from 1250 to 1350. Using these formulas for percentage change inprice and quantity are as follows-= [1250-1350/1250+1350] / [11-10/11+10]= [-100/2600] / [1/21]= [-0.038]/ [0.047]= -0.81From the above table, according to point B to C price decreases from $10 to $9 andquantity demanded increases from 1350 to 1450. Using these formulas for percentage change inprice and quantity are as follows-== [1350-1450/1350+1450] / [10-9/10+9]=[-100/ 2800] / [1/19]1
=[-0.035] / [0.052]= -0.67From the above table, according to point C to D price decrease to $9 to $8 and quantitydemanded increases from 1450 to 1550. Using these formulas for percentage change in priceand quantity are as follows-== [1450-1550/ 1450+1550] / [9-8/9+8]= [-100/3000] / [1/17]= [-0.033] / [0.14]= -0.23b.) price elasticity of demand from point A to B, price elasticity of coefficient is (0.81) whichmeans that demand is elastic. Same in the case of point B to C, that is (0.67) and C to D that is(0.23). Demand curve of price elasticity is always negative, therefore according to question, itfollows the law of demand that is as price increases quantity demanded decreases.TASK 2Market Structure#Perfect competitionMonopolisticcompetitionoligopolymonopolynumbers ofbuyersIn these types ofmarket, there must belarge number ofbuyers.
