Consider two demand functions:a) Q(p) = 50 – 10pb) Q(p) = 2/p.For each demand function, derive the elasticity of demand εD, and describe how |εD | changes (if it changes) as you move down the demand curve (i.e., as Q increases).

Question

Consider two demand functions:

a) Q(p) = 50 – 10p
b) Q(p) = 2/p.

For each demand function, derive the elasticity of demand εD, and describe how |εD | changes (if it changes) as you move down the demand curve (i.e., as Q increases).
