Step 1

Cross price elasticity of demand: It refers to the degree of responsiveness of demand for one good with respect to a change in the price of its related goods. The related goods are of two types of Substitute goods and Complementary goods.

Substitute goods have competent demand. When the price of one good increase it leads to an increase in demand for its substitute goods. The value of cross-price elasticity for Substitutes goods is positive.

Complementary goods have joint demand they are always demanded together by the consumer like tea powder and sugar for making tea. When price of one good decrease it led to increase in demand for its complement good. The value of cross-price elasticity for complementary goods is negative.

Step 2

The formula for calculating cross-price elasticity is shown above:

Step 3

A 20% increase in the price of product A cause a 10% decrease in its quantity demanded and no change in demand fo...
