# In Problems 1 -8, p is in dollars and q is the number of units.Suppose that the demand for a product is given by   p q   +   p   = 5000. (a) Find the elasticity when p = $50 and q = 99.(b) Tell what type of elasticity this is: unitary, elastic, or inelastic.(c) How would revenue be affected by a price increase? (a) To determine To calculate: The elasticity of demand function pq+p=5000 at p=$50 and q=99.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is pq+p=5000 when p=\$50 and q=99.

Formula Used:

As per the product rule, if two functions are given in the form f(x).g(x), then the derivative is given as:

ddx(f.g)=f.dgdx+g.dfdx

If p=f(q) is the demand for the q units and price p, then at the points (qA,pA), then,

Elasticity of demand= η=pq.dqdp

Calculation:

The provided function is pq+p=5000,

Partially differentiate on both the sides with respect to p,

q

(b)

To determine

The type of elasticity this is: unitary, elastic or inelastic.

(c)

To determine

How will a price increase affect the total revenue.
