QUESTION: 1

### If demand curve for trekking boots is D = 67500 - 18P and supply curve is S = 22500 + 12P, find the equilibrium Price?

Solution:

At Equilibrium, Demand=Supply Thus, 67500-18P=22500+12P P=45000/30 Equilibrium Price P =1500.

QUESTION: 3

### A hand made paper workshop can hire 8 craftsmen by paying them Rs 400 per person per day. The 9th craftsman demands Rs 450 per day. If this craftsman is hired then all other craftsmen must be paid Rs 450. The marginal resource (labour) cost of the 9th craftsman is -

Solution:

Marginal cost is the change in the opportunity cost that arises when the quantity produced is incremented by one unit, that is, it is the cost of producing one more unit of a good.
Total amount paid to 8 craftsman before demand of 9th craftsman = 8 ×400
=3200
Total amount paid to 9 craftsman after demand of 9th craftsman =9×450
=4050
Marginal cost=4050-3200
=850

QUESTION: 10

If quantity of good X demanded increases from 4000 units to 5000 units when price of good Y increases from Rs 75 to Rs 90, find Arc Cross elasticity of demand?

Solution:

The arc elasticity of demand can be calculated as:
Arc Elasticity = [(Qd2 – Qd1) / midpoint Qd] ÷ [(P2 – P1) / midpoint P]
Midpoint Qd = (Qd1 + Qd2)/2 = (4000 + 5000)/2 = 4500
Midpoint Price = (P1 + P2)/2 = (75 + 90)/2 = 82.5
% change in quantity demanded = (5000 – 4000)/4500 = 0.23
% change in price = (90-75)/82.5 = 0.18
Arc Elasticity of demand = 0.23/0.18 = 1.28.
