Price elasticity = (change in quantity demanded ÷change in price )×(initial price÷ initial demand) (5÷2)×(6÷10) that's (2.5×0.6) gives 1.5

Price elasticity= change in quanty demanded/change in price × initial price/ initial demand =5(15-10)/ 2(6-4) × 6/10 = 3/2 =1.5

Price elasticity = (change in quantity demanded ÷change in price )×(initial price÷ initial demand) (5÷2)×(6÷10) that's (2.5×0.6) gives 1.5
