MBAA 523 Problem Set 3 If the price for some good increases by 10% Answer

MBAA 523 Problem Set 3

1. If the price for some good increases by 10% and the quantity demanded falls by 5%

(a) what is the price elasticity of demand,

(b) is this elastic or inelastic?

2. Last year the US low-cost-carrier Spirit Airlines entered the Dallas-Chicago market.

The average ticket price for all airlines servicing the route fell from $200 to $180. After

Spirits entry, the number of passengers increased from 700 to 800 per day (these

number are hypothetical, but reasonable). Calculate the price elasticity of demand

between these two points. Show the computation.

3. An airline consulting firm as determined that the income elasticity for leisure air

travel in China is 1.5. If incomes increase by 5% next year, what is the percentage

change in leisure passengers expected next year? Show the computation.

4. The state operates a toll road which currently charges $1.00 per car with 100,000 cars

using the road daily. The state wishes to raise an additional $10,000 per day for road

maintenance. A newly hired financial analyst proposes raising the toll to $1.10 per car.

The analyst reports to you. Will you accept and forward her recommendation to your

boss?

5. The demand curve for a product is given by Qdx = 1,000 2Px +.02Pz where Pz =

$400. (Hint: If youre not comfortable with the calculus alternatives, compute Q at the

given prices, then again with a 1% increase in price. Then figure percentage change in

Q over the percentage change in P, %Q/%P).

a. What is the own price elasticity of demand when Px = $154? Is the demand elastic or

inelastic? What would happen to the firms revenue if it decided to charge a price below

$154?

b. What is the own price elasticity of demand when Px = $354? Is the demand elastic or

inelastic? What would happen to the firms revenue if it decided to charge a price below

$354?

c. What is the cross-price elasticity of demand between good X and good Z when Px =

$154? Are good X and good Z substitutes are complements?

6. The data are real US Gross Domestic Product (in billions of dollars) and Domestic

Revenue Passenger Miles (in millions) for the years 1996 through 2012. Below this table

is the MS Excel Summary Output regressing RPMs against GDP. Using MS Excel or

another similar application, build a scatter plot and insert the regression line and

equation. Next, interpret the regression output and explain the regression statistics. Be

certain that the regression coefficients match those in the scatter plot equation. Finally,

use the regression equation to predict RPMs for 2013 and 2014 assuming GDP grows by

3% each year from 2012. You may wish to check the actual RPMs to see how closely

your estimate matched. Note: To build a scatter plot in Excel, select and copy the GDP

and RPM data into Excel; select the data in Excel, then use Insert/Scatter to create a

scatter plot. Finally, scroll down Chart Layout to select the format that creates a

regression line and formula. Use the Excel Help function as needed.
