Question

Price elasticity of supply of a good is 2. A producer supplies 100 units of a good at a price of Rs 20 per unit. At what price will he supply 80 units?

Solution

Given

Es=2

Actual Quantity (Q0)=100

Actual Price (P0)= Rs 20

New in Quantity (Q1)= 80

Change in Quantity Supplied (ΔQ)=Q1-Q0=80-100 = - 20

New in Price (P1) = ??

`E_s=(+)(DeltaQ)/(DeltaP)xxP_0/(Q_0)`

`2=(+)(-20)/(DeltaP)xx20/100`

ΔP=-2

We know that

ΔP=P1-P0

So -2=P1-20

∴P1=18

Hence, new price is Rs 18. The seller will supply 80 units at Rs 18 per unit

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
