#### Question

When price of a commodity falls by Rs 1 per unit, its quantity demanded rises by 3 units. Its price elasticity of demand is (−) 2. Calculate its quantity demanded if the price before the change was Rs 10 per unit.

#### Solution

Initial Price (P)=Rs 10

Initial Qunatity (q)=x

`ΔP=-1`

`Δq=3`

`E_d=(-)2`

`E_d= (Δq)/(Δp)xxp/q`

`Or,-2=3/-1xx10/x`

Or,x=15 `"units(Initial Quantity Demanded)"`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
