Solution

 

Given that

Percentage change in quanity supplied is 50

P=Rs12 and P1 = Rs 15

ΔP = P1-P

=15-12

=3

Percentage change in price =`(DeltaP)/Pxx100`

`=3/12xx100=25%`

Price elasticity of supply`(E_s)="percentage change in quantity supplied"/"Percentage change in price"`

`=(50%)/(25%)= 2`
