Just like with price elasticity of demand, we will compute the price elasticity of supply using the midpoint formula.

An individual used to raise 10 bags which sell on the market at a minimum of $8 each. For some reasons, the market price per bag reached $10. He decided to raise 20. Let us find out how elastic or responsive the production was to price.
