- 1. Price elasticity of supply
- 2. Price elasticity of supplyThe market for tractors is supplied by two firms, X andY, each initially having 50 % of the market.A 10 % increase in the price of tractors leads to an increasein output from firm X of 10 % and from firm Y of 20 %. Whatis the price elasticity of supply of tractors in this market?
- 3. Price elasticity of supplyThe market for tractors is supplied by two firms, X andY, each initially having 50 % of the market.A 10 % increase in the price of tractors leads to an increasein output from firm X of 10 % and from firm Y of 20 %. Whatis the price elasticity of supply of tractors in this market?Price change = 10%, total output change is 15%Therefore the price elasticity of supply = +1.5
