Question 2 (5 points)

Kevin and Sarah want to determine if their business is elastic or inelastic and by how much. They have done some research and determined demand at their current price and at a proposed new price. What is the coefficient of elasticity for their meal service based on these projections?
Current price = \$200 per week Proposed new price = \$250 per week
Current demand = 300 customers a week Demand at the new price = 240 customers a week
The formula for calculating elasticity is:
Ed = {(Q1-Q2) / [1/2 (Q1+Q2)] } / {(P1-P2) / [1/2 (P1 + P2)]}
Where:
Q1 = Old Quantity â€“ this is the current quantity Q2 = New Quantity â€“ this is the quantity that results from the future or proposed price change
P1 = Old Price â€“ this is usually the current price P2 = New Price â€“ this is the price that will change in the future or the price that is being proposed

Question 3 (5 points)

Kevinâ€s friend, Sam, runs a septic tank repair business. Your research shows that the following price and demand for servicing a tank:
Current Price: \$300 New Price: \$375
Current demand: 450 tanks New demand 425 tanks
What is the coefficient of elasticity for Samâ€s business?
Here is the formula for calculating elasticity:
Ed = {(Q1-Q2) / [1/2 (Q1+Q2)] } / {(P1-P2) / [1/2 (P1 + P2)]}

Question 5 (5 points)

Rob is considering investing in a new method of cleaning carpets that will cost him more both in fixed and variable costs, but will allow him to charge more. He wants to know what his total sales will be for both his current method and the new method at his breakeven point. You will need to calculate his BEv for both methods first and then determine his total sales for BOTH to give him the information he needs. Be sure you round UP to the nearest whole carpet.
Remember the current has these factors:
Price to clean a carpet = \$75 Materials (variable costs) = \$15 Monthly fixed costs = \$4000
The new method has these factors:
Fixed costs: \$4750 Variable costs per carpet: 18.50 Price per carpet: \$99
What are Robâ€s sales for the current method AND the new method, in that order?

Question 5 options:

1)

\$5010 and \$5841

2)

\$5025 and \$5950

3)

\$5025 and \$5841

\$5005 and \$5775

Kevin and Sarah are working on pricing for their gourmet dinner home delivery business. Even though they are targeting affluent families, they know that price is important to their potential customers. Kevin is a great cook but has little training in economics or accounting and knows nothing about elasticity. He looked up elasticity on Google and found the following. Which of them is not true?

Question 6 options:

1)

Elasticity measures the consumerâ€s response to changes in price

2)

Elasticity is calculated using the percent of change in demand (quantity) compared to the percent of change in price.

3)

If the coefficient of elasticity is greater than 1 then the product is inelastic

4)

All of these are accurate

5)

Only A and B are accurate

Question 8 (5 points)

Kevin and Sarah know exactly what their costs are to make and deliver the meals to each customer. They are considering using cost plus pricing since it is easy to determine profitability. What is wrong with them using this pricing strategy?

2)

Consumers are indifferent to their costs

3)

The cost of food, gas and labor are unpredictable

Question 9 (5 points)

Ally has promised Kat that she will get the same \$3 per dozen commission regardless of what price the cookies sell for. This makes Allyâ€s new costs look like this:
Initial investment: \$450 Fixed costs: \$375 Variable costs: \$3 (per dozen) Commission; \$3 (per dozen)
Ally is curious about what price she needs to charge to get a 60% Return on Investment (ROI) including her variable costs, initial investment and fixed costs. What price will she need to charge for a 60% ROI? For this calculation Ally is assuming sales of 900 dozen (900 units). Pay close attention to the investment and unit cost figures.
This was covered in Module 6 and the formula is:
FORMULA: ROI PRICE = UNIT COST + (ROI x INVESTMENT) / UNIT SALES
HINT: Make sure you include all of Allyâ€s expenses in the right category

Rob is expecting a busy holiday season and is trying to decide if he should buy the new equipment. He is projecting that he will clean 7 carpets a day and work 38 days during the holiday.
