File Name: relationship between total revenue and price elasticity of demand .zip
There is a very useful relationship between elasticity of demand, average revenue and marginal revenue at any level of output.
Income and price elasticity of demand quantify the responsiveness of markets to changes in income and in prices, respectively. Under the assumptions of utility maximization and preference independence additive preferences , mathematical relationships between income elasticity values and the uncompensated own and cross price elasticity of demand are here derived using the differential approach to demand analysis. Key parameters are: the elasticity of the marginal utility of income, and the average budget share. The proposed method can be used to forecast the direct and indirect impact of price changes and of financial instruments of policy using available estimates of the income elasticity of demand.

Video transcript So we're going back to our little burger stand where we had our demand curve in terms of burgers per hour.
And now, I want to think about something from the perspective of our burger stand. And think about, at any given point on this demand curve, how much revenue would we get per hour. And when I talk about revenue, for simplicity, let's just think that's really just how much total sales will I get in a given hour. So let me just write over here total revenue. Well, the total revenue is going to be how much I get per burger times the number of burgers I get.
So the amount that I get per burger is price. So it's going to be equal to price. And then the total number of burgers in that hour is going to be the quantity. Pretty straightforward. Now, let's think about what the total revenue will look like at different points along this curve right over here. And actually, let me just make a table right over here.
So I'll make one column price, one column quantity. And then let's make one column total revenue. So let's look at a couple scenarios here. Well, we could actually look at some of these points that we already have defined.
At point A over here, price is 9. So I'll do it in point A's color. Prices is 9. Quantity is 2. And you can see it visually right over here. This height right over here is 9. And this width right over here is 2. And your total revenue is going to be the area of this rectangle.
Because the height is the price. And the width is the quantity. So that total revenue is the area right over there. Now, let's go to point-- let me do a couple of them just to really make it clear for us. Let's try to point B. So at point B when our price is 8 and our quantity is 4, 4 per hour. And once again, you can see that visually. The height here is 8. And the width here-- so the height of this rectangle is 8.
And the width is 4. The total revenue is going to be the area. It's going to be the height times the width just like that. Now, let's go to a point that I haven't actually graphed here.
Actually, let me just-- actually, I'll go through all the points just for fun. So now at point C, we have 5. The quantity is 9. And you have another 4. So that is So once again, it's going to be the area of this rectangle. Area of that rectangle right over there. So you might already be noticing something interesting. As we lower the price, at least in this part of our demand curve, as we lower the price, we are actually increasing not just the quantity were increasing the total revenue.
Let's see if this keeps happening. So if we go to point D, I'll do it in that same color. We have 4. And we are selling 11 units. So 11 times 4. Let's see, this is going to be 44 plus 5. Once again, that is So that this rectangle is going to have the same area as that pink one that we just did for scenario C.
And I'll actually just do one more down here, just to see what happens. Because this is interesting. Now we lower the price.
And it looks like things didn't change much. And now, let's go-- let's just do one more point actually for the sake of time. Point E. And I encourage you to try other ones. Try F on your own. My quantity is 16 burgers per hour. I sell a total of 32 burgers. Now actually, let's just do the last one, F, just to feel a sense of completion.
I sell 18 burgers per hour. And once again, that's the area of this rectangle, this short and fat rectangle right over here. And E was the area-- the total revenue in E was the area of that right over there.
And you could graph these just to get a sense of how total revenue actually changes with respect to price or quantity. Lets plot the total revenue with respect to quantity. So let's try it out. So if you-- let me plot it out. So this is going to be total revenue. And this axis right over here is going to be quantity. And we're going to, once again, go from-- let's see. This is 0. This is 5.
This is And this is 20 right over here. And then total revenue. Let's see, it gets as high-- it gets pretty close to So let's go. This is 10 20, 30, 40, and So that's 50, 40, 30, 20, and

It's human nature. If the price of a product goes up, consumers buy less of it. If the price goes down, consumers buy more. In economic terms, that's called price elasticity.

Marshall works out a relationship between price elasticity of demand and total expenditure.Reply
The price elasticity of demand measures the sensitivity of the quantity demanded of a good to a when the price elasticity lies between -1 and 0. – i.e. when the When price is changed, the impact on a firm's total revenue. (TR) will depend.Reply
