Exp.The arc elasticity of demand can be calculated as:
Arc Elasticity = [(Qd2 – Qd1) / midpoint Qd] ÷ [(P2 – P1) / midpoint P]
Midpoint Qd = (Qd1 + Qd2)/2 = (4000 + 5000)/2 = 4500
Midpoint Price = (P1 + P2)/2 = (75 + 90)/2 = 82.5
% change in quantity demanded = (5000 – 4000)/4500 = 0.23
% change in price = (90-75)/82.5 = 0.18
Arc Elasticity of demand = 0.23/0.18 = 1.28.
