Analysis of Demand Curve

You are hired as a consultant to a president of a liberal
arts college in the East You are asked to evaluate a recommendation by the
college’s Admissions Director, Susan Hansen, to increase tuition and to reduce
financial aid to students Susan argues that the data from competing colleges
suggest that the demand curves for colleges slope upward–the quantity demanded
increases with price Susan projects the increase in tuition and reduction in
financial aid will solve the school’s financial problems Last year, the
college enrolled 400 new students who each paid an effective tuition of $15,000
(after financial aid), totaling $6,000,000 She projects with the increased demand
from charging an effective tuition of $25,000, the college will be able to
enroll 600 new students (of equal or better quality), totaling $15,000,000
Evaluate Susan’s analysis and recommendation Include the equation in your
analysis and find the school’s elasticity coefficient
