# Danny “Dimes” Donahue is a neighborhood’s 9-year-old entrepreneur. His most recent ventu

Danny “Dimes” Donahue is a neighborhood’s 9-year-old entrepreneur.  His most recent venture is selling homemade brownies that he bakes himself. At a price of \$1.50 each, he sells 100. At a price of \$1.00 each, he sells 300. Is demand elastic or inelastic over this price range? If demand had the same elasticity for a price decline from \$1.00 to \$0.50 as it does for the decline from \$1.50 to \$1.00, would cutting the price from \$1.00 to \$0.50 increase or decrease Danny’s total revenue?

. Suppose that the total revenue received by a company selling basketballs is \$600 when the price is set at \$30 per basketball and \$600 when the price is set at \$20 per basketball.  Without using the midpoint formula, can you tell whether demand is elastic, inelastic, or unit-elastic over this price range?
