# the price elasticity of demand of good X is double the price elasticity of demand of good Y.a 10℅ rise no the price of good Y results in fall in it's demand by 60 units. if original demand of commodity Y was 400,calculate percentage rise in quantity demanded of good X when its price falls from Rs 10to Rs8 per unit

Ed of X = 2Ed of Y

% change in price of Y = 10

📐Q of Y= (-60)

Q of Y = 400 Q1 of Y = 340

P of X = 10 P1 of X = 8

and we need to find

% change in demand of X = ?

now from the given information we can calculate

📐P of X = P1 of X - P of X

= 8 -10

= ( -2 )

% change in demand of Y

= 📐Q of Y/Q of Y * 100

= (-60 )/400 * 100

= (-15)

now as we know % change in price and demand of Y we can calculate it's Ed

Ed of Y = % change in demand of Y / % change in price of Y

= (-15)/10

= (-1.5)

now in the question we had the information that

Ed of X = 2Ed of Y

Ed of X = 2*(-1.5)

= (-3)

now % change in price of X

= 📐P of X/ P of X * 100

= ( - 2)/10 * 100

= (-20)

Ed of X = % change in demand of X/ % change in price of X

(-3) = % change in demand of X / (-20)

NOW FINALLY

% change in demand of X = 60 %
