Given the following example I need to find elasticity of t in respects to x. T=100x/20+x+49 I'm stuck on it and don't know where to go with it.

1) t=100x/(20+x)+49 2) and I don't understand this.

It is elasticity in regards to the chain rule of the question above. I think it t is suppose to be price and x is quantity, because we've only talked about elasticity of demand in class thus far.
here is a link to a question about your topic ... maybe you should have posted this in the Business math forum. http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...lasticity.html Moderator edit: The thread has been moved to that subforum.
