Re: Demand Question
unit demand can be expressed as a function of unit cost.
think of the $ and the number of units as x and y coordinates.
say that y is the price
and x is the demand
so find a linear y=f(x) equation that intercepts those two points and you will arrive at formula that will give you both answers.
