is constant: changes from one point to another.
question

question
How is the price elasticity of demand is measured?
by dividing the percentage change in the quantity demanded of a product by the percentage change in the product's price.
question

question
How do economists avoid confusion over units in the computation of elasticity?
By using percentage changers rather than simple differences.
question
Which of the following statements about the slope and the price elasticity of demand is correct?
