Q1)The market for photocopiers is perfectly comp. A technological
breakthrough lowers the cost of photocopiers. If the demand for photocopiers
is inelastic, sales will:
Answer:c, quantity (output) rises and total revenue falls diagram #1, March

Note: Demand Curves
1.Change in quantity demanded vs change in demand
2.Substitutes vs. Complements
3.Normal vs inferior goods ( as income goes down, you use less)
Q2) a perfect comp industry is in short run equilib. Industry price and output
will increase under which one of the following conditions:
Incidence of a sales tax
(who ultimately pays tax, the buyer or the seller?)
Assume tax to be paid by seller
(remember: incidence does not depend on whether paid by seller or by buyer)
Q3) a tax has been levied on a product. The more price-elastic the demand for
that product is:
Insight: use perfectly inelastic and perfectly elastic demand curves to analyze
problem.
