## angela210793 3 years ago suppose that demand's elasticity for cars in USA=2.5 and in UK=3 If in the next year the incomes of USA grow with 2% and in UK with 1% wht will be the effect in Qd in both countries?

1. sheg

See as the income level of both the countries is increasing then people will have more money to spend that is their desire will get converted into demand ( with extra amount to spend). Thus, such people who do not possess car will purchase car and those who already possess car will try to buy cars which will be better than the car they possess.

my teacher did smth like |dw:1322932310482:dw| i didn't get...do these show the increase of Qd of USA and UK?

3. sheg

and income elasticity of demand

4. sheg

see this equation is for income elasticity of demand..........i was telling it u in words......... If the demand decreases for cars it means that it is inferior good...........and if it demand increases it means that it is a superior good

5. sheg

$Income Elasticity of Demand = \frac{percent chage i n quantity demanded}{percent change i n income level}$

6. sheg

from this u can find out the quantity demanded

7. sheg

i was actually trying to explain the relation between income and demand

8. angela210793

Oh..............I think I got it.....Thanks ^_^

9. sheg

so they are directly proportional to each other as the income increases the demand of inferior goods goes down and as income increases the demand of superior goods increases
