Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do not understand the question. Are you stating that 100 units of an item cost $60 and 100,000 units of the same items cost $40?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2looks like a demand function which has an inverse relationship y = k/x + c 60 = k/100 + c and 40 = k/100,000 +c solve for k and c k = 2002 c = 39.98 y = 2002/x + 39.98
