**4.1. Own-Price Elasticity of Demand**

e know that when price is 5, quantity demanded is 9,200, and when price is 6, quantity demanded is 8,800, but we do not know anything more about the demand function. Under these circumstances, economists use something called arc elasticity . <span>Arc elasticity of demand is still defined as the percentage change in quantity demanded divided by the percentage change in price.
