The company is considering lowering the price of Model A to $27 in an effort to increase the number of units sold. Based on the results of price changes that have been instituted in the past, Tennis Products’ chief economist has estimated the arc price elasticity of demand to be -2.5. Furthermore, she has estimated the arc cross elasticity of demand between Model A and Model B to be approximately 0.5 and between Model A and Model C to be approximately 0.2. Variable costs per unit are not expected to change over the anticipated changes in volume.
