Assume that amazon.com dropped the price on a men's Seiko watch from $120 to $60, and sales jumped from 50 to 100 units per day. Using Arc Price Elasticity formula, calculate the implied arc price elasticity of demand. Is a further price decrease warranted?

A) No, further decrease in price would reduce total revenue because EP = -1, which means that $60 is the revenue-maximizing price.
B) Yes, further decrease in price would reduce total revenue because EP < -1, which means that $60 is higher than the revenue-maximizing price.
C) Yes, further decrease in price would reduce total revenue because EP > -1, which means that $60 higher than the revenue-maximizing price.

11.

Deluxe Carpeting, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of stain-resistant carpeting. Demand for Deluxe products is tied to the overall pace of building and remodeling activity and, therefore, is sensitive to changes in national income. The carpet manufacturing industry is highly competitive, so Deluxe demand is also very price-sensitive.During the past year, Deluxe sold 28 million square feet of carpeting at an average wholesale price of $16 per square foot. This year, GDP per capita is expected to fall from $57,000 to $51,000 as the nation enters a steep recession. Without any price change, Deluxe expects current-year sales to fall to 20 million units.Calculate the implied arc income elasticity of demand.

A) 1
B) 2
C) 2.5
D) 3
E) 4

12.

A) decrease.
B) increase.
C) remain constant.
D) either increase or remain constant depending upon the size of the price increase.
E) disappear.

13.

A goodness of fit measure for a multiple regression model is provided by the:

A) coefficient of determination.
B) standard error of the estimate.
C) correlation coefficient.
D) F statistic.
E) t statistic.

Lacy's Department Store has conducted a survey to learn the buying intentions of a sample of 62 customers. The survey asked each customer their household gross income(in $ thousands), and their number of shopping trips per year.The coefficient of correlation between the TRIPS and INCOME variables of 0.8 means that

A) there is a strong direct relation between the TRIPS and INCOME variables.
B) there is a strong inverse relation between the TRIPS and INCOME variables.
C) the researcher found no relation between the TRIPS and INCOME variables.
D) the sample size is too small to draw any conclusions.

15.

Refer to the question above. Suppose researchers obtain the following results for a simple regression over this sample where TRIPS is the dependent Y variable and INCOME is the independent X-variable.

The regression equation is: TRIPs = 0.5 + 0.1 INCOME

Which of the following statements is FALSE?

B) a one-unit (thousand dollar) increase in INCOME results in an average increase of 0.1 units in the TRIPS variable.
C) 64% of the variation in the number of planned trips can be explained using just the INCOME independent variable.
D) In this example, the intercept is an accurate predictor of the number of planned trips for a department customer with zero income.
E) F statistic of 106.7 means that this level of explained variation is statistically significant at more than the 99% confidence level.
