Using Excel, prepare a graph showing the breakeven point and any profit or loss at the current price of \$7.

Explain to the Golden Star management the implications of this analysis. •

What is the elasticity coefficient for each price between \$6.50 and \$7.50? Is the demand elastic or inelastic at these points? How can this information be useful to management in its pricing and output decisions? • On the basis of your calculations and the information above, what recommendations would you make to Golden Star in terms of price and output levels?
