Do you know how to do 1c? you need the Price elasticity of demand formula. You've probably done it correctly if you know the formula.

What did you get for the PED between the price points £400 and £360: PED = %change in quantity / %change in price

Just remember that this is a data question. so for number 2, quote some of the relevant bit (at the bottom) and link it in with how demand is more elastic at lower quantities (when price is high). If you don't understand why, look at the percentages in the formula. Similarly, (but separate to the point about price in brackets) when price is high the %change in price is lower, and so PED is higher.

Also, revenue is higher at the unit elastic points. Think about how you can include that in your answer for a bonus.
