= 0.5I think, price elasticity is percentage change in demand/price and income is the percentage change in demand/income I think from last years memories..
another tip is just to remember that if income increases and demand for a good, it's a normal good so will be positives

Income elasticity of demand = % change in demand / % change in income
% change = change / original value

No, I'm hoping to do something relating to finance at uni instead. I learnt this in business studies btw, my college didn't offer economics.
Which uni's have you applied to? I'm in y12 but trying to find out which ones have the best business schools

It is 0.5 as percentage of income is 5000/25000 = 20 %
