between -1 an 0 it is inelastic demand
between -1 and infinity it is elastic demand
-1 is unitary elastic
0 is perfectly inelastic
infinity is perfectly elastic

you take away the minus sign pretty sure. so anything > 1 would be elastic, smaller than 1 would be inelastic and 1 is called unitary elastic

You don't need to know much about elasticity. Just know that elasticity for more than 1 is elastic and less than 1 is inelastic and just know factors that cause this and what they look like on a graph.

true but because it is demand, the minus sign is to indicate that the curve slopes downwards wheres for supply there is no minus sign (except unitary price elastic supply) because the curve slopes upwards. You may not need to know all of this for AQA (I do OCR)
