Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

we select two points, first p=10, then d= (-7/4)(10)+18=0.5

finding the derivative of the demand equation, then x'=-7/4

the E(10)=(10/0.5)*(-7/4)

=20*-1.75

=-35 but we ignore the negative to have 35.

for every increase in price the quantity demand will decrease by 35.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
