Question description

You must give up your full-time job, which paid \$50,000 per year, and you worked part-time for half of the year. The average retail price of the cookbooks will be \$30, and their average cost will be \$20. Assume that the equation for demand is Q = 40,000 – 500P, where Q = the number of cookbooks sold per month P = the retail price of books. Show what the demand curve would look like if you sold the books between \$25 and \$35. Address the following questions: 1.What is the elasticity of the demand for cookbooks bought this way? 2.Is the business worth pursuing so far? 3.Suppose that you expect to sell about 22,000 cookbooks per month online, and assume your overhead, technology, and equipment costs are fixed. What are your total costs? 4.What are your marginal costs? 5.What market structure have you entered, and why? 6.What can you do to guarantee success in this market? 7.What pricing strategy might you use?
