Graph the accompanying demand data, and then use the midpoint formula for $E_{d}$ to determine price elasticity of demand for each of the four possible $1$ price changes. What can you conclude about the relationship between the slope of a curve and its elasticity? Explain in a nontechnical way why demand is elastic in the northwest segment of the demand curve and inelastic in the southeast segment. (FIGURE CAN'T COPY)
