Total revenue refers to the sellers total gross _______________________________________. Quantity D S Price P Q 0 receipts from the sale of goods and services Total revenue = consumers ________________ Profit = ______________________ total revenue – total cost total expenditure Total revenue and profit = total _______ value market

Take this challenge 1 Mr Chan owns a restaurant. There are people waiting outside his restaurant for lunch every day. Explain why this happens. Q1Q1 P0P0 0 PriceNumber of seats Q0Q0 S D Since the price set by Mr Chan is _______ the equilibrium price, there is a shortage ( ___ - ___ ). below Q1Q1 Q0Q0 So there are __________ people waiting outside the restaurant. Q 1 - Q 0 Q

Take this challenge 1 If Mr Chan raises the price of the food, what will be the effect on the total revenue? (Suppose there are still some people waiting outside the restaurant after the increase in price.) Is this related to the price elasticity of demand for the food? Suppose the price increases from P 0 to P 1. P1P1 The price __________ but the quantity transacted ________________________. increases remains unchanged at Q 0 Total revenue will _________.increase The change in total revenue depends / does not depend on the price elasticity of demand for the food. Q P0P0 0 Price Number of seats Q0Q0 S D Q1Q1

Take this challenge 2 Suppose a new medicine to cure cancers, which has fewer side effects than existing ones, has been invented. Should the producer raise the price of the medicine if he wants to increase total revenue? Explain. Since there are no _________________ for the medicine, the demand for it is _________. As the demand is inelastic, an increase in price will ________ the sellers total revenue. So he should _______ the price. close substitutes inelastic increase raise D Quantity Price Gain Loss Q
