Axia College Material
Answer the following questions.
1. If the price of a good increases, what happens to the quantity demanded? When Prices increase people tend to buy less.
2. If the price of a good decreases, what happens to the quantity supplied? When prices decrease then so does the supply because they don’t want people to buy at the lower cost.
3. Does a change in price create curve shifts? Explain. Honestly I’m not sure; I would think that if a price goes up then yes it would but if a price went down it wouldn’t.
