You are starting your own Internet business. You decide to form a company that will sell cookbooks online. Justcookbooks.com is scheduled to launch 6 months from today. You estimate that the annual cost of this business will be as follows:
Technology (Web design and maintenance): $5,000
Postage and handling: $1,000
Inventory of cookbooks: $2,000
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 = 10,000 – 90P, where
Q = the number of cookbooks sold per month
P = the retail price of books.
One graph plus all empirical formulas and subsequent calculations. . .
Show what the demand curve would look like if you sold the books between $25 and $35.
