Demand Function – D(q)
ã p =D(q)
ã In this function the input is q and output p
ã q-independent variable/p-dependent variable
[Recall y=f(x)]
ã p =D(q) the price at which q units of the good can be
sold
ã Unit price-p
ã Most demand functions- Quadratic [ PROJECT 1]
ã Demand curve, which is the graph of D(q), is generally
downward sloping
– Why?

ã As quantity goes down, what happens to
price?
-price per unit increa
