Suppose 5% increase in price causes 5% increase in expenditure on the good, what is the price elasticity of demand?

Answered by Expert

When expenditure on a good is increasing, proportionate to increase in price, the total quantity consumed of the good remains constant. Constant consumption means zero elasticity of demand.
