Law of Demand:

The law of demand states that the price of a commodity falls, the quantity demanded of that commodity will increase. It explains only the direction of change in demand and not the extent of change. This deficiency is removed by the concept of elasticity of demand.

Demand is the desire backed by willingness to pay and ability to pay.  Merely,  a wish to have a commodity does not become demand. A person wishing to have a commodity should be willing to pay for it and should have ability to pay for it. Thus a desire becomes demand if it is backed by willingness to pay and ability to pay. Demand is meaningless unless it is stated with reference to a price. The term elasticity was developed by Alfred Marshall, and is used to measure the relationship between price and quantity demanded.

Elasticity means responsiveness. Elasticity of demand refers to the responsiveness of quantity demanded of a commodity to change in its price.The concept of elasticity of demand plays a crucial role in business-decisions regarding fixing of price with a view to make larger.

The progress of the training so far has shown that nothing is too difficult, its only our inhibitions which makes everything difficult. I never thought that i would learn so much with so little of efforts. I am enjoying everybit of it and I am sure everyone of us find it very intresting.

Re: Thank You Ma'm! I have registered myself in the wizig!

(Comment.gif: Your page is looking great - if I might humble offer a suggestion that I think will help improve it. In your main Div statement instead of restricting the width to 600px change it to percentage either 100% or better yet 99% - this will fill in the dead area you have to the right of the page. Most browsers are set to view at 1024X768 or better. Just a humble suggestion from a fellow wiki friend.)

Re: Thank You! It's great priviledge to know you!

{{Dear Mr. Narayan,this is Satarupa here.I had been really fascinated by your " How to reach them & teach them " initiative.Personally i'm honestly interested in this kind of activity where i feel my education will get if i can provide fundamental training to people who are not so blessed to be on this earth,i mean children from slum & all.Now it will be real pleasure if we work hand in hand.Meanwhile i would request you to visit my user page,where you would find that i'm already associated with NGOs teaching girls( from diverse background viz. rescued from being trafficked,brothels etc.)appearing for 10th standard exam.I would be glad if you could suggest how to start with & initially what can be done.Thanks.Satarupa 10:51, 30 July 2010 (UTC)}}
