Answer the questions
below based on the Price Response Survey of Resume Magic book.
guidance, see pages 51-54 of Dolan and Simon
Westendorp reading in Session 1
and Regression Review Notes
van Westedorp what is the optimal book
price based on the data collected? What
are the learnings about possible prices from this method? Plot the data to
support your results.
Use a simple linear regression to estimate the
demand curve Q = a – bP, whereby a is the (constant) estimated intercept term
and b is the price coefficient of the independent variable (price per
unit). Interpret the main statistical
results and diagnostics. What is the
meaning of ‘b’ and is it statistically significant?
You may assume that the AVC (unit variable costs)
associated with the production and distribution of each book are $5/unit. Find
the ‘inverse demand curve’ where P is defined
as a function of Q. Use the estimated
demand function to calculate the profit
maximizing price and quantity.
Are there missing variables that would be useful to include in order to estimate the demand function more accurately.

You now need a reflective essay done bringing together all elements into a narrative essay that answers the following questions:
– Your chosen behavior to change – Why you picked that behavior – What your patterns are in relation to that behavior – What research did you find to help you understand how to change your behavior – strategies to change
