    Describe the outcomes to equilibrium price and quantity when supply and demand curves shift when 1) supply is normal (elasticity = 1) and demand is elastic, 2) supply is normal (elasticity = 1) and demand is inelastic, 3) demand is normal (elasticity = -1) and supply is elastic, 4) demand is normal (elasticity = -1) and supply is inelastic, 5) demand and supply are both elastic, 6) demand and supply are both inelastic. In the competitive model the interaction between supply and demand is is…
