Econ Question - Inferior Goods

  1. Feb 3, 2007 #1

    I new here and I'd like a little help please.

    Here is the question:
    Suppose demand is given by Q = 30 – 3P. Does this indicate increasing prices increases revenue?

    I'm not sure how to go about figuring this out....what should I look for?

    Thank you in advance!

    Revenue is P*Q, so you take P*Q and you tell me if increasing the price will increase revenue.
