Joy’s Frozen Yogurt shops have enjoyed rapid growth in northeastern states in recent years. From
the analysis of Joy’s various outlets, it was found that the demand curve follows this pattern:
Q = 200 – 300P + 120I + 65T – 250Ac + 400Aj
where Q = number of cups served per week
P = average price paid for each cup
I = per capita income in the given market (thousands)
T = average outdoor temperature
Ac = competition’s monthly advertising expenditures (thousands)
Aj = Joy’s own monthly advertising expenditures (thousands)
One of the outlets has the following conditions: P = 1.50, I = 10, T = 60, Ac = 15, Aj = 10.
