Demand is said to be price elastic if there is a relatively large change in the quantity demanded of a product following a change in its price: that is, buyers are very responsive to changes in price.
If the PED for a product is greater than 1 (ignoring the minus sign), then demand is price elastic.
This is because the percentage change in quantity demanded is larger than the percentage change in the price of the product
