    That only refers to the usual downward sloping demand curve. Elasticity is related to how much sales decline when prices increase by how much. You don't include any numbers so you don't really have anything you can say about the elasticity.

    I suppose the answer to the question could be that Elasticity of Demand is therefore a negative number.

    It's inelastic. The increase in price will cause a much more deline in quantity demanded in percentage terms. The revenue will decline.
