A rise in the price of the commodity

Other things being equal, a decrease in quantity demand of a commodity can be caused by a rise in price of the commodity. Prof. Alfred Marshall defined the law thus: “The greater the amount to be sold, the smaller must be the price at which it is offered in order that it may find purchasers or in other words the amount demanded increases with a fall in price and diminishes with a rise in price.”
