At the point of inflexion:the first derivative must be zero.

the second derivative must be zero,

if the next derivative is zero then the one following that must also be zero.

### Is the elasticity of demand curve equal to the slope of the demand curve?

Price elasticity of demand is equal to the instantaneous slope
of the demand curve, or the slope of the tangent line at any point
on the demand curve. So if the demand curve is represented by a
straight downward sloping line, then yes, price elasticity of
demand is equal to the slope of the demand curve. Otherwise, the
slope at any point on the curve is changing, and you can find the
it by taking the derivative of the demand curve function, which
will find the Price elasticity of demand at any single point. Thus,
the Price Elasticity of Demand changes at different points on the
demand curve.
