Cable tax to the satellite tax, Public Economics

According to estimates by Goolsbee and Petrin (2004), the elasticity of demand for basic cable service is ?0.51, and the elasticity of demand for direct broadcast satellites is ?7.40.

If the community's goal is to raise the money as efficiently as possible, what should be the ratio of the cable tax to the satellite tax? Discuss briefly the assumptions behind your calculation.
