Please thumbs up if it was helpful , will be glad to know:)

Problem II: (T1)The demand function for widgets
is given by P = 270 - 3Q and the supply is P = 20 + 2Q.
a) Find the equilibrium price and quantity of widgets.
b) Is demand elastic or inelastic at the
equilibrium point? (Calculate the elasticity of demand at the
equilibrium and classify it as elastic or inelastic.)
c.) Draw a graph showing the market equilibrium
point and highlight the consumer surplus. Clearly label your axes
and intercepts. Calculate the...

In a given market, supply is given by the equation p = q^2 + 20,
and the demand is given by the equation p = 140 − 3q^2 − 6q. A tax
of $42 is placed on the production of the market’s product. Find
the after-tax equilibrium point for this market, that is, both the
quantity and the unit price in equilibrium.

Demand function: P = 7 – 2Q Supply function: P = 4 + Q Where P
is the farm price in $/bushel and Q is quantity in billions
(1,000,000,000s) of bushels sold. 1. a. Graph the Demand and Supply
curves for wheat and find the equilibrium price and quantity of
wheat sold in this competitive market. You can solve graphically or
algebraically as two equations with two unknowns. Show your
calculations.

Suppose the demand and supply functions for a product are P=
2800-8q-1/3q^2 and p = 400+2q, respectively, where p is in dollars
and q is the number of units. Find q that will maximize the tax
revenue

Consider a market for oil. Demand and supply of oil are given as
shown. The demand for oil is: Q = 12 - 2P The supply of oil is: Q =
4P.
What is the equilibrium price of oil? (Using the two
equations, solve for P)
Consider a market for oil. Demand and supply of oil are given as
shown. The demand for oil is: Q = 12 - 2P The supply of oil is: Q =
4P.
What is...

If the demand function for a commodity is given by p(q + 4) =
400 and the supply function is given by 2p – q – 38 = 0, find the
market equilibrium.

Market demand for calculators is P = 300 – 3Q and market supply
is P = 20 + 2Q. A) Calculate market equilibrium price and quantity.
B) How many calculators will be traded if a $10/unit sales tax is
implemented? C) Does it matter if we impose this tax on suppliers
or consumers? Why? D) At market equilibrium, is demand more or less
elastic than supply? E) Calculate the effects of the tax on
consumer surplus, producer surplus, tax revenue,...

A firms demand function is Q= 10 - P/6; its supply function is
Q= P/3 - 2.a) what is the equilibrium quantity?b) What is the equilibrium price?c.) Draw a graph showing the inverse DEMAND function, inverse
SUPPLY function, equilibrium price, and equilibrium quantity.Label the axes, the curves, and equilibrium. Also, show the
values of the intercepts of the inverse demand and supply
functions.

A.1. a. Suppose the demand function P = 10 - Q, and the supply
function is: P = Q, where P is price and Q is quantity. Calculate
the equilibrium price and quantity.
b. Suppose government imposes per unit tax of $2 on consumers.
The new demand function becomes: P = 8 – Q, while the supply
function remains: P = Q.
Calculate the new equilibrium price and quantity. c.
Based on (b), calculate the consumer surplus, producer surplus, tax...

1) The demand and supply functions for a certain product are
given by p = 150 − 0.5 q and p = 0.002 q^ 2 + 1.5 where p
is in dollars and q is the number of items.
a) Which is the demand function? Why do you know?
b) Find the equilibrium price and quantity.
c) Find the total gains from trade at the equilibrium price.
