• Price Ceiling of \$2
• Price Ceiling of \$3
• Price Floor of \$4

Equilibrium price and quantity are decided by the intersection of demand and supply curves. The equilibrium price is \$2.50 and quantity is 80.

When price ceiling of \$2 is imposed, then quantity demanded is 90 and quantity supplied is 60, so there is an excess demand of 90-60=30. Answer is excess demand of 30.

When price ceiling of \$3 is imposed, then quantity supplied is 100 and quantity demanded is 70, so there is an excess supply  of 100-70=30. Answer is excess supply of 30.

When price ceiling of \$4 is imposed, then quantity supplied is 140 and quantity demanded is 50, so there is an excess supply  of 140-50=90. Answer is excess supply of 90.
