Homework Answers

Answer #1

a) yes

Law of demand says that demand and price are inversely related, other things constant.

Quantity demanded is increasing with decrease in price.

b) equilibrium is reached when quantity demanded is equal to quantity supplied. Equilibrium quantity is 3000 and equilibrium price is 3.

c) there is surplus because supply 4000 is greater than demand 1600 by. 4000-1600= 2400.

d) At price 1 demand is greater than supply, so all the quantity supplied will be bought and sold, i.e.1400

e) there is a surplus as supply is now greater than demand.

Price adjusts and new equilibrium is reached when quantity demanded is 4000 and new quantity supplied is 2200+1800= 4000 at equilibrium price is 2.
