Question

Suppose the demand for park visits is Q = 10,000 −100P. Based on the given equation, please answer the following two questions.

(a) If park visits are free, how many visitors will attend?

(b) How will your answer change if the park adds a $20.00 admission fee?

Answer #1

We have been given the demand equation as a funcion of price.

Q = 10,000 - 100P

a) If park visits are free, it means that there will be no price charged from visitirs. So putting P=0 in demand equation,

Q = 10,000 - 100(0)

Q = 10,000

**So, 10,000 visitors will attend if park visits are
free.**

b) If there is admission fee charged to visit the park, then there will be reduction in demand. Putting P=20 in equation,

Q = 10,000 - 100(20)

Q = 10,000 - 2,000

Q = 8,000

**So, 8,000 visitors will attend if there is admission fee
of $20 on park visits. Demand falls by 2,000 visitors as price
rises.**

Suppose the demand curve for a public park is Q = 80 – 2p, where
Q is the number of visitor-days and p is the entry price. The
marginal cost of operating the park is MC = 10.
What is the efficient level of entrance fee and the number of
visitors at this fee level (assume no congestion problems)?
At the price/quantity combination of (a), what is the price
elasticity of demand for park visitation? (To find this, take a...

The typical customer of an amusement park has a demand for rides
of qD = 30 – 10PD where q is measured in number of rides and P in
dollars per ride. a. Suppose the marginal cost of any ride is $2.
How much should the amusement park charge in admission fee? Clearly
explain.
b. Suppose instead the marginal cost of a ride increases with
the overall number of rides according to the schedule MC = $2 +
0.001Q where...

Suppose the government is considering increased spending on
maintaining a national park. You have been hired to evaluate the
benefits of this proposal as part of a benefit-cost analysis. Use
the travel cost approach to accomplish this goal, based on a $20
admission fee to the park and the following before and after
recreational demand functions where Q is the number of visitors in
thousands and P is the admission fee: Before new-spending policy:
P=72-0.04Qd After new-spending policy: P=90-0.04Qd The...

9.21) Suppose the domestic demand equation for a widget is given
by Q = 80 – 2P and the domestic supply equation is Q = -10 + P.
a) Assume there is free trade and the world price of the widget
is 20 liras. How many units of this widget will be imported?
b) Calculate the change in the consumer supply and producer
supply if the government applies a 5 liras per unit tariff on the
product. What will be...

Health Care Demand
An individual's demand for physician office visits in a
given year is given by, Q = 10 - 0.04P, where Q is the number of
office visits and P is the out-of-pocket price paid by the
individual for each visit. Assume the market price of an office
visit is $180.
Use this information to answer the questions
below.
QUESTIONS:
1. Without insurance, how many office visits will the
individual make in one year?

Suppose that the demand curve of the only customer in an
amusement park is Qd = 200 - P.
The park charges an admission fee of Php 100, while each ride
costs Php 9.
Answer the following questions:
1. Determine the supply curve of the amusement park
2. Determine the producer surplus without distortions in the
market
3. Determine the consumer surplus without distortions in the
market
4. What is the price at which deadweight loss is minimized?
5. At...

Lisa and Maggie like to go to the only amusement park in town.
Lisa’s demand for rides is given by Q(L) = 5 - P, and Maggie’s
demand is Q(M) = 15 - 3P (P is the price per ride). The marginal
cost for the park of each ride is 1 dollar.
(a) Suppose that the park charges P = 3 dollars per ride. What
is the maximal entrance fee that the park can charge so that Lisa
will choose...

Suppose that the market demand for physical therapies is given
by the equation P=100-Q. The cost of each therapy is 40.
a. What is the socially optimal number of physical
therapies?
b. Suppose that the price of physical therapies is 40. Suppose
further that patients have insurance that pays for 50% of the price
of physical therapies. How many physical therapies will be
purchased? What is the amount of deadweight loss from insurance
moral hazard?
c. How would your analysis...
