Question

Domestic demand for a good is QD = 3000 - 25P. The domestic supply of the good is QS = 20P. Foreign producers can supply any quantity at a price (P) of $30. Is there a shortage or a surplus? What is the quantity of shortage or surplus?

Answer #1

Answer is shortage of 1650 units when the price is $30.

Equilibrium price and quantity is determined by the intereaction of demand and supply equations.

QD = 3000 - 25P

QS= 20P

3000-25P= 20P

3000=45P

3000/45=P

P= $66.66

At price of $66.66 quantity demanded is 3000-25($66.66) = 3000 - 1667= 1333 units, quantity supplied is 20 ($66.66) = 1333 units.

At price of $30 quantity demanded is 3000-25($30) = 3000 - 750= 2250 units, quantity supplied is 20 ($30) = 600 units. Shortage is 2250-600 = 1650 units.

The demand and supply for a good are respectively QD = 16 – 2P +
2I and QS = 2P – 4 with QD denoting the quantity demanded, QS the
quantity supplied, and P the price for the good. Suppose the
consumers’ income is I = 2. 6) Determine the price-elasticity of
demand if P = 2. 7) Determine the income-elasticity of demand if P
= 2. 8) Determine the price-elasticity of supply if P = 4. 9)
Determine consumers’...

Suppose the domestic supply (QS) and demand (QD) for scooters in
China
1- Suppose the domestic supply (QS) and demand (QD) for scooters
in China are given by the following set of equations:
QS = –25 + 10P
QD = 875 – 5P

unit price of $50, how many scooters will be imported, produced and
demanded in China?
a- Quantity Imported = 150, Quantity Produced =...

In Smalltown, Pennsylvania, the demand function for men's
haircuts is Qd=500−30p+0.08Y, Qd=500−30p+0.08Y, where Qd
Qd is quantity demanded per month, p the price of a haircut, and
Y the average monthly income in the town. The supply function for
men's haircuts is Qs=100+20p−20w, Qs=100+20p−20w, where Qs Qs is
the quantity supplied and w the average hourly wage of barbers.
If Y=$5,000
Y=$5,000 and w=$10,
w=$10, use Excel to calculate quantity demanded and
quantity supplied for p=$5,
p=$5, $10, $15,...
