Question

The demand curve for tickets to concert is given as follows: Q = 20 - P. If the price falls from €5 to €3, what is the change in consumer surplus from concert tickets?

an increase of €32

an increase of €225

an increase of €176.50

an increase of €112.50

which is correct ?

Answer #1

The given demand function is

Q = 20 - P

Consumer surplus is the difference between maximum price willing to pay by the consumers and the actual market price. It is the area below the demand curve.

The maximum price willing to pay is the price when quantity demanded is zero

0 = 20 - P

P = 20

The maximum price willing to pay = 20

**Consumer surplus when price is 5**

****The difference between maximum price and
actual price = 20 - 5 = 15

Quantity demanded when price is 3 = 20 -P

= 20 - 5 = 15

Demand = 15

Consumer surplus when price is 5 = (1/2) * 15 *15 =
**112.5**

**Consumer surplus when price is 3**

The difference between maximum price and actual price = 20 - 3 = 17

Demand when price is 3 = 20 - 3 = 17

Consumer surplus when price is 3 = (1/2) * 17 *17 =
**144.5**

Change in consumer surplus = 144.5 -112.5 =
**32**

**Correct answer : An increase of 32**

A market has a demand curve given by P = 800 – 10Q where P =
the price per unit and Q = the number of units. The supply curve is
given by P =100 + 10Q.(10 points) Graph the demand and supply curves and calculate
the equilibrium price and quantity in this market.(5 points) Calculate the consumer surplus at equilibrium.(5 points) Calculate the producer surplus at equilibrium.(5
points)(5 points) Calculate the total surplus at equilibrium

A person’s demand and supply equations for pork per month are
as follows:
Demand: Q = 25 – 5*P
Supply : Q = -20 + 10*P
Required:
a. What are the market equilibrium price ($/kg) and quantity
(kgs/month) for pork?
b. At the market equilibrium price, what are the consumer
surplus and producer surplus?

24. Cournot duopolists face a market demand curve given by P =
90 - Q where Q is total market demand. Each firm can produce output
at a constant marginal cost of 30 per unit. There are no fixed
costs. Determine the (1) equilibrium price, (2) quantity, and (3)
economic profits for the total market, (4) the consumer surplus,
and (5) dead weight loss.

4. Let's say that the market demand curve for gasoline is Q =
100 - P (however, P is price, Q is quantity), and that the private
cost curve of the gasoline supply industry is MC = 10 + Q. And
suppose that the marginal cost curve due to the marginal damage of
pollution from gasoline supply is MEC = Q.
(a) First, calculate and graph the market balance of the price
and sales of this gasoline market when there...

Suppose that the demand curve for wheat is Q=100−10p and the
supply curve is Q=10p. The government imposes a price ceiling of
p=3
i) Describe how the equilibrium changes. ii) What effect does
this price ceiling have on consumer surplus, producer surplus, and
deadweight loss?

A monopolist has a cost function given by C(Q)=Q2 and
faces the demand curve p=120-q
a. what is the profit maximizing monopolist output and price
b. what is the consumer surplus ? Monopoly profit?
c. now suppose the monopolist has to follow the narginal cost
pricing policy in other word she has to charge competitive prices
what is her output and price?

The equation for a demand curve is P=2/Q. What is the elasticity
of demand as price falls from 5 to 4? What is the elasticity of
demand as the prices falls from 9 to 8? Would you expect the
answers to be the same? Why/why not?
