Question

in
a competitive market, demand is described by qd = wpp - 5p, and
supply is qs = 100 + 5p. suppose a specific or unit tax of $10 per
unit of quantity traded is imposed on the consumers. what is the
equilibrium quantity after the tax is imposed?

qd=
200 -5p

Answer #1

1. Since the tax is imposed on consumers they need to pay an additional price, therefore, the tax has been added to the price in the demand function.

2. After determining the equilibrium price, substitute it in the new demand function or supply function to get the equilibrium quantity after tax.

Suppose the market demand curve for a product is given by
QD=100-5P and the market supply curve is given by

producers.
What is the quantity demanded?
What is the quantity supplied?
What is the amount of the surplus?

Suppose the market for grass seed can be expressed as: Demand:
QD = 200 - 5p
Supply: QS = 40 + 5p
3.1 Calculate the price and quantity in equilibrium
3.2 If the government collects a $5 specific tax from sellers,
how much will the quantity
demanded change from the amount demanded before the tax? What
price will consumers pay after the tax? What price will sellers
receive after the tax? What is the tax revenue?
3.3 Draw the graph...

The demand and supply functions of a given competitive market
are provided as follows: Qd = 100 – 2P Qs = 70 + 3P You are
required to; (a) Find the equilibrium price and quantity sold. 7
marks (b) Assuming that the government of Ghana has imposed GH¢2.00
per unit tax on the good in the market. What will be the new
equilibrium price and quantity in the market? 11 marks

Monthly demand Qd=100 - 5P and monthly supply is QS=
50+5P the total cost of its production is TC=25Q+Qpower2 +50
What is equilibrium price and quantity in competitive
market
What is the firm profit maximizing level of
production, total revenue, total cost and profit at this market
equilibrium

Demand for flower bouquets in a suburban town is described by:
QD = 50 – 5P + 2Y, where Q is quantity, P is price per unit, and Y
is an index of consumer income. Similarly, supply is described by:
QS = –5 + 10P. (a) If Y = 100, what is equilibrium price and
output? (b) If Y rises to 122.5, what is the new equilibrium price
and output? Draw a graph showing the old and new equilibrium.

The following equations describe the market for Fitbits:
Demand equation: Qd = 2000 - 5P; Supply equation:
Qs = 20 P
(a) Find the equilibrium quantity and price for Fitbits; (b) In
an effort to encourage people to get healthy, the Government
imposed a price ceiling of $50 on Fitbits. How many Fitbits are
sold with the price ceiling?; (c) Is there excess demand or excess
supply at $50? If so, how much?

Suppose the market for cigarettes is characterized by the
following information: Qd = 70 – 5P [Demand] Qs = 3P – 10
[Supply]
Suppose the government imposes a sales tax of $2 per unit.
Calculate the Dead-Weight- Loss due to the sales tax.
[Note: P = price per unit; Qd = thousands of units demanded; Qs
= thousands of units supplied]

Consider the following - Market Demand: QD = 300 − 5P
Market Supply: QS = 5P
Total Cost: TC = 150 + q2
Marginal Cost: MC = 2q
Solve for the profit maximizing output the perfectly competitive
firm would produce.
Solve for the maximum profits.
Solve for the productively efficient output.

2. Suppose a market is characterized by the following
supply and demand equations:
QD=1,000-5P
QS=-500+10P
A) Determine equilibrium price and quantity.
B) Suppose that the government taxes production such that for
every unit produced, sellers must pay the government $10. Determine
the new equilibrium price(s) and quantity.
C) Suppose that instead of taxes, the government imposes a price
floor such that the minimum amount the good can be sold for is
$150. Determine the new equilibrium price and quantity.
D)...

. The market for a product is defined by the following demand
and supply curves:
Qd=20-7p
Qs=-4+5P
