Please remember to write down your name, the name of your TA and your discussion section. Staple pages together. 1 The demand curve The demand for bacon in the great island of Lala is given by q b = 120 - 2 p b + 60 c - 5 p t , where q D is the quantity of bacon (in pounds) demanded, p b is the price of a pound of bacon, c is equal to 0 if the weather is warm and equal to 1 if the weather is cold; and p t is the price of tortillas. Assume for the moment that the weather is warm ( c = 0) and that the price of tortillas is p t = 4. 1. Graph the demand curve for bacon. What is the demand when the price of bacon is \$20? How much does the demand change when the price drops from \$20 to \$10? Is this a shift or a movement along the demand curve? Answer: The demand curve is p b = 50 - 0 . 5 q b . See graph below. When p b = 20 the demand is q b = 60. The quantity demanded increases 20 pounds. It is a movement along the demand curve.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
