Unformatted text preview: exactly equals the real wage at the quantity of labor demanded. Therefore: A W/P-100 ND : or ), ND 100 ( A P W w =-= = When P = \$2, A = 1.0, and W = \$10: 95 . 1 2 \$ / 10 \$ 100 ND =-= . When P = \$2, A = 1.0, and W = \$20: 90 . 1 2 \$ / 20 \$ 100 ND =-= . ND = 100 - W/P. W/P N 100 100 ND ND = 95 at w = 5. Therefore, w = 5 is the equilibrium real wage. 3 b.) For A = 2.0: 2 P / W 100 ND-= W/P N 200 100 ND ND = 95 at w =10. Therefore w = 10 is the equilibrium real wage. 4...
