Additional Problem #3 : Consumer and Producer Surplus Now consider the market for pizza. Suppose that the market demand for pizza is given by the equation P = 40 – 4Q D , and the market supply for pizza is given by the equation P = 10 + 2Q S , where Q D = quantity demanded, Q S = quantity supplied, P = price consumers pay (per pizza) and the price producers receive (per pizza). Graph the supply and demand schedules for pizza and indicate the equilibrium price and quantity. (Your answer must contain your complete algebraic solution).
