Qd = 500 - 5P Qs = 100 + 5P At Market Equilibrium, Qd = Qs 500 - 5P = 100 + 5P 10P = 400 P = 40 Quantity at this Price Qd = 300 Qs = 300 (c) At market Price of 50, quanitity demanded is 250 and quantity supplied is 350. At this by consumers. Thus, market will move towards equilibrium until both quantity supplied (d) Mkt Price Demand Supply Decrease by 20% increase by 30 % 40 240 390 Qd = 80% (500 - 5P) 50 200 455 Qs = 130% ( 100 +5P)
