Use the following generalized linear demand relation to answer questions 1 through 5:
680

d
R
Q
P
M
P
=

+

where
M
is income and
R
P
is the price of a related good,
R
.
1.
From this relation it is apparent that the good is:
a.
an inferior good
b.
a substitute for good
R
c.
a normal good
d.
a complement for good
R
e.
both
c
and
d
2.
If
M
= $15,000 and
R
P
= $20, the demand function is
a.

If
M

, equilibrium price
and quantity are, respectively,
a.
P
= $55 and
Q
= 195.
b.
P

Q
= 38.
c.
P
= $12 and
Q
= 200.
d.
P
= $50 and
Q
= 170.
e.
P
= $40 and
Q
= 250.
4.
If
M
= $15,000 and
R
P
= $20 and the supply function is

, then, when the
price of the good is $60,
a.
there is a shortage of 60 units of the good.
