Hulk, HaMJ G) Quantity of X When both the demand and supply curve shift. the outcome of either equilibrium price or equilibrium quantity will depend on the relative magnitudes of the size of the shifts. Therefore, ambiguity on ONE of these outcome dimensions exists. To determine on which dimension (equilibrium P or equilibrium Q) the ambiguity lies. one needs to use th following market matrix: _uqm¢m—mm—u————mmo—n ——~._—_———qpmn———---w_—-—-q. —n———-——-—_~p»_-uu——— 4am—_—uwm-——g——n—nu——quu~_n <. by #125244) . “r2721: EQCeci- P ’T‘ ‘bejefi4xet~ ‘ {ékchange in Demand for 3 Change in Supply for x Change in Equilibrium Quantity of x Change in Equilibrium Frice of X ...
