Let’s say the demand for apples is Q d =100-4P and the supply is Q s =-20+2P a. Draw the demand and supply curves. b. Find the equilibrium price and quantity. c. Find the consumer surplus, producer surplus and the deadweight loss at this equilibrium level. d. Find the excess demand/excess supply of the commodity when the price is P=10. Show your calculations. e. Now assume that the government imposes a price ceiling of 15. Find the consumer and producer surplus and the deadweight loss in this case. Q.2. Suppose that the equilibrium rent for a two-bedroom apartment in downtown Chicago is \$900 per month. The city council decides to place a price ceiling on apartments and will not allow landlords to charge more than \$700 per month. Draw this situation using a graph. Make sure that you show the original equilibrium and the effect of the price ceiling on the market. What will happen in this market?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
