By definition, in equilibrium the quantity supplied (Q s ) is equal to the quantity demanded (Q d ). The supply function of wheat (S w ) and the demand function of wheat (D w ) are both linear with respect to the price of wheat (P w ) as defined below: S w : Q sw = 12 + 2*P w D w : Q dw = 60 – 4*P w 1. Graph the relevant ranges of S w and D w . The relevant ranges are those values for which P w ≥ 0 and Q w ≥ 0. Label the curves S and D. Indicate the areas where we have shortage or surplus and point the equilibrium. Be careful as to how you define the ranges of the curves. To do that you simply have to
