The current demand for taxi rides is given by P = 50 - .015Q with P representing the price of a taxi ride in dollars and Q representing the daily quantity of taxicab rides. The supply of taxi rides depends on how many cabs are on the road, and how hard each driver works. Supply is given by P = 10 + .005Q. The questions below refer to this taxi industry in Tarraana. This information can be used in answering questions 1-5. 1.

Now, imagine that the mayor of Tarraana, David Muller, decides to support the taxi drivers because they are claiming that the price is not high enough to cover their costs. The mayor plans to do so by establishing a limit on the number of taxis and the number of rides. There will be a limit of 20 taxis in the city and each one will only be allowed to run a maximum of 50 rides per day. If this quota is successfully implemented, how much will the new level of producer surplus be each day?...
