college calculus course. The demand curve is given by
P=100Q and the supply curve by
P=20+4Q. The competitive

• Demand Curve P=100Q
Supply Curve P=20+4Q
Two equations in two unknowns.
Supply curve crosses demand curve where
100Q=20+4Q.
This happens where 80=5Q or Q=16 The demand curve is given by
P=100Q and the supply curve by
P=20+4Q. The competitive
equilibrium Price is

• We found that Q=16.
• We know from demand equation that
P=100Q.
• So P=84 And on to our main lecture… The price of a good rises and so
does the quantity sold. These
observations are consistent with:
1. An upward shift of the
supply curve.
2. A downward shift of
the supply curve.
3. An upward shift of the
demand curve.
4. A downward shift of
the demand curve. ft
