CLASS SUPPLEMENT # 8 (Page 1 of 2) CONSUMER SURPLUS NOTES MARGINAL VALUE (MV): The maximum consumer is willing to pay for Xth unit. (Height of demand curve at unit X) MARGINAL COST (MC): The price paid for Xth unit. MARGINAL CONS SURPLUS on Unit X (MCS X ) = MV X - MC X (Distance between D and Price at unit X) TOTAL VALUE (TV) = 3 MV of all units consumed. (Area under demand curve to quantity consumed) TOTAL COST (TC) = 3 MC of all units purchased. (TC = P X Q if P is same for all units) (Area under price line to quantity purchased) TOTAL CONS SURPLUS (TCS) = 3 MCS for all units consumed. (Area between demand curve and price line to quantity.)
