a) Find the corners of the demand curve by setting price equal to 0 and determining the quantity demanded. Then determine what price would result in 0 demand Repeat for Supply Then set Q D = Q S : 36 – 3P* = -4 + P* to find the market equilibrium price. Solve for P* to find P* = 10 Put P* into either Q D or Q S to find Q* = 6 (remember they are the same at equilibrium – that’s why we set them equal to one another

    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.
