Basics of the Free Market ModelSuppose the following graph represents the market for wheat. Use this graph to answer the followingquestions about the way the free market system works to allocate scarce resources.a.What will be the market equilibrium price and the market equilibrium quantity of wheat boughtand sold? Suppose the price originally starts out below the equilibrium price. Explain how themarket gets to the equilibrium price?If price starts too low then Qd>Qs and we have an excess demand which signals producers toraise price. This causes Qd to fall and Qs to rise until they finally meet at equilibrium.0510152025303540455055606570758085909510002468101214161820222426Price (U.S. dollars)Quantity (millions of bushels)Market DemandMarket SupplyPe=Qe=New MarketDemandNewPe=NewQe=50% increase
