Explanation a. To find the market quantities supplied at each price, you add the GA quantity and the SC quantity at each price. This amount is the market quantity, which is the value entered into the "Market" column of the table. For example, at a price of $10, the GA quantity is 20,000 and the SC quantity is 18,000. Therefore, the market quantity at $10 is 20,000 + 18,000 = 38,000.
