I need help with applying the equations to answer questions a, b, and c.


Where QD and QS represent the quantities demanded and supplied in both countries (in billions of tons) and P represents the Dollar price per ton of corn in each country.

a. Graph the US and European Union supply and demand curves for corn (what are the intercepts?).

b. Determine the US and European Union equilibrium prices in the absence of trade.

c. Find the surplus (or shortage) in both countries at the price of $ 20.


Equations for corn:

EU = 70 - 2 PEU

 

EU = 20 + 3PEU

 

US = 130 - 3PUS

 

US = 30 + PUS
