Suppose the market for laptop computers is perfectly competitive, with the following demand and supply equations for quantity per month: QS = -10,000 + 10P, QD = 20,000 - 5P


1. Solve for the equilibrium price and quantity.


2. When this perfectly competitive market is in equilibrium, what is the approximate dollar value of market consumer surplus?
