Question #64148

In a small country town, the demand for bread is Pd = 200 - 0.1Q. The supply of bread is Ps = - 50 + 0.4Q. P is the price of bread (in cents) and Q is measured in number of loaves per day

Expert's answer

Pd = Ps

200 – 0.1Q = -50 + 0.4Q

0.5Q = 250

Q = 500 (loaves of bread)

If Q = 500, then Pd = 200-0.1*500 = 150 (cents)

So, we have such results:

Q = 500 and Pd = Ps = 150.

200 – 0.1Q = -50 + 0.4Q

0.5Q = 250

Q = 500 (loaves of bread)

If Q = 500, then Pd = 200-0.1*500 = 150 (cents)

So, we have such results:

Q = 500 and Pd = Ps = 150.
