Rice is produced under perfectly competitive conditions. Individual farmers have U-shaped, long-run average cost curves that reach a minimum average cost of $3 per bushel when 100 bushels are produced. If the market demand curve for rice is given by Q=2600-200P, what is the long-run equilibrium price of rice? How much rice will be demanded and how many rice farms will there be? Support your answer with a relevant diagram.
