Equilibrium price:

500(P-2) = 11000 – 1000P

500P - 1000 = 11000 – 1000P

1500P = 12000

P = 12000/1500 = $8

Equilibrium quantity:

Q = 500(8-2) = 3,000


Producer profit:

(8-4)(3,000)(1/2) = 6,000

Consumer profit (less):

(4-8)(3,000)(1/2) = -6,000

Supply: Q = 500(P - 2) Demand: Q = 11000 - 1000P And now let us say that PDC imposes a price ceiling of $4 on ice-cream sandwiches—on the grounds that nobody should ever have to pay more than $4 for an ice-cream sandwich. Calculate producer surplus and Consumer surplus?
