a.

"Q_D=Q_S"

"120-4p=6p-80"

"10p=200"

"p=20"

"Q=40"

b.

consumer surplus is "\\frac {1}{2}(30-20)\\times 40=200"

producer surplus is "\\frac{1}{2}(20-\\frac{80}{6})\\times40=133"

total surplus  is 200+133=333

c. If the dictator had banned broccoli, sellers would have incurred large losses, since their losses would have included the cost of broccoli cultivation and lost profits.
