Joy's frozen yogurt shops have enjoyed rapid growth in northeastern states in recent years. From the analysis of joy's various outlets, it was found that the demand curve follows this pattern. Q=200-300P+120 I +65T-250Ac+400 Aj

Q= number of cups served

I= per capita income

T= average outdoor temperature

Ac= competition's monthly advertising expenditure

Aj=joy's own monthly advertising expenditures

P=1.50, I=10, T=60, Ac=15, Aj=10
