Answer to Question #43226 in Microeconomics for kelvin
Suppose supply of a good is perfectly elastic at a price of $5. The market demand curve for this good is linear, with zero quantity demanded at a price of $25. Given that the slope of this linear demand curve is -0.25, draw a supply and demand graph to illustrate the consumer surplus that occurs when the market is in equilibrium.
If Ed = -0.25 and quantity demanded is zero at P = $25, then Qd = 25 -0.25P.
As Qs = 5, in equilibrium Pe = $5. Qe = 25 - 0.25*5 = 23.75 units.
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
