If Melissa buys an iPod for $100 and gets a consumer surplus of $80, then her willingness to pay is $100 + $80 = $180.
If she had bought the iPod on sale for $70, then her consumer surplus have been 180 - 70 = $110.
If the price of an iPod were $200, then her consumer surplus have been 180 - 200 = -$20, so Melissa would not buy this iPod.
