Expert's answer
Answer:
A) P=MR=MC
Qs=P+2
26-2P=P+2
P=8
Qd=Qs=10

b) Consumer surplus  is calculated by analyzing the difference between what consumers are willing and able to pay for a good or service relative to its market price, or what they actually do spend on the good or service. A consumer surplus occurs when the consumer is willing to pay more for a given product than the current market price.

CS=0.5*(10-0)*(13- 8)=25
