College of Saint Mary Equilibrium Price Questions

Need help with my Economics question – I’m studying for my class.

Principles of Microeconomics

Question 1.

Use the supply and demand equations below to answer the following questions:

QS = 2,000P – 10,000 (or P = 5 + 1/2000 QS)

QD = 20,000 – 1,000P (or P = 20 -1/1000 QD)

(Show all calculations)

  • Solve for the equilibrium price and quantity in the market. [2 marks]
  • Illustrate these curves on a graph, labelling the curves, intercepts and equilibrium price and quantity. [2 marks]
  • Suppose a price floor is set at P = $12 per unit, what is the new quantity demanded and supplied? Because of the price floor, what is the amount of the shortage or surplus in the market? [2 marks]
  • On your diagram, show the price floor, identify the area representing the deadweight loss imposed on society and identify the share of consumer surplus transferred to producers. [2 marks]

Question 2.

Use the following figure, which shows the market for muffins per day, to determine:

  • What are the equilibrium price and equilibrium quantity of muffins? [1 mark]
  • In equilibrium, calculate the value of consumer and producer surplus. [2 marks]
  • To improve the health of the population, the government introduces a daily quota of 2,000 muffins per day, what is the new price consumers pay? [1 mark]
  • What is the value of consumer surplus after the quota is introduced? [1 mark]
  • What is the value of the Deadweight Loss? [1 mark]
  • If instead of a quota, the government introduces a per unit tax on muffins which reduces the quantity consumed daily to 2,000, what is the size of the per unit tax? Show the impact of the tax by drawing the after-tax supply curve on the diagram.[2 marks]
  • How is the incidence of the tax distributed between consumers and sellers? [1 mark]
  • How much tax revenue will the government collect? [1 mark]
  • As a seller, would you prefer the government to impose a quota or a tax on muffins? Briefly explain.

ECON 100 Strayer Wk 3 Supermarkets & Grocery Stores Microeconomics Case Excel Sheet

I need help with a Economics question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

In this exercise, you will demonstrate your ability to find microeconomic data from public sources and to make a simple spreadsheet in Excel.

  1. Start by choosing an industry that interests you.
    • Remember that an industry is a group of companies that do the same thing. For example, Ford is a company; automobile manufacturing is an industry.
  2. Choose a microeconomic variable for your industry.
    • It could be prices, sales, production, advertising, or investment.
  3. Do some research and find three years of this microeconomic variable for your industry.
    • For example, you might find automobile sales data for 2017, 2018, and 2019.
  4. Go to the Census Bureau (NAICS) website and select an industry that has a description. Some of the smaller industries are named, but not described.
    • The industry could be broad, such as industry 11 Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, and Hunting, or it could be narrow, such as industry 112112 Cattle Feedlots. The more digits in the industry label, the narrower the industry
  5. Prepare an Excel spreadsheet that has two columns and four rows. In cell A1, type in the industry you selected and bold the text. In the heading for cell A2, type “Year.” In cells A3, A4, and A5 descending below this heading, type the years for your data. In the automobile example, this would be 2017, 2018, and 2019.
  6. In the heading for column two, cell B2, type the name of the variable you chose. For example, it could be “Sales.” In the cells below this heading, type the sales data for each of the three years.
  7. Underneath your table, type “Source:” Then paste the URL of the source where you found your data.

Skill(s) Being Assessed: Problem Solving

  • Criteria for Success: In this assignment, you will:
  • Identify a relevant economic concept and describe how it applies to the scenario.
  • Summarize the change in expenditures between budgets.
  • Record the ways in which economic trends impacted personal income and consumer prices.
  • Explain the rationale for budget decisions made in response to economic changes.
  • Explain an additional economic trend or change from within the last year and how it has impacted your personal life and finances.

What to submit/deliverables: A completed Assignment 1 template, in Word document form.

What is the value of doing this assignment? Economic trends and events in the world have real impacts on your daily life. This could take the form of a new technology that increases the demand for workers in a certain field, the amount of economic growth for a country affecting the ability (or willingness) of employers to increase wages, or even trade decisions between two countries that cause price of some everyday goods to fluctuate.

Economic impacts require you to make decisions on how to allocate resources and effectively budget, and use critical thinking strategies to help you navigate the world of finance and economics. Throughout the previous weeks of this course, you have learned foundational economic concepts, basic personal finance considerations, and problem solving strategies. In this assignment, you will apply all of these to help a friend communicate her budgeting decisions to her family.

Your goal for this assignment is to: Build your problem solving skill by articulating how economics have real impacts on families and their budgets. You will apply decision making and critical thinking strategies to explain how economics impacts a friend’s personal budget decisions.

Steps to complete: In Week 4, submit your assignment by following these steps:

STEP 1:Read the scenario in the TEMPLATE ATTACHED And preview the questions that follow.

Scenario: A friend who knows that you are learning problem solving skills and economics has come to you for advice. At the beginning of this year, rent and the price of imported food rose. At the same time, prices for domestic food dropped. The family’s income stayed the same, but because of these economic changes, they had to make changes to their yearly budget.

Your friend’s family is unhappy about the lifestyle changes that your friend has chosen. Your friend knows that you are studying personal finance and have asked you how to explain to her family what has happened to their spending. She has brought with her their family budget from last year, as well as their current budget for this year.

STEP 2: Identify one relevant economic concept that applies to the scenario and describe how it applies. (Question 1)

STEP 3: Summarize how expenditures changed between budgets. Make sure to address how expenditures changed (or did not change). (Question 2)

STEP 4: Describe the economic trends that created the need for a change in expenditures. Make connections to the economic concepts you have learned. (Question 3)

STEP 5: Explain the rationale for your friend’s budget decisions to her family. Address all changes (or non-changes) in expenditures and discuss long term effects. (Question 4)

STEP 6: Reflect on how changes in economic variables may impact your personal life and finances. (Question 5)

STEP 7: After completing all questions in the Assignment 1 Template, save your responses as a Word document titled: Your Name, ECO110_Assignment 1 Economic Impacts and upload to BB in Week 4. Make sure to also review the scoring rubric before submitting.

Assignment 1 Template: Impact of Economics on Daily Living

Scenario:A friend who knows that you are learning problem solving skills and economics has come to you for advice. They have brought their family’s budget from last year, as well as their current budget for this year. At the beginning of this year, rent and the price of imported food rose. At the same time, prices for domestic food dropped. Your friend’s family’s income stayed the same, but because of these economic changes, they had to make changes to their yearly budget. Budget 1 on the left shows how their family used to spend their income of $25,000. Budget 2 on the right reflects changes your friend made to the family’s budget based on economic changes.

Your friend’s family is unhappy about the lifestyle changes that your friend has chosen. They are having a difficult time explaining the reasons for some of the decisions they have had to made about family finances. Since they know that you are studying personal finance, they have asked you to help them come up with a way to explain to their family what has happened to their spending.

Answer the following questions based on the scenario and Budget 1 and 2:

1. In the first four weeks of this class you have learned about several economic concepts and how they impact daily living. Choose one economic concept from this list and explain how it is relevant to your friends’ budget situation:

Supply and demand


Tradeoff decisions

International trade

Opportunity cost

Compound growth

2. How did expenditures change between budgets? Which expenditures changed the most? Which expenditures changed the least? Which stayed the same?

3. What were the economic trends that created the need for your friend’s family to change their expenditures? What can you infer about the connection between prices and expenditures, based on the economic concepts you have learned?

4. Help your friend explain the rationale for their budget decisions to their family. For each expenditure change, describe why your friend made that decision and how it impacts the family overall. Also make sure to address expenditures that did not change. What are the long-term benefits/risks of these changes? Some questions you could help them answer are:

Why did your friend decide to buy less imported food, and more domestic food?

Why did your friend decide to use the furnace and air conditioning less?

Why did your friend decide to walk more?

Why did your friend not change the amount spent of education and family care?

Why did your friend decide to reduce savings, and what will the long-term effects of that be?

5. In our personal lives, we sometimes need to react to changes in our economic environment. Thinking about your own budget, describe how a change in an economic variable (such as a change in income, employment, interest rates, or prices) could impact your personal life and finances.

Miami Dade College Ice Campuses Supply and Demand Essay

Gordon Rule 1

Supply and Demand

Imagine that you have decided to open a small ice cream stand on campus called “Ice-Campusades.” You are very excited because you love ice cream (delicious!) and this is a fun way for you to apply your business and economics skills! Here is the first month’s scenario–you order the same number (and the same variety) of ice creams each day from the ice cream suppliers, and your ice creams are always marked at $1.50 each.

Use your knowledge of the factors that cause shifts in demand, i.e., change in – income, prices of related goods, taste, number of students, expectations

and in a multi-paragraph essay, provide at least three reasons why ice cream sales fluctuate in this manner. Apply only the factors you think are applicable to explaining this scenario.

Now assume that a month later, the school allows a competing student the right to sell ice creams on school property. (The number of students on campus remains largely unchanged.) What do you think will happen to the price of ice cream at your campus? Explain in detail

Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.

**REQUIRED READING**(Third question only)

3. In our discussion of employer discrimination, we learned that discrimination is costly for the firm in that it must give up some producer surplus or profit in order to indulge its taste for discrimination. Therefore, if the firm is operating in a competitive product market (i.e., there are many other firms with which it competes in selling its product), wouldn’t it be less likely to discriminate, seeing that its profits are already likely very low on account of its competition with other firms? In other words, wouldn’t it be less willing to sacrifice profit when its profits are already very low? This is the theme of some research I conducted in 2004 for an organization of the United Nations called WIDER (the World Institute for Development Economic Research in Helsinki, Finland). The research paper is attached. Your assignment is to summarize it. You needn’t describe the various details of the paper – simply summarize its main thrust (its theoretical underpinning, its empirical strategy, and its findings).
