Step 1

a) Since price-supply equation is linear , so we can use two-point form of equation by taking points (800,4) and (600,2)  to find the equation  as shown below help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseРа - Ра (х-х,) p- Pi = х, — х, 4- 2 (х-800) p- 4 = 800 – 600 200р - 800%- 2х —1600 200р %3D 2х — 800 р3D0.01х—4 fullscreen
