# 1. The demand and supply schedules for pop in Vancouver are as follows: Price (\$/pack of 2 bottles) Quantity demanded (thousands /week) Quantity supplied (thousands/ week) 2 280 0 3 240 30 4 200 60 5 160 90 6 120 120 7 80 140 8 40 160 9 0 180 a. (1) With the use of a demand and supply diagram, show the market equilibrium. b. (2) Now suppose that a fire destroys one-half of the pop producing factories. Supply decreases to one half shown in the above supply schedule. What are the new equilibrium price and quantity of pop? Show the new equilibrium in your diagram from part a). c. (1) Has there been a shift or a movement along the supply curve of pop in part b)? d.

Step 1

a. (1) The diagram below shows the pop market with DD as the demand curve and SS1 as the supply curve. Both the curve intersects each other at point E where the equilibrium quantity is 120 units whereas the equilibrium price is \$6.

Step 2

b. (2) One-half reduction of supply in the market due to fire leads to a new supply curve that is shown in the diagram below. A new supply curve SS1 will intersect the DD curve at new equilibrium point E1 where equilibrium quantity is Q1 that is equal to 75 units and equilibrium price is P1 which is equal to \$7.25 from the graph.

Step 3

c. (1) Fire that leads to a reduction in supply to one half leads to a shift in the sup...
