Expert Answer

Step 1

The equilibrium in the market is obtained at the intersection of the demand curve and the supply curve. The demand curve and the supply curve intersected at the point where the price level in the economy is determined to be $1.75 and the equilibrium quantity demanded and supplied equal to be 700. The imposition of tax caused the demand curve to shift and the new demand curve which shifted downwards intersects with the supply curve at the price point of $1.25 and the equilibrium quantity of 500.

Step 2

The tax was determined to be $0.75 which means that the beverages will be supplied to buyers at a price of the determined $1.25 along with the tax which equals $2. The amount that the seller receives from the sale of beverages is equal to 1.25 and thus, the tax paid by the student snack bar can be calculated by subtracting the money received by the snack bar after tax from before tax revenue which can be calculated as follows:
