# For each supply equation in Exercises 45-48, where x is thequantity supplied in units of 1000 and p is the unit price in dol-lars, (a) sketch the supply curve, and (b) determine the numberof units of the commodity the supplier will make availablein the market at the given unit price. 1 2 x − 2 3 p + 12 = 0 ; p = 24

To determine

a)

To draw:

The supply curve.

Explanation

Given:

12xâˆ’23p+12=0

And,

p=24

Approach:

Substitute 0 for x in above mentioned equation in order to find the value of p.

12(0)âˆ’23p+12=0âˆ’23p+12=0p=12Ã—32p=18

So, the curve crosses at (0,18).

Substitute 0 for p in given equation in order to find the value of x

To determine

b)

To find:

The number of units of commodity the supplier will make available in market.
