Textbook Problem

In Problems 17-26, *p* and C are in dollars and *x* is the number of units.

If the demand function for a product is

To determine

**To calculate:** The Consumer’s Surplus under pure competition for a product whose demand function is approximated by

Explanation

**Given Information:**

Demand function is approximated by

Supply function is

**Formula used:**

According to the Consumer’s Surplus:

If the demand curve has equation *x*-axis from 0 to

**Calculation:**

Consider the demand function:

Since, to know the equilibrium point:

Now equate both the equations,

Simplify further for the value of *x*,

And

Substitute
