## (solution) Consider the market for laptop computers. The demand for laptops

Consider the market for laptop computers. The demand for laptops is Q=1800-3P. Suppose the supply of laptops is given by Q=-200+2P

1-What is the equilibrium price of laptops?

2-What is the equilibrium quantity of laptops?

3-What is the price elasticity of demand at the equilibrium price and quantity?

4-What is the price elasticity of supply at the equilibrium price and quantity?

5-for the next seven questions, suppose a per unit excise tax of \$80 per guitar is levied on the consumers.

6-What price will sellers receive after the tax is levied?

7-What price will consumers pay after the tax is levied?

8-What percent of the tax will be paid by the consumers of laptops?

9-What percent of the tax will be paid by the suppliers of laptops?

10-How many guitars will be sold after the tax is imposed?

11-How much consumer surplus do consumers get after the tax?

12-What is the deadweight loss created by this tax?

At equilibrium Demand (D) = Supply(S)

But D=Q=1800-3P and S=Q=200+2P

Therefore, 1800-3P=200+2P

1800-200=2P+3P

1600=5P

P= \$320

Equilibrium Quantity of laptops=

Q=1800-3P or...
