The demand and supply schedules for sunscreen at a small beach are shown below.

Market for Sunscreen

Price (dollars per bottle)          Quantity of Sunscreen Demanded (bottles)   Quantity of Sunscreen Supplied (bottles)

\$35      1,000   8,500

30        2,000   7,000

25        3,000   5,500

20        4,000   4,000

15        5,000   2,500

10        6,000   1,000

If the price is \$15 per bottle, how many bottles of sunscreen are demanded and supplied?

Qd =   bottles

Qs =  bottles

In this case, there would be upward pressure on the price.

What is the equilibrium price and quantity in the market for sunscreen?

P =

Q =  bottles

The market for ice cream bars on a hot day at the local beach is summarized in the table below.

1.60     280      140

1.80     250      180

2.00     220      220

2.20     190      260

2.40     160      300

2.60     130      340

There is a surplus in a market for a product when

Multiple Choice

quantity demanded is greater than quantity supplied.

demand is less than supply.

quantity demanded is less than quantity supplied.

the current price is lower than the equilibrium price.

Use the following graph for the milk market to answer the question below.

In this market, the equilibrium price is ____ and equilibrium quantity is ___

Multiple Choice

\$1.50 per gallon; 30 million gallons.

\$1.50 per gallon; 28 million gallons.

\$1.00 per gallon; 35 million gallons.

\$28 per gallon; 150 million gallons.

In competitive markets, a surplus or shortage will

Multiple Choice

cause changes in the quantities demanded and supplied that tend to intensify the surplus or shortage.

cause changes in the quantities demanded and supplied that tend to eliminate the surplus or shortage.

cause shifts in the demand and supply curves that tend to eliminate the surplus or shortage.

never exist because the markets are always at equilibrium.

Use the following table to answer the question below.

Price per Unit  Quantity Demanded per Year            Quantity Supplied per Year

\$5        2,000   0

10        1,800   300

20        1,400   900

25        1,200   1,200

30        1,000   1,500

beach towel production is both allocatively and productively efficient.

beach towel production is not allocatively efficient but is productively efficient.
