Customer Question
Suppose that the supply function for honey is p=S(q)=0.3q+2.7, where p is the price in dollars for an 8oz container and q is the quantity in barrels. Suppose also that the equilibrium price is $4.50 and the demand is 2 barrels when the price is $6.10.
Find an equation for the demand function, assuming it is linear.

Hi,
Thanks for using Justanswer!
Suppose that the supply function for honey is p=S(q)=0.3q+2.7, where p is the price in dollars for an 8oz container and q is the quantity in barrels. Suppose also that the equilibrium price is $4.50 and the demand is 2 barrels when the price is $6.10.
Find an equation for the demand function, assuming it is linear.
Solution:
Let us find the demand when price is $4.50
since equilibrium price is $4.50 so supply and demand at that price will be equal.
Put p = 4.5 in p=0.3q+2.7
4.5 =0.3q+2.7
4.52.7 = 0.3q
1.8 = 0.3q
q = 1.8/0.3 = 6
Now we have demand is 2 barrels when the price is $6.10 and also demand is 6 barrels when the price is $4.5.
slope = (4.56.10)/(62) = 0.4
demand equation will be
p6.1 = 0.4(q2)
p6.1 = 0.4q+0.8
p = 0.4q+6.9
demand function will be p =D(q) = 0.4q+6.9
Answer:
p =D(q) = 0.4q+6.9
I hope it will help you.
