Hi, can you upload the graph?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I can't; I have tried everything I can think of to paste the graph into this area and can not. To decribe the graph: Price is on the x axis ranging 2-20; the y axis is quantity ranging from 10-80. supply and demand curve with equilibrium at 8 and 40. Other points are 10 &20; 4.5 & 20. Hope this helps some. Thanks
