Epf3b equilibrium price

  1. 1. 3b Equilibrium Price<br />EPF 3. <br />Demonstrate knowledge of the price system<br />
  2. 2. Equilibrium Price<br />Markets exist when buyers and sellers interact. This interaction determines market prices and thereby allocates scarce goods and services. <br />Prices send signals and provide incentives to buyers and sellers. When supply or demand changes, market prices adjust, affecting incentives.<br />
  3. 3. What is a market?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  4. 4. Market<br />A market exists when buyers and sellers exchange goods and services<br />
  5. 5. How are market prices determined?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  6. 6. Market Prices Determined<br />Market prices are determined through the <br />buying and selling decisions made by buyers and sellers<br />
  7. 7. What is equilibrium price?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  8. 8. The equilibrium price of a good or service is <br />the one price at which quantity supplied equals quantity demanded. <br />Equilibrium Price<br />
  9. 9. How can a supply and demand graph be used to find equilibrium price?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  10. 10. Graphing Equilibrium Price<br />Equilibrium price and quantity are revealed on a supply-and-demand graph where the supply and demand curves intersect. <br />Equilibrium Price<br />
  11. 11. What happens when price for a good or service is higher than the equilibrium price?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  12. 12. Price is higher than Equilibrium<br />If the price is above the equilibrium price, <br />buyers will purchase less than is available, and suppliers will offer more, creating a surplus. <br />When a surplus exists, prices will decrease <br />until they reach the equilibrium price.<br />
  13. 13. What happens when price for a good or service is lower than the equilibrium price?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  14. 14. If the price is below the equilibrium price, buyers will want to buy more than is available, and suppliers will want to supply less. <br />This will result in a shortage. Buyers will bid the price upuntil it reaches equilibrium price.<br />Price Lower than Equilibrium<br />
  15. 15. How does the graph show what happens to the equilibrium price when one of the determinants of demand or supply changes?<br />Essential Question:<br />
  16. 16. When one of the determinants of <br />demand changes, the demand curve will <br />shift, resulting in a new equilibrium <br />price and quantity. <br />When one of the determinants of supply <br />changes, the supply curve will shift, <br />resulting in a new equilibrium price and <br />quantity<br />How Changes Affect the Graph<br />
