 A demand function is a function that
represents a demand curve. The demand
function shows us the exact relationship
between price and quantity demanded.
Demand functions are also just shorthand
ways of representing both a demand curve
and a demand schedule. . When we have a
demand function, we can actually plot a
demand curve AND find points on the
demand schedule.
A supply function is a function representing
the exact relationship between price and
quantity supplied. Supply functions are also
shorthand representations – they can be used
to find both supply curves and to find points
in a supply schedule.
With the supply and demand functions, we
have easy ways of representing sellers’ and
buyers’ intentions in a market. These
functions are also handy to have for finding
equilibrium outcomes in a market. Rather
than visually having to scope out exactly
where quantity supplied equals quantity
demanded on a demand and supply schedule
or on a market graph, we can find exact
equilibrium outcomes using demand and
supply functions and a little bit of algebra.
Let’s consider the market for wheat.
Measuring quantity in millions of bushels,
suppose we have a market demand curve that
is given by:
QD = 50 – 2P
 The following table shows some points:
When price = Quantity demanded =
$10 per bushel 30 million bushels
$8 per bushel 34 million bushels
$6 per bushel 38 million bushels
$4 per bushel 42 million bushels
$2 per bushel 46 million bushels
 The supply curve for the wheat market is
given by
QS = -6 + 12P
This is normal for a supply function – they
usually don’t start at the origin point of the
graph, but up a bit on the price axis.
 The following table shows some points:
When price = Quantity supplied =
$10 per bushel 114 million bushels
$8 per bushel 90 million bushels
$6 per bushel 66 million bushels
$4 per bushel 42 million bushels
$2 per bushel 18 million bushels
 QD = 50 – 2P, QS = -6 + 12P
E = (Qd = Qs)
 50 – 2P = -6 + 12P
 50 + 6 – 2P = 12P
 56 = 12P + 2P
 56 = 14P
 P = $4 per bushel wheat
 QD = 50 – 2P
 QD = 50 – 2 ($4)
 QD = 50 – 8 = 42 million bushels of wheat
Qs = -6 + 12P
Qs = -6 + 12 ($4)
Qs = -6 +48 = 42 million bushels of wheat
Number 1
 Demand equation: Qd = 100- 2P
 Supply equation: Qs = -20 + 4P
Find out the equilibrium quantity and price.
Number 2
The demand and supply equations are the
following:
 Qd = 400 – 20P Qs = - 200 + 10P
Find out the equilibrium quantity and price.
 Number 3
Demand and supply in a market are described
by the equations
Qd = 66-3P
Qs = -4+2P
Find out equilibrium quantity and price.
 The demand and supply functions of a good
are given by
Qd = 110-5P
Qs = 6P
 (i) Find the inverse demand and supply
functions
Qd = 110-5P
5P = 110-Qd
P = 110-Qd/5
Qs = 6P
P = Qs/6
(ii) Find the equilibrium price and quantity
Solve simultaneously:
Qd = 110-5P
Qs = 6P
At equilibrium Qd = Qs
110-5P = 6P
Collect the terms
-5P-6P = -110
1P = 110
P = 110/11
P = 10
Solve for Quantity
Qd = Qs = 6P = 6(10) = 60 = Q
Suppose supply and demand functions of a
good are given by:
Demand function: Qd = 920 – 8P
Supply Function: Qs = -120 + 2P
(i) Calculate Equilibrium price and quanity
(ii) Calculate excess demand when price 90$
(iii) Calculate excess supply when price 105 $
(iv) Calculate the profit made on the black
market if a price ceiling of $ 65 is imposed.
Use the data below and answer the following
questions.
Quantity of
Peanuts

(i) What is the marginal utility of peanuts and
beans at each level of Quantity?
(ii) If the price of peanut is $1 for each and
the price of beans is $2 for each. John wants
to makes his maximizes his utility, and he has
$10 to spend on it. How much quantity of
peanuts and beans; he will buy to get
maximum satisfaction?
Q.2 Suppose that price of Good X is $2 and for
Good Y is $1. Consumer has 10$ to spend on
it.
Combination Good X Good Y
A 1 12
B 2 8
C 3 5
D 4 3
E 5 2
(1) Calculate Slope of the indifference curve
and slope of the budget constraint for Good X
and Good Y by using above data.
(ii|) Draw the graph of indifference curve and
budget constraint curve by using above data.
Q.3 There are two goods, X and Y, and marginal
utility from each is as shown below. If income is
$9 and prices of X and Y are $ 2 and $1,
respectively.
I. What quantities of good X and Y will you
purchase to maximize utility?
II. Calculate the total utility of Good X and Y at
each level of output.
III. Assume that, other things are remaining
unchanged; the price of X falls to $1, what
quantities of good X and Y, will you purchase to
maximize utility.
IV. Using above two prices and quantities of good
X, draw the demand curve. Comment on your
graph.

 Q.4 Suppose a consumer only buys two goods: hot dogs
and hamburgers. The price of hot dogs is $1, the price of
hamburgers is $2, and the consumer's income is $20.
 (a) Plot the consumer's budget constraint and measure the
quantity of hot dogs on the vertical axis and the quantity of
hamburgers on the horizontal axis. Explicitly plot the points
on the budget constraint associated with the even
numbered quantities of hamburgers (0, 2, 4,6….)
 (b) Suppose the individual chooses to consume six
hamburgers. What is the maximum amount of hot dogs that
he can afford? Draw an indifference curve on the figure
above that establishes this bundle of goods as the
optimum.
 (c) What is the slope of the budget constraint? What is the
slope of the consumer's indifference curve at the optimum?
