The demand and supply functions of a good are given by: P= -3QD + 60 P = 2Qs + 40 respectively (a) If the government decides to impose a tax of £t per good, show that the equilibrium quantity is given by: Q = 4 – 1/50 and write down a similar expression for the equilibrium price. [4 marks] (b) If it is known that the equilibrium quantity is 3, find the value of t. How much of this tax is paid by the firm? [3 marks] (c) If, instead of imposing a tax, the government provides a subsidy of £5 per good, find the new equilibrium price and quantity. [3 marks]

EXPERT ANSWER Given, Demand equation, P = 60 – 3Qd and Supply equation, P = 2Qs + 40 In equilibrium, demand = supply Thus, 60 – 3Q = 2Q + 40 which gives Q = 4 and P = 48 (a) We know, the government imposes a tax of $t per unit. Therefore, new supply equation becomes: …

3. Wooden joists are used to support a floor load of 6.95kPa exclusive of its own weight. The joists will have an effective span of 4.25m and be placed at 0.40m on centers. Weight of wood is 7.5kN/m2 A. Design the wooden joists so as not to exceed the allowable bending stress of 10.35MPa. B. Design the wooden joists so as not to exceed the allowable shearing stress of 0.85MPa. C. Design the wooden joists so as not to exceed the allowable deflection of 10mm. E=12135 MPa Hint: In designing joists (not beam) please follow next page for market size of joist. Also, in the design you have read the problem carefully. If the problem states to design economically then you have to consider the stress if it did not mention economically then go for conservative design.
