 Question 146117: The function S=5000 +200x and D= 9500 -100x express the supply S and the demand D respectively, for a popular CD brand as a function of its price x in dollars. Graph the functions on the same coordinate system. What happens to the supply as price increases? What happens to demand as price increases? The price at which supply and demand are equal is called equilibrium price. What is the equalibrium price? Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)
