10 Supply and Demand Practice Questions - Question 1
Here are 10 supply and demand practice questions that come from old GRE Economics tests. Included are full answers for each question. Enjoy!

Question 1: If the demand and supply curve for computers are:

D = 100 - 6P, S = 28 + 3P

where P is the price of computers, what is the quantity of computers bought and sold at equilibrium.

----

Answer: We know that the equilibrium quantity will be where supply meets, or equals, demand. So first we'll set supply equal to demand:

100 - 6P = 28 + 3P

If we re-arrange this we get:

72 = 9P

which simplifies to P = 8.

Now we know the equilibrium price, we can solve for the equilibrium quantity by simplying substituting P = 8 into the supply or the demand equation. I'll substitute it into the supply equation:

S = 28 + 3*8 = 28 + 24 = 52.

Thus the equilibrium price is 8, and the equilibrium quantity is 52.
