Once again assume that the demand and supply equations of a product of a seller are the same as those in example 5: qd = 40 − 2p and qs = −20 + 4p, respectively. Also assume that the government gives a subsidy to the seller of $3. What will be the new equilibrium price and quantity? How much of the subsidy is passed to the buyer and how much of the subsidy is retained by the seller?

Therefore, the system is a nonlinear system of equations. As a specific example, consider the simple system x2 + x + 2 = 2y and 4x + 5 = y. tex] Job No: 5640 UMMER: Basic Mathematics for Economics, Business and Finance Page: 22 1–68 Review of basics 23 first equation. The resulting expression will be x2 + x + 2 = 2 (4x + 5) or x2 + x + 2 = 8x + 10 or x2 − 7x − 8 = 0. The last expression is a quadratic equation. 3, we can resort either to factorization or to the quadratic formula to find the solution of this equation.

How much of the per unit tax is borne by the buyer and how much of the per unit tax is borne by the seller? Show the initial and the new equilibrium positions with the help of a figure. Solution. In the last example we saw that the original equilibrium price and quantity were p∗ = $10 and q∗ = 20 units, respectively. Two points must be noted here. First, an excise tax affects the supply equation only. Second, the price the seller receives after a tax of $3 per unit of the product will be p − 3. Therefore, the new supply equation will be qst = −20 + 4(p − 3) = −32 + 4p.
