In order to find the market equilibrium set Qd= Qs which is equal to

 100 - 2P = 4P - 80

Subtracting 100 from both side you will get
- 2P = 4P - 80 -100
- 2P = 4p -180

Now subtracting 4P from both sides you will get
- 2P - 4P = -180
-6p = - 180

Dividing both sides by -6 you will get

-6/-6 P = -180/-6

P = 30 >>answer

If P= 30 then

Qs = 4(30)-80
=40 >>answer

Qd = 100 - 2(30)
=100 - 60
= 40

Qs = Qd which is 40 = 40

1. Suppose that the royalties received by an author for writing a college text are set at a rate of 15 percent of the publisher’s total revenue.

A. Demonstrate graphically that this creates an inherent conflict between the interests of a profit-maximizing publisher and those of a royalty-maximizing author.  [Hint:  Draw a graph with optimal price and output for both the publisher and author.]

b. As a student consumer, whose interests would you like to see prevail?

It seems to me that if you have such problems with math, you would not be disturbed by a good tutor. I also turned to the tutor. So I know what a good maths tutor in Essendon North is. You can try to go there, sure to help you. There really are very nice people who know math
