Your Assignment: Complete the tables below by printing this page and then calculating total market demand and total market supply.  It is strongly suggested that you take some graph paper and plot demand and supply curves for this market.  It is not absolutely necessary to plot the graphs to answer the questions, but it is a very useful exercise to make sure you understand the concepts.

(Moodlerooms at HFCC).   TIP: Keep this sheet for when you work on Unit 3.  The Unit 3 worksheet uses the same data.

    For the Demand Side’s table, it results that the higher the price, the lower the total market supply. Contrariwise, for the Supply Side’s table it results that the higher the price, the higher the total market supply.
