The following equation gives Jane's linear demand curve for visits to a nearby national park.  Q is the number of visits per week and P represents the price of a pass (price per visit):    P = -0.5Q + 10

a) Describe the demand curve given by (1), with price (P) on the vertical axis and quantity (Q) on the horizontal axis.

b) Suppose passes cost $5.  What is Jane's economic surplus for all the visits she makes at this price? 

c) Explain, in your own words, what economic surplus is.
