Suppose the demand curve for a consumer for coffee is:Q = 6 – 2P,where Q represents the number of cups per day and P is the price of coffee per cup.
Question: Sppose the consumer is at coffee shop 2. Coffee shop 2 provides unlimited cups of coffee for the price of $9.00 per day.
- How many cups would she drink a day and how much would she spend a day at coffee shop 2? Explain your answer and illustrate it on the graph. Hint: Again, I would draw the demand curve and the incremental price of drinking a cup of coffee at the shop to show the number of cups the consumer chooses.
- What is the consumer surplus and the average price per cup?
