Partial equilibrium and surplus, Macroeconomics

The city of Cabernet is very famous for its production of wine. The inhabitants of the city have an aggregate demand for wine that can be described as follows:

D(p) = Qd =150-2p

where Qd is the demanded quantity in bottles of wine and p is the price in euros per bottle. The producers' aggregate supply is:

S(p) = Qs =13p-15

where Qs is the supplied quantity in bottles of wine. The city produces only one quality of wine.

a) Find the equilibrium price and quantity.

b) Compute the consumer and producer surplus, as well as the total welfare in the city of Cabernet.
