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.
