How to determine supply and demand equilibrium equations

Let us suppose we have two simple supply and demand equations

  • Qd = 20 – 2P
  • Qs = -10 + 2P

To find where QS = Qd we put the two equations together

  • 20-2P = -10 + 2P
  • 20+10= 4P
  • 30/4=P
  • P = 7.5

To find Q, we just put this value of P into one of the equations

  • Q = 20 – (2×7.5)
  • Q= 5
