22) y = 3x − 7. 17) (our demand and supply story) except different variables are used. It is easy to obtain the solution of this system. 22). It yields: 3x − 7 = −x + 5. So x = 3 is the solution to this equation. 23)), we get y = 2. Hence the solution to the above system is (x, y) = (3, 2). This method of obtaining the solution of the system of two linear equations involves eliminating the variable y by substituting y (expressed in terms of x and a constant) into y of the other equation. Hence it is called the method of elimination by substitution.

16 Comparative statics. Question Explain why the equilibrium price cannot stay the same if there is the change in the demand as explained above. Obtain the new equilibrium price. Solution If the price of apples stayed the same as the original equilibrium price, which is 4, there would be an excess demand (or a shortage) of apples. This leads apple buyers to bid the price up. Apple sellers who realise the shortage will also raise the price. e. until it reaches the new equilibrium price. The new system of equations is p =q +2 p = 14 − q 2 Substituting the second equation into the first one yields: 14 − q 2 = q + 2.

One exception is where b2 − 4ac = 0. In that case, the expression inside the square root is zero, and so x b collapses to x = − . The value of the two solutions is identical in this case. 2a The solutions of the quadratic equation are often referred to as roots of the equation. When b2 − 4ac = 0, we say that the equation has repeated roots. When b2 − 4ac > 0, we say that the equation has two (distinct) real roots. I will give you some examples. Question A Solve the following equation: x 2 − 2x + 1 = 0.
