Questions:

Construct a graph showing supply and demand in the electronic dog feeder market, using Microsoft Excel.

How are the laws of supply and demand illustrated in this graph? Explain your answers.

What is the equilibrium price and quantity in this market?

Assume that the government imposes a price floor of \$180 in the feeder market. What would happen in this market?

Assume that the price floor is removed and a price ceiling is imposed at \$90. What would happen in this market?

Now, assume that the price of feeders drops by 50%. How would this change impact the demand for feeders? Explain your answer and reconstruct the graph developed in question one to show this change.

Assume that incomes of the consumers in this market increases. What would happen in this market? Explain your answer and reconstruct the graph developed in question one to show this change.
