Supply or Demand Equation
Determine if the given equation is a supply or demand equation 16x+13p=1040
A)Supply Equation
OR
B)Demand Equation

For supply equations, find the minimum price for which there will be any supply.
For demand equations, find the maximum price that can be charged and the maximum demand.
(Type 0 if it does not apply.(Even though 0 might not be the answer.))
Minimum price=__________
Maximum demand=__________
Maximum price=_________

Well, what have you done on this and what do you know about it? I presume you have seen some "supply" and "demand" equations before. What distinguishes them?

actually I figured it out. This is what I got---

Minimum price= 0
Maximum demand= 65
Maximum price= 80

Correct. It's been a long timne since I took economics, but one thing I do remember is that if price goes up demand goes down, which is exactly what happens with this equation.
