Question details

6. The supply of wheat is given by the following equation: 9. where Ow is the quantity of wheat supplied, in mil- lions of bushels; Pw is the price of wheat per bushel; Pc is the price of corn per bushel; and P, is the price of tractor fuel per gallon. a. Graph the inverse supply curve when corn sells for $4 a bushel and fuel sells for $2 a gallon. What is the supply choke price? b. How much wheat will be supplied at a price of 10 $4? $8? c. What will happen to the supply of wheat if the price of corn increases to $6 per bushel? Explain intuitively; then graph the new inverse supply carefully and indicate the new choke price Suppose instead that the price of corn remains $4 but the price of fuel decreases to $1. What will happen to the supply of wheat as a result? Explain intuitively; then graph the new inverse supply. Be sure to indicate the new choke price. d.
