This is slightly economics related
The demand equation for a market is given by p(q + 3) = 15 and, for some constant α, the supply equation is q = αp − 1 where p is the price and q is the quantity. Given that the equilibrium price for this market is three, determine the equilibrium quantity and the value of α. Find the consumer and producer surpluses.
