Specify the price and quantity of daffodils when the market clears (at equilibrium) on the
graph.
Attach a graph of supply and demand curves for daffodils and show the market clearing

Show the producer surplus and the consumer surplus on the graph and list the dollar
value of each here. CS = \$18 PS = \$18
Part 2
Suppose the government imposes a price floor (support) of \$7.50 on daffodils. Show the
price floor on a separate graph from the one for Part 1.
What legal quantity is actually transacted at the price floor? 4.5
What surplus quantity is likely to result? 3
What is the amount of producer surplus, consumer surplus and deadweight loss with the
price floor? PS = \$23.625 CS = \$10.125 DWL = \$2.25

Suppose the government imposed a tax of \$2.00 on daffodils and it is paid by the seller.
What is the new price that the consumer pays? Price that the producer receives?

Pp = \$5
Q=5

graph from Parts 1 &amp; 2.
What is the change in producer surplus due to the tax? The change in consumer surplus?
List amounts here and show on the Part 3 graph. ∆ CS = \$5.5
∆ PS = \$5.5
What is the revenue the government gains from the tax? \$10
How much is the deadweight loss? DWL = \$1
