I am having problems with this problem, please help

thank you


set 15-3P=1+4P. Solve for P (using algebra).

Plug in 1.5 for P in the supply and demand equations, What is Qd, what is Qs. Is there a surplus or shortage (hint: a shortage as quantity demanded exceeds quantity supplied). Repeat with 2.5 for P.
