receives a total of $21 worth of producer surplus. Nick must be selling his cakes for

a. $2 each.

b. $7 each.

c. $8 each.

d. $10 each.

i can't figure this question out.

Producer surplus is price (P) less the minimum price the producer would be willing to sell ($3). So you know

3*P - $9 = 21. Ergo, P=$10.

Note: this assumes the $3 cost includes the amount Nick pays himself for his labor
