With the quota, do you mean "NO more than 50"?
Without the quota, the equilibrium price and quantity would be where supply=demand or (500p)=(300+p)  solve or p. I get p=100, ergo Qd=Qs=400.
If more than 50 must be sold, no problemo. If no more than 50, and the quota is enforced, then price will go to 450 and some lucky sellers will make a bundle.
