c. What is the magnitude of J.R.'s consumer surplus at the equilibrium price?
d. At the equilibrium price, how many ribs would Judy be willing to sell?
e. How high must the price of ribs be for Judy to supply 20 ribs to the market?
f. At the equilibrium price, what is the magnitude of total surplus in the market?
g. If the price of ribs rose to $10, what would happen to J.R.'s consumer surplus?
h. If the price of ribs fell to $5, what would happen to Judy's producer surplus?
