**julia**, Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 9:03pmDid you provide the all information? Because all you can do with the given information is to plug P=4 into the equation and find x, but x is quantity of CD demanded.

Consumer surplus is the difference between the max price a consumer willing to pay and the actual price they do pay.

So you do have the actual price they pay - $4, and you can find how many thousand of CDs is being sold, but you need to have (I believe) extra information, such as price consumers willing to pay.
