2. You are given the individual demand curves for food for 2 households. These are household A and household B. The demand for household A for food is given by equation:
Qa= 1430  55p
The demand for food for household B is given by the equation:
Qb= 1470  70p
Where Qa= demand for food in kg by household A
Qb= demand for food in kg by household B
Calculate the market demand for food
