1. Start by drawing supply and demand curves and solve for an equilibrium price and quantity. Now draw in the quota. Dead weight loss will be the triangle area which is:
a) to the right of the quota
b) under demand, and
c) above supply

you may need to use some basic algebra/geometry to numerically solve.
