1. As you now know, graphs and graphics on this Jiskha site is near impossible. I don't understand your graph at all.

That said: Consumer surplus is represented by the AREA below the demand curve but above price. A tax would raise, vertically, the supply curve by the amount of the tax. This leads to a new price. What is the numeric area change in consumer surplus?
