Find producer's surplus at the market equilibrium point if supply function is

p=0.5x+17 and the demand function is

p= 292.5/(x+10)

0.5x2+22x+170 =292.5

x2+44x+340-585=0

x2+44x-245=0

x2+49x-5x-245=0

x(x+49)-5(x+49)=0

(x+49)(x-5) =0

QE  =5

PE = 19.5

Producers surplus = pEqE ā integral 0.5q+17  between 0 and 5

Consumers surplus =Integral 292.5 /(q+10) between 0 and 5 - pEqEĀ­

Producers surplus = 19.5 *5 ā (q2/4+17q) between 0 and 5

= 97.5 ā(25/4+85)= 97.5 -91.25 = 6.25

Consumers surplus = 292.5 ln(q+10) between 0 and 5 -97.5

=292.5 ln (15/10)-97.5

=118.5985-97.5= 21.0985

How did you get 0.5x^2+22x+170=292.5? (Sorry, I am retarded when it comes to math)

When 0.5x+17 = 292.5/(x+10) by equating the equilibrium price.

I took the supply function from your "paid"
