  2. How are the laws of supply and demand illustrated in this graph? Explain your answers.
  3. What is the equilibrium price and quantity in this market?
  4. Assume that the government imposes a price floor of $180 in the feeder market. What would happen in this market?
  5. Assume that the price floor is removed and a price ceiling is imposed at $90. What would happen in this market?
