If the supply curve for aspirin is perfectly elastic, then a reduction in demand will cause the equilibrium price to (increase, decrease, stay the same) and the equilibrium quantity to (increase, decrease, stay the same)
question
increase ; stay the same
If the demand curve for a life-saving medicine is perfectly inelastic, then a reduction in supply will cause the equilibrium price to ( increase, decrease, stay the same) and the equilibrium quantity to (increase, decrease, stay the same)
question
a change in supply
A change in price of a good or service typically causes a (change in quantity demanded or supplied; change in demand or supply) for that specific good or service.

The ____________ is the quantity where quantity demanded and quantity supplied are equal at a certain price.
question
excess
If the price is below the equilibrium level, then the quantity demanded will exceed the quantity supplied. This is known as (excess, surplus ) demand.
