    I always hate these questions because textbooks/teachers never go through how to do them. With some number crunching I did:
    18 * 6 = 108
    18 * 10 = 180

    180-108 = 72(000) - Remember, it's 180000-108000.

    I chose these values as they correspond to the £18 figure in the question.

    I recently found it on a post on one of the TSR threads
    Also, hope you don't mind me asking..

    ^for the essay question 26, if I was talking about the the for side- leaving it to mark forces.. What would you include?

    Is it that the increase in Demand (from people buying too much) would cause Price to increase.. people would ration, this signals to producers that there is a shortage in supply and price is high, incentive to supply to that market and encourages more firms to supply as high profit is available?

    Thank you so much in advance

    Well I did (quantity supplied-quantity demanded) x price.

    So (10000-6000) x 18
    =4000 x 18
    =£72000

    Why did you choose the quantity and supply at £14? Or am I missing something?

    No I chose the quantity of supply at £18 (which was 10000) and the quantity demanded at £18 (which was 6000) and took 6000 away from 10000 which gave me 4000. Then I multiplied £18 by 4000 which gave me £72000
