Q = -59,000,000 + 500,000P - 125,000PL

Where Q is cases supplied per year, P is the wholesale price per case ($), PL is the average price paid for unskilled labor ($), PK is the average price of capital (in percent), and W is weather measured by the average seasonal rainfall in growing areas (in inches).
A. Determine the industry supply curve for a recent year when PL = $8, PK = 10 percent, and W = 20 inches of rainfall. Show the industry supply curve with quantity expressed as a function of price and price expressed as a function of quantity.
