Assume that the market is currently as shown in the graph on the left (i.e., price of $8). What is true of the number of firms? A. There are currently 30 firms in the industry, and that number will remain stable until there is a change in demand or in technology. B. There are currently ten firms in this industry, and that number will remain stable until there is a change in demand or in technology. C.

There are currently ten firms in this industry, and that number is likely to increase in the near future. 13. Which ordering best describes how a perfectly competitive industry would respond to a sudden increase in popularity of the product?

Longrun market equilibrium will be at a lower quantity and higher price than before the surge in popularity. 14. Refer to the figure on the right.
