    Okay: to find the equilibrium point, you need to find where the two lines intersect. That means that: \[p1 = p2\]\[3q/100 + 4 = q/100 + 6\]\[q/50 = 2\]\[p = 3*100/100 +4 = $7\]\[p = 100/100 +6 = $7\]

    how did you get q/50=2

    subtract q/100 from both sides, you get 2q/100 = 2, or q/50 =2

    price is $7 (I just checked the quantity (q=100)) against both equations
