Qd = 52.50 - 2.0P + 0.015M + 7.0PR
Qs = -500.0 + 8.0P

Where: Qd is quantity demanded per month, Qs is quantity supplied per month, P is price of good A,M is average household income, and PR is the price of a related good R. Assume the following values of the variables: M = \$42,500, and PR = \$30.
