It is the area under the WTP curve for the given level. (ex would be the blue + green area for consumption level q)  Willingness to pay is the demand curve  The general equation for a demand curve is Qd=intercept-slopeP  Inverse demand curve is P=intercept/slope-(1/slope)Qd  Aggregate demand curve is the horizontal summation of the demand curves of all the people typically grouped by geographical region. How to aggregate a demand curve: Write out equations for both and add: Alice: Qd=10-2P Bruce:Qd=5-p Aggregate demand: Qd=15-3p Inverse of which is P=5-1/3Q  Benefits are measured by willingness to pay  Therefore total ben
