Answer #1

A. D)10 -2Q

(Total revenue, TR = P*Q = (10-Q)*Q = 10Q - (Q^2). So, Marginal
revenue, MR = d(TR)/dQ = 10 - 2Q)

B. B)10- 4Q

(Total revenue, TR = P*Q = (10-2Q)*Q = 10Q - (2Q^2). So, Marginal
revenue, MR = d(TR)/dQ = 10 - 4Q)

C. B)400

Profit is maximised at the point where MR = MC by a firm with
pricing power

Total revenue, TR = P*Q = (1800-2Q)*Q = 1800Q - (2Q^2). So,
Marginal revenue, MR = d(TR)/dQ = 1800 - 4Q

MR = MC gives 1800 - 4Q = 200

So, 4Q = 1800 - 200 = 1600

So, Q = 1600/4 = 400

D. C)$1000

P = 1800 - 2Q = 1800 - 2(400) = 1800 - 800 = 1000

E. A)$160,000

Maximum price possible (when Q = 0) is P = 1800 - 2Q = 1800 - 2(0)
= 1800

Consumer surplus = (1/2)*(Maximum price-monopoly price)*(monopoly
quantity) = (1/2)*(1800-1000)*(400) = 160,000
