Question

Consider a firm with the demand function P(Q)=(50-2Q), and the total cost function TC(Q)=10,000+10Q. Find the profit maximizing quantity. Calculate the profit maximizing price (or the market price). Hint: MR(Q)=(50-4Q),

Answer #1

Profit-maximizing stage would be the equality of MR and MC.

Given, P = 50 – 2Q

TR = P × Q = 50Q – 2Q^2

MR = Derivative of TR with respect to Q

= 50 – 4Q

Given, TC = 10,000 + 10Q

MC = Derivative of TC with respect to Q

= 0 + 10

= 10

Now, MR = MC

50 – 4Q = 10

4Q = 50 – 10

Q = 40/4 = 10

By putting this value in the demand function we will get price

P = 50 – 2Q

= 50 – 2 × 10

= 50 – 20

= 30

Answer: quantity = 10 units; Price = 30

Consider a market in which the demand function is
P=50-2Q,
where Q is total demand and P is the price. In the market, there
are two firms whose cost function is
TCi=10qi+qi^2+25,
where qi1 is the quantity produced by firm i and
Q=q1+q2
Compute the marginal cost and the average cost.
Compute the equilibrium (quantities, price, and profits)
assuming that the firms choose simultaneously the output.

The market demand curve is P = 90 − 2Q, and each firm’s total
cost function is
C = 100 + 2q2.
Suppose there is only one firm in the market. Find the
market
price, quantity, and the firm’s profit.
Show the equilibrium on a diagram, depicting the demand function
D (with the vertical and horizontal intercepts), the marginal
revenue function MR, and the marginal cost function MC. On the same
diagram, mark the optimal price P, the quantity Q,...

Let the demand function of natural monopolist be Q = 50 - 5P and
the cost function be TC = 10 + 2Q. Here TC represents total cost, P
represents price and Q is quantity. What is the average cost and
total profit of the natural monopolist in the selected energy
market?

Guthrie Medical has a total cost function TC(q) = 100 + 50q +
10q^2, so that the marginal cost is MC(q) = 50 +20q. The price of
medical care is currently P=90.
What is the quantity that Guthrie Medical will choose to
produce?
At that quantity, what is the average total and average variable
cost for Guthrie? (Hint: ATC(q) = TC(q)/q)
Can Guthrie operate in that market in the long term? What about
the short term?
Guthrie would like to...

The following equations describe the monopolist’s demand,
marginal revenue, total cost and marginal cost:
Demand: Qd = 12 – 0.25P | Marginal Revenue: MR = 48 – 8Q | Total
Cost: TC = 2Q^2 | Marginal Cost: MC = 4Q
