Quantity of Visits (Q)

Total Revenue (TR)

Marginal Revenue (MR)

Total Costs (TC)

Marginal Cost (MC)

Average Total Cost (ATC)

In a MS Word document, define total revenue (TR), marginal revenue (MR), and the profit-maximizing rule for a single investor-owned firm. Then calculate MR, MC, and ATC for Table 3.1. Next, give the profit-maximizing level of output (Q).

Now, assume the firm is a tax-exempt agency. One possibility is that tax-exempt agencies maximize output. Define the output-maximization rule and then give the output-maximizing level of output (Q) given Table 3.1. What happens to the supply curve for an output-maximizing firm if it increases the quality of their visits?

Check my calculation for MR, MC, ATC.

Total revenue (TR): It is the product of price and quantity
Marginal revenue (MR): Change in total revenue for a change in quantity
Profit-maximizing rule or output maximising is at a point where ATC is minimum and here it is at Q = 2
For the increase in quality of visits the supply curve would shift to right for an increase in demand because of increased quality.
The calculations are fine and a profit column is added in the above table.
