Question

Explain why profit-maximizing monopolist produces at the quantity that has the price elasticity of demand larger than unity. Illustrate your answer with a diagram.

Answer #1

Explain why profit-maximizing monopolist produces at the
quantity that has the price elasticity of demand larger than unity.
Illustrate the answer with a diagram.

Explain why a profit-maximizing monopolist
will not set price in the inelastic portion of the demand
curve.

A profit-maximizing monopolist will never operate in the portion
of the demand curve with price elasticity equal to
a.
-2.5
b.
-1.5
c.
-1.25
d.
-.5
e.
Not enough information to be determined

Consider a monopolist facing a market demand given by
p=100-2q
Where p is the price and q is the quantity, the monopolist produces
good according to the cost function c(q)=q^2 +10
A determine the profit-maximizing quantity and the price the
monopolist will offer in the market
B calculate the profits for the monopolist
C calculate the deadweight loss due to a monopoly. Illustrate
this in a well-labelled diagram.

Consider a monopolist facing a market demand given by:
P = 100 – 2Q
Where P is the price and Q is quantity. The monopolist produces
the good according to the cost function c(Q) = Q2 +
10.
Determine the profit-maximizing quantity and price the
monopolist will offer in the market
Calculate the profits for the monopolist
Calculate the deadweight loss due to a monopoly. Illustrate
this in a well labeled diagram.

2- Do you think the monopolist acts as profit maximizing ( price
, cost ) ? illustrate your answer with graph

Consider a monopolist facing a market demand given by
P = 100 - 2Q
where P Is the price and Q is the quantity. The monopolist
produces the good according to the cost function
c(Q)=Q2+10
(a) Determine the profit maximizing quantity and price the
monopolist will offer in the market
(b) Calculate the profits for the monopolist.
(c) Calculate the deadweight loss due to a monopoly. Illustrate
this In a well labelled diagram.

Consider a monopolist. If the demand it faces is Q=pɛ, what is
the elasticity of demand? If marginal cost is $1 and the price
elasticity of demand is -2, what is the profit-maximizing
price?

Model the profit maximizing decision of a monopolistic landlord
and the effect of price control regulation. Assume that the market
demand for the rental properties supplied by the monopolist is
given by the equation below. QD = 40 - 3P The monopolist's marginal
cost = Q. Upload your supply and demand diagram showing the
following:
The monopolist's profit maximizing price and quantity?
The deadweight loss?
The price cap?

A monopolist faces the demand for its product: p = a - bQ. The
monopolist has a marginal cost given by c and a fixed cost given by
F. Answer the following questions, while showing all of your
derivation steps. Just providing final answer does not warrant any
mark.
2-a) Assume that F is sufficiently small such that the
monopolist produces a strictly positive level of output. What are
the profit-maximizing price and quantity?
2-b) Compute the maximum profit for...
