Question

10. Suppose a perfectly competitive firm has the following total cost function: TC = 10 + (0.1 ∗ q^2). The market demand is given by Q = 100 – 10p. If p = 10, the firm's profits will be

A) 240.

B) 250.

C) 260.

D) -10 because the firm will shut down.

Answer #1

**OPTION D i.e., -10 as the firm will shut
down**

**SOLUTION****:**

**Given,**

**Q = 100 - 10p**

=> **Q = 100 - (10 x 10) [given p= 10]**

**=> Q = 0**

**Also given,**

**TC = 10 + (0.1 * Q^2)**

**=> TC = 10 + (0.1 * 0^2)**

**=> TC = 10 + 0**

**=> TC = 10**

**The market demand is also denoted as price in perfect
competition.**

**So profit of firm**

**= Price/demand - Total cost**

**= 0 - 10**

**= -10**

**Hence, the firm's profit is -10.**

**Also, the firm will shut down as there is no demand for
its products in the market**

Suppose a representative perfectly competitive firm has the
following cost function: TC = 100 + 5Q2. The short-run
market demand and supply are given by: QD = 600 - 40P
and QS = 20P. How many firms are in the market in the
short-run?

consider a firm operating a perfectly competitive industry and
suppose that this firm's total cost function is: TC=10+2q+5q^2. if
p=12, which of the following statements is correct:
a) The firm is making profits
b) total revenue of this firm is 2
c) total cost of this firm is 17
d) none of the other answers

The total cost function for each firm in a perfectly competitive
industry is TC(y)=100+8y^2 . Market demand is q=2000-(market price)
.
Find: the long run equilibrium firm quantity (y), market
quantity (q), amount of firms, and price.

Suppose a firm operates in a perfectly competitive market where
every firm has the same cost function given by: C(q)=5q2+q+20
Suppose the market price changes. Below what price will this
firm shut down? (what is the "shut-down price").
Sandboxes are produced according to the following cost
function:
c(q) = q2 + 100
where the fixed cost of 100 represents an annual license fee the
firms pay. Every firm uses the same technology to produce sanboxes.

1) A perfectly competitive firm that sells fish has a marginal
cost function given by MC = 3q. The market has determined a price
of P = 60. How many fish will this firm produce?
2)See the previous question about the perfectly competitive fish
firm. Suppose that at this level of output, the firm has average
costs of production of ATC = 42. How much total economic profit
will the firm earn?
3) A perfectly competitive firm will shut down...

Suppose that each firm in a perfectly competitive market has a
short-run total cost of TC = 99 + 100Q –
6Q2 + 4Q3 . What is the
firm's shutdown price?

1. Suppose a perfectly competitive firm has a cost function
described by TC = 200Q + Q^2 + 225 Each firm’s marginal revenue is
$240. a. Find the profit maximizing level of output. b. Is this a
short-run or long-run situation? How do you know? c. Assuming that
this firm’s total cost curve is the same as all other producers,
find the long-run price for this good.

A perfectly competitive firm’s total cost function is given
by: TC = 400+4Q^2 . The minimum point of average total cost (ATC)
is reached at Q=10. You also know that the market demand function
for this product is: QD=100-P. How many firms are in the market in
the long-run? (Hint: first you need to find the price in the
long-run)
Select one:
a. N=6
b. N=4
c. N=2
d. None of the above

A perfectly competitive firm’s total cost function is given by:
TC = 200+2Q2 . You also know that the market demand
function for this product is: QD=100-P. How many
firms are in the market in the
long-run?
Select one:
a. N=10
b. N=8
c. N=6
d. None of the above

The total cost function for a firm in a perfectly competitive
market is TC = 350 + 15q + 5q2. At its profit maximizing
quantity in the short-run, each firm is making a loss but chooses
to stay open. Which of the following is/are necessarily true at the
profit maximizing quantity?
MR = 15 + 5q
P>15
AR > 350/q + 15 + 5q
Both A and B are true.
Both B and C are true.
All of the above...
