14. Which of the following correctly describes a monopoly that has an economic break even?

Group of answer choices

At the output where MR = MC, the ATC curve is tangent to the demand curve.

At the output where MR = MC, the ATC curve dips below the demand curve.

At the output where MR = MC, the ATC curve is entirely above the demand curve.

At the output where MR = MC, the AVC curve is tangent to the demand curve.

At the output where MR = MC, the AVC curve is entirely above the demand curve.

15. The supply curve of a perfectly competitive firm is a portion of which curve?

Group of answer choices

marginal cost

average total cost

average variable cost

average fixed cost

total variable cost

Homework Answers

Answer #1

Ans 14: The correct option is: At the output where MR = MC, the ATC curve is tangent to the demand curve.

Break even means Total Revenue = Total Cost or zero profit. So, when the above condition is fulfilled, the monopoly is said to be break even.

Ans 15: The correct option is: Marginal cost

In short run, for a perfectly competitive firm, the region of marginal cost curve that lies above the average variable cost curve is considered to be the short run supply curve for a perfectly competitive firm. This is because if prices goes below minimum of AVC, then firm will shut down itself.

21. A monopolist's demand curve is the same as the marginal revenue curve for the product. Group of answer choices True False In the long-run equilibrium, both the perfectly competitive firm and the monopolistically competitive firm produce the output at which MR = MC and charge a price equal to the average total cost of production.

19. To maximize profits, a single-price monopolist will produce where Marginal costs = Marginal revenue: establishing a price that is greater than their marginal cost. True False 20. As a consequence of the perfectly competitive firm producing the quantity of output at which: price equals marginal revenue and marginal cost, it will achieve "allocative efficiency" in the deployment of societies scarce resources. True False 21. In the "long-run," the perfect competitive achieves technical efficiency and the firm will produce at:...

In a figure, illustrate the case of a monopoly that is incurring an economic loss. Label the price the monopoly charges as P and the quantity the monopoly produces as Q. A perfectly competitive industry becomes a single-price monopoly and the industry’s costs do not change. Are consumers better or worse off with this change? Is society better or worse off with the change? Support your answers by drawing one figure that compares the price and quantity produced when the...
