Question

1) Suppose a firm faces the following demand curve: q(p) = 100,000– 7,250p and it costs them $5 to make each unit of their product and their fixed costs are $15,000.

(show your work)

a. What price will the firm charge? *Round your answer to the
nearest 2 decimal places.*

b. At that price found in #25 what quantity will they produce?
*Round your answer to*

* the nearest whole
unit.*

**c.** What are the break-even prices? *Round
your answers to the nearest two decimal*

* places.*

**d.** What is the highest profit they can make?
*Round your answer to the nearest dollar*.

Answer #1

Total cost of production =5q+15000 = 5*(100000-7250p)+15000

a) Profit, W = Total revenue - total cost

W = pq- (5*(100000-7250p)+15000) = p*(100,000– 7,250p) - (5*(100000-7250p)+15000)

To maximize W

dW/dp = 0

dW/dp = 100,000– 14500p + 36250 = 0

14500p =63750

p= 9.40

**Price = $9.4**

b) Quantity = 100000-7250*9.4 = 31850

c) Let breakeven price = p

Total revenue = total cost

p*(100,000– 7,250p) = 5*(100000-7250p)+15000

7250p^2 -136250p +515000 = 0

p =5.24 and 13.55

**Break even prices are 5.24 and 13.55.**

d) highest profit = profit at price 9.4

Profit = 9.4*31850-31850*5-15000 =**$125140**

Suppose a firm faces the following demand curve: q(p) = 10000 -
800p Also the varaible cost per unit is $5 and the fixed cost is
$10000. The firm will charge a price of $8.75
1. What will the profit be at a price of $8.75
2. What is the price elasticity of demand?
3. At what price will an increase in price lead to revenue
falling instead of rising.

Draw a graph for a CwDP firm which faces a demand curve showing
Q=0 at P=$12, and Q=8 at P=$8, a SRMC curve which interests MR at
Q=8, and SRATC=$6 at Q=8.
What level of output should this firm produce?
At that output would the firm make a profit, or loss?
How much per unit and in total?

A monopolistically competitive firm faces the inverse demand
curve P = 100 – Q,and its marginal cost is constant at $20. The
firm is in long-run equilibrium.
a.Graph the firm's demand curve, marginal revenue curve, and
marginal cost curve. Also, identify the profit-maximizing price and
quantity on your graph.
b.What is the value of the firm's fixed costs?
c.What is the equation for the firm's ATC curve?
d.Add the ATC curve to your graph in part a

1. Suppose a firm faces the following demand for its output q: q
= 100 – 10p, where p represents the price it receives per unit
sold. Assume this firm marginal cost is MC = 4. The level of output
at which this firm maximizes its profit is______ . (NOTE: write
your answer in number format, with 2 decimal places of precision
level; do not write your answer as a fraction. Add a leading zero
when needed.) The price charged...

A monopoly firm faces a demand curve given by the
following equation: P = $500 - 10Q, where Q equals quantity sold
per day. It's marginal cost curve is MC = $100 per day. Assume that
the firm faces no fixed cost. Provide an explanation of the
results.
How much will the firm produce?
How much will it charge?
Can you determine its profit per day?
Suppose a tax of $1000 per day is imposed on the firm? How will...

A monopoly firm faces a demand curve given by the following
equation - P = $500 - 10Q, where Q equals quantity per day. Its
marginal cost curve is MC = $100 per day. Assume that the firm
faces no fixed cost. Please answer each question
mathematically.
a). Now suppose a tax of $100 per unit is imposed. How will this
affect the firms price?
b). How would a $100 per unit tax affect the firms profit
maximizing output per...

The firm is considering an expansion project with estimated
fixed costs of $100,000, depreciation of $15,000, variable costs
per unit of $60, and an estimated sales price of $80 per unit.
Ignore taxes. What is the accounting break-even quantity?

A monopoly firm faces a demand curve given by the following
equation: P = $500 − 10Q, where Q equals quantity sold per day. Its
marginal cost curve is MC = $100 per day. Assume that the firm
faces no fixed cost. You may wish to arrive at the answers
mathematically, or by using a graph (the graph is not required to
be presented), either way, please provide a brief description of
how you arrived at your results. Excel please!!!...

A monopolist faces a demand curve given by P = 70 – 2Q where P
is the price of the good and Q is the quantity demanded.The
marginal cost of production is constant and is equal to $6. There
are no fixed costs of production.
A. What quantity should the monopolist produce in order to
maximize profit?
B. What price should the monopolist charge in order to maximize
profit?
C. How much profit will the monopolist make?
D. What is...

1Suppose the firm is a monopolist. It faces a downward-sloping
demand curve, P(Q). If it also has non-negative marginal cost, will
it choose a quantity on the demand curve where the price elasticity
of demand is less than, greater than, or equal to -1? Explain.
2. Now, consider what will happen if a firm has exactly one
competitor in the market. Both firms have identical technologies
and cost structures (assuming a constant marginal cost may be
helpful), and each chooses...
