Question

Promoters of a major college basketball tournament estimate that the demand for tickets on the part of adults is given by Qad = 5,000 –10P, and that the demand for tickets on the part of students is given by Qst = 10,000 –100P. The promoters wish to segment the market and charge adults and students different prices. They estimate that the marginal and average total cost of seating an additional spectator is constant at $0.

a.For each segment (adults and students),find the inverse demand and marginal revenue functions.

b.Equate marginal revenue and marginal cost. Determine the profit-maximizing quantity for each segment.

c.Plug the quantities you found in (b) into the respective inverse demand curves to find the profit-maximizing price for each segment. Who pays more, adults or students?

d.Determine the profit generated by each segment, and add them together to find the promoter’s total profit.

e.How would your answers change if the arena where the event was to take place had only 5,000 seats?

Answer #1

a)

y Qad = 5,000 – 10P

P= 500 -(1/10)Q

TR= 500Q - (1/10)Q^2

MR = 500 - (1/5)Q

Qst = 10,000 – 100P.

P = 100 - (1/100)Q

TR = 100Q - (1/100)Q^2

MR = 100 - (1/50)Q

b)

Adult profit-maximizing output:

MR= MC

500 - (1/5)Q =0

Q = 500*5

= 2500

Student profit maximizing outut:

100 - (1/50)Q = 0

100 *50 = Q

Q = 5000

c)

Adult price:

P = 500 - (1/10)*2500

= 500 - 250

= 250

Student price:

P = 100 - (1/100)*5000

= 100 - 50

= 50

d)

Profit adult:

= 250*2500 - 0*2500

= 625000

Profit Student:

Profit = 50*5000 - 0*5000

=250000 - 0

=250000

e)

Qs +Qa = 5000

Qs = 5000 - Qa

500 - (1/5)Qa = 100 - (1/50)Qs

400 - (1/5)Qa = (1/50)(5000-Qa)

Qa =1666

Qs = 5000 -1666

= 3334

Promoters of a major college basketball tournament estimate that
the demand for tickets on the part of adults is given by Qad =

Assume the Carolina Cuckoos are a minor league, small town
baseball team. The demand for tickets to watch them play is: P = 40
- .005Q.
A. Write down the equation for the MR curve.
b) Depict demand and marginal revenue in a diagram. Label it
carefully. (Note: you can append the diagram images anywhere in the
file or send them separately).
C. Assume MC = 0, and that stadium capacity is unconstrained.

1 Revenue and Cost A student intern discovers the following
about the demand for attendance at a pro sports team’s games: P =
$180 – 4A where P is the ticket price, measured in dollars, and A
is their attendance measured in thousands of fans. Assume that
marginal cost is $20, and total cost is 20A.
a) Draw the attendance demand function.
b) Find the total revenue function and draw the curve on a
different graph (put price on the...

#1The manager of the party is considering whether to use uniform
pricing or two-part-pricing . Your willingness to pay for rides for
the party is P = 48 – (0.75)×Q, where P is the ticket price per
ride and Q is the number of rides. The amusement park has a
marginal cost of $5 for each additional rise. Its fixed cost for
handling the party is $20. Show all your work in an excel
spreadsheet.

1.A firm is a pure monopoly when:
a.it is the only seller of a unique product and barriers to
entry prevent other sellers from
entering the market in the long run.
b.it is the only seller of a product that has very few close

market in the long run is unrestricted.
c.there are only a few other very large firms selling similar
