2) A company is considering building a bridge across a river. The bridge would cost $2 million to build and nothing to maintain. The following table shows the company's anticipated demand over the lifetime of the bridge:
Price per Crossing Number of Crossings, in Thousands
$8 0
7 100
6 200
5 300
4 400
3 500
2 600
1 700
0 800

a. If the company were to build the bridge, what would be its profit-maximizing price? Would that be the efficient level of output? Why or why not?
Q2. what do they mean efficienty level of output? I think a & b are asking the same things which I think the efficient level of output which will make the company earn profit.

c. If the government were to build the bridge, what price should it charge?
