Score ______ / 30 + 4 Chapter 14 Use the following to answer questions 4-6. Figure: Monopolist 4. Based on the demand curves for a monopolist's product in two different markets—Market A and Market B—what price should the monopolist charge in Market A? What is the quantity sold in this market? What about price and quantity in Market B? (2 pts) Market A: P = $10; Q = 90 (1 pt.) Market B: P = $9; Q = 130 (1 pt.) 5. How much profit is the monopolist making in Market A, Market B, and in total? (3 pts) Market A: (10 x 90) - (5 x 90) = 900 - 450 = $450 (1 pt.) Market B: (9 x 130) - (5 x 130) = 1170 - 650 = $520 (1 pt) Total: Market A Profit + Market B Profit = 450 + 520 = $970 (1 pt) 6. If the monopolist were to charge a uniform price of $10 in both markets, what would be the monopolist’s total profit? Show your work. [Hint: the quantity demanded in Market B is 97.5 when the price is $10] (2 pts) Total Profit = Profit A + Profit B Profit = [(10 x 90)-(5 x 90)]+[(10 x 97.5)-(5 x 97.5)] = 450 + 487.5 = $937.50 (2 pts, - 1 if one mistake, - 1/2 no work)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
