3. Award: 10 out of 10.00 points Suppose that the total benefit and total cost from a continuous activity are, respectively, given by the following equations: B(Q) = 100 + 36Q – 4Q 2 and C(Q) =80 + 12Q. (Note: MB(Q) = 36 – 8Q and MC(Q) = 12.) Instructions: Use a negative sign (­) where appropriate. a. Write out the equation for the net benefits. N( Q ) = 20 + 24 Q + ­4 Q 2 b. What are the net benefits when Q = 1? Q = 5? Net benefits when Q = 1: 40 Net benefits when Q = 5: 40 c. Write out the equation for the marginal net benefits. MNB(Q) = 24 + ­8 Q d. What are the marginal net benefits when Q = 1? Q = 5? Marginal net benefits when Q = 1: 16 Marginal net benefits when Q = 5: ­16 e. What level of Q maximizes net benefits? 3 f. At the value of Q that maximizes net benefits, what is the value of marginal net benefits? 0 References Worksheet Learning Objective: 01­06 Apply marginal analysis to determine the optimal level of a managerial control variable.

    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.

    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.
