There are one short answer question and 9 True/False questions. (Each correct answer is worth 0.8 points!) 1) In the graph, D is the market demand curve, MR is the marginal revenue curve, MC is the marginal cost curve, and ATC is the average total cost curve. The level of output that would minimize dead weight loss is 884 units. ( Write a number, NO EXPLANATION! ) The next questions are T/F questions! NO EXPLANATION! T / F 2) A monopoly firm produces an output level at which P = AC (price equals average cost). Then it must be the case that there is no deadweight loss. T / F 3) L = 1 for a monopoly firm. (at the profits maximizing price) [ Remember that L denotes the Lerner index of market power. ] T / F 4) In the short run competitive equilibrium P = MC for all firms.

    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.
