Problem Set 8 Suggested Solutions 1. Question 6, page 379 C=100+2Q 2 MC=4Q P=90-2Q MR=90-4Q a. Monopoly: MR=MC 90-4Q=4Q, 8Q=90 25 . 11 4 45 = = m Q Hence, 5 . 67 2 135 = = m P 125 . 353 375 . 759 25 . 11 ) 25 . 11 ( 2 100 ) 5 . 11 )( 5 . 67 ( ) 2 100 ( 2 2 - = = - - = + - = Π m m m m Q Q p Hence, 25 . 406 = Π m b. Perfect Competition: Marginal cost intercepts demand: 90-2Q=MC, 6Q=90, Q c =15. Hence P c =60, and Profit=\$350 in the short run and zero in the long run. c. 2. Question 8, page 379

You can assume that the information about marginal cost and marginal revenue are given. C 1 (Q 1 )=10Q 1 2 , MC 1 =20Q 1 C 2 (Q 2 )=20Q 2 2 , MC 1 =40Q 2 P=700-5Q, MR=700-10Q a. Only the total marginal cost is not given. Total marginal cost is the horizontal sum of the factories’ individual marginal cost. That is, you should add the quantities for a specific marginal cost. So, first solve the two MC equations for Q. Then add them to find an expression for Q T and MR. Finally solve this expression for MR. MC Q 20 1 1 = MC Q 40 1 2 = So, MC Q Q Q T 40 3 2 1 = = + .

### What students are saying

• 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.
