For complementary goods, an increase in the price of one decreases the demand for other, lowering the equilibrium price there. Thus, the relationship is downward-sloping 14. by de&nition 15. by de&nition Assignment 5 1. Pro&t-maximizing level of output: MR ( Q ) = MC ( Q ) 2. P & MC P = 1 j E d j : Substituting in values and rearranging gives P = 3 1 3 3. as discussed 4. as discussed 5. by de&nition 6. by de&nition 7. and 8. When a &rm achieves perfect price discrimination, it extracts all consumer surplus. as a result, it wants to maximize overall surplus and thus deadweight loss is eliminated 9.
