1. In Key West Florida, one of the hottest monopoly bars to be seen at is Captain Tony's Saloon which is open every day from 7 P.M. to 2 A.M. Tony's total cost function for making and serving drinks is tc = \$2*X, where X is the number of drinks. A slew of economists are in town living it up at the Red Roof Inn. Suppose that a group of them (affectionately known as the "Wild Bunch" and numbering 100) has persuaded Captain Tony to open his saloon exclusively for them from 5 P.M. to 7 P.M one night. Suppose that each member of the Wild Bunch has a demand function for drinks x = 12-2P (P is the per unit price of a drink) for that night. On a graph, illustrate the Wild Bunch's demand curve; Captain Tony's marginal revenue curve; and Captain Tony's marginal cost curve. What is the profit maximizing number of drinks and price charged per drink to these rowdy economists? How much profit does Tony make? Calculate consumers’ and producer’s surplus and dead-weight loss.

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.
