QUESTION 1 (quantity supplied) Suppose that every firm in a given market has the same cost structure, described as follows: MC = 20 + .5Q VC = 20Q + .25Q 2 FC = 900 TC = 900 + 20Q + .25Q 2 If the market price is 60 , then how many units will each firm choose to supply? A) 60 B) 70 C) 80 D) 90 E) 100

QUESTION 2 (profits) Suppose that every firm in a given market has the same cost structure, described as follows: MC = 20 + .5Q VC = 20Q + .25Q 2 FC = 900 TC = 900 + 20Q + .25Q 2 The market price is 60 , so each firm chooses to produce 80 units. How much profit does each firm get? A) 600 B) 700 C) 800 D) 900 E) 1000

answer to question 2 Suppose that every firm in a given market has the same cost structure, described as follows: MC = 20 + .5Q VC = 20Q + .25Q 2 FC = 900 TC = 900 + 20Q + .25Q 2 The market price is 60 , so each firm chooses to produce 80 units. How much profit does each firm get? Π = P × Q TC Π = 60 × 80 [900 + 20(80) + .25(80) 2 ] Π = 4800 – 4100 Π = 700 A) 600 B) 700 C) 800 D) 900 E) 1000

answer to question 2, continued Suppose that every firm in a given market has the same cost structure, described as follows: MC = 20 + .5Q VC = 20Q + .25Q 2 FC = 900 TC = 900 + 20Q + .25Q 2 P = 60 PS = (.5)(80)(40) PS = 1600 Π = PS – FC Π = 1600 – 900 Π = 700

QUESTION 3 (average total cost) Suppose that every firm in a given market has the same cost structure, described as follows: MC = 20 + .5Q VC = 20Q + .25Q 2 FC = 900 TC = 900 + 20Q + .25Q 2 P = 60 Q S = 80 Which is the correct average total cost function? A) 20/Q + .5 B) 20Q + .5Q 2 C) 900/Q + 20 + .25Q D) 880 + 19.5Q + .25Q 2 E) 900 + 20 + .5Q
