FINDING PRODUCER SURPLUS USING VARIABLE COST MC = 6 + Q VC = 6Q + .5Q 2 P = 10, Q = 4 VC = 6(4) + .5(4) 2 = 24 + 8 = 32 Producer surplus is revenue minus variable cost PS = P × Q VC = 40 32 = 8

PRODUCER SURPLUS AND PROFIT Producer surplus is revenue minus variable cost PS = P × Q VC Total cost is variable cost plus fixed cost TC = VC + FC VC = TC FC PS = P × Q (TC FC) PS = P × Q TC + FC Profit is revenue minus total cost Π = P × Q TC So. .. PS = Π + FC or Π = PS FC If there is no fixed cost, PS = Π
