e cted Marginal Revenue will be: )Q , or 200 – (4/5)Q = 120. Q will equal (5/4)(200 – 120) or 100. The cost of producing 100 units will be 3000 + 120(100), which equals 15, evenue will equal 100(100) or 10,000. Profit will be 10,000 – 15,000 = -5,000. Total revenue will equal 175(100) or 17,500. Profit will be 17,500 – 15,000 = 2,500. 0 + 2,000 = 1,000. The variance of future profits will equal (1/5)(-5,000 - 1,000)2 + (4/5)(2,500 – 1,000)2 = 9,000,000.

C) for Acme. ntercept as ALC, but is twice as steep. Your first step here is to draw the MLC curve on this graph. Or, if you prefer algebra: VMP = 200 – ½ L; W = 20 + ½ L MLC = 20 + L Maximize profits where we have VMP = MLC 200 – ½ L = 20 + L L = (2/3)(180 = 120 W = 20 + ½ (120) = 80 Wage 200 Supply 150 100 50 Demand Labor 0 400 300 200 100 r L = 120.

Your firm’s cost function is C(Q) = 3,000 + 120Q. Demand will be LOW:
