1 Econ 1101 Practice Questions about Monopoly Congratulations! You have just invented a software program that eliminates all email spam and does your laundry as well. You have obtained a patent on the software which will give you a monopoly for 20 years. You have hired a Ph.D. economist to estimate the demand curve for your new product and the results are tabulated in columns one and two in the table below. (a) Fill in the column labeled "Revenue." Use only whole numbers and don't include any units (just the number.). Q P Revenue Marginal Revenue 0 6 0 6 1 5 2 4 3 3 4 2 5 1 6 0 (b) The marginal revenue between Q=0 and Q=1 is dollars (this is the difference in revenue between Q=0 and Q=1). The marginal revenue between Q=1 and Q=2 is . The marginal revenue at Q=1 is . (This is the midpoint of the two previous numbers.) Fill in the marginal revenue at Q=1 in the table above. (c) Plot marginal revenue in the graph below. Use the rule from class (which works when

Use the information from the graph to fill out the rest of the marginal revenue column in the table. (d) Revenue is maximized at a quantity of units where price is dollars and marginal revenue is dollars. (e) Suppose your ATC = MC = \$2 for all Q . Plot your MC in the graph below. 2-6-5-4-3-2-1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 D Q \$ (f) The profit-maximizing monopoly quantity is where MR = MC. Using this rule, the monopoly quantity is units. (g) The monopoly price is dollars. (h) The monopoly profit is dollars. (i) Illustrate the monopoly profit in your graph. (j) Fill in the table below. Illustrate the change in total surplus in the graph above. Label it DWL (for dead weight loss of monopoly). Competition Monopoly Change (moving from competition to monopoly) Q P CS PS TS...
