pbms 27-29 Multiple Choice Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. ____ 1. Suppose that the duopolists Carl and Simon in Problem 1 face a demand function for pumpkins of Q = 16,400 – 400P, where Q is the total number of pumpkins that reach the market and P is the price of pumpkins. Sup- pose further that each farmer has a constant marginal cost of $1 for each pumpkin produced. If Carl believes that Simon is going to produce Q s pumpkins this year, then the reaction function tells us how many pumpkins Carl should produce in order to maximize his profits. Carl’s reaction function is R C ( Q s ) = a. 8,000 – . b. 16,400 – 400 Q s . c. 16,400 – 800 Q s . d. 4,000 – . e. 12,000 – Q s . ____ 2. If the inverse demand for bean sprouts were given by P ( Y ) = 940 – 5 Y and the total cost of producing Y units for any firm were TC ( Y ) = 40 Y and if the industry consisted of two Cournot duopolists, then in equilibrium each firm’s production would be a. 90 units. b. 45 units. c. 30 units. d. 60 units. e. 47 units. ____ 3. Suppose that two Cournot duopolists serve the Peoria-Dubuque route, and the demand curve for tickets per day is Q = 170 – 2 p (so p = 85 – ). Total costs of running a flight on this route are 850 + 10 q , where q is the number of passengers on the flight. Each flight has a capacity of 80 passengers. In Cournot equilibrium, each duopolist will run one flight per day and will make a daily profit of ____ 4. Suppose that the market demand curve for bean sprouts is given by P = 1,280 – 4 Q , where P is the price and Q is total industry output. Suppose that the industry has two firms, a Stackleberg leader and a follower. Each firm has a constant marginal cost of $80 per unit of output. In equilibrium, total output by the two firms will be ____ 5. There are two firms in the blastopheme industry. The demand curve for blastophemes is given by p = 4,500 – 4 q . Each firm has one manufacturing plant and each firm i has a cost function C ( q i ) = q 2 i , where q i is the out- put of firm i . The two firms form a cartel and arrange to split total industry profits equally. Under this cartel arrangement, they will maximize joint profits if

    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.
