Key HW #2 1. a) At Q=12, P = -2*12+40 = 16 so TR = 192. At Q = 15, P = -2*15+40 = 10 and TR = 150 b) elsasticity = 2 1 13 10 16 5 . 13 15 12 - = - - c) Since demand is inelastic, then decrease in price should decrease total revenue, which it does. 2. a) BB 20 hockey 12 b) 10*12 +6*20 = 240 so on budget.

This makes price of BB = 10 and price of hockey = 20. BB 24 hockey 12 (12,6) 3. a) Acct profit = 5500*7 10000 = 28500 Econ Profit = 5500*7 10000 (100000)*(.05) 1250*20 = -1500 <0 so get out b) i) No change accounting. Increase economic by 3000 to 1500. ii) Accounting decreases by 2500 to 26000. Economic ends up increasing by 2500 to 1000...
