Unformatted text preview: MR is the derivative of the Revenue function MR = 290 6q MC is the derivative of the Cost function MC = 74 Set 290 6q equal to 74 and solve for q 290 6q = 74 216 = 6q q = 36 d. (2 pts) What is the largest profit possible? When q = 36, total Revenue is 290(36) 3(36) 2 When q = 36 total Cost is 1975 + 74(36) = \$4,639 = \$6,552 So, when q = 36, Profit = \$6,552 - \$4,639 = \$1,913...
