Find the coefficients a , b , and c such that f I 1 M = 1, f I 2 M = 1.2, and f I 3 M = 1.5. ± 7. Find where the minimum value of e xx 3 + x occurs for 0 £ x £ 5. Plot the function and check you have found a minimum. ± 8. Define a linear demand function such that the demand at price p = 10. is a quantity q = 2000. and such that the demand has an elasticity at this price of Ε = ¶ q ¶ p p q = 2.5. ± 9. Assuming the above demand and a constant, but unspecified, marginal cost mc, write down the condition that should be satisfied for a monopoly firm supplying this demand at a price p to be profit maximizing. ± 10. Suppose that p = 10. is in fact the profit maximizing price. Determine what the marginal cost of the firm must be....
