In Figure 34 we have OP the fixed market price with MR = AR for the three types of firms. The cost structures of the firms are different. Let us begin with the first firm which is more efficient. Its Average Cost curve AC

Unformatted text preview: 1 passes from below the MR = AR curve. The point e1 marks its equilibrium position where MR = MC. The firm produces Q1 output. The Total Revenue of the firm is then, Similarly the Total Cost of producing this output is, TC = Output × Average Cost = OQ1 × Q1C1 = OQ1C1R 1 Therefore, Profit = TR - TC = OQ 1e1P -OQ1F1R = R1C1e1 P...
