1 Problem 1 (22 points) : The market for product Q has many identical firms, each having the short-run total cost function: STC(q) = 900 + 10q + q 2 , where q is the firm’s annual output. We also know that the market demand curve for Q is given by: Q = 287.5 – 0.25P, where P is the market price. Each firm is currently earning zero economic profit. (a) Calculate numeric values for: (15 points.) (i) the market price, (ii) each firm’s output, (iii) the number of firms in the market. Since each firm is earning zero economic profit, we can find where P = SATC or min ATC. In either case: q = 30 and P = 70. This the yields the market level demand to be: Q = 287.5 – 0.25(70) Q = 270. Finally, the number of firm is given by: Number of firms = Q/q = 270/30 Number of firms = 9 (b) State the equation for the market-level supply curve. (7 points.) Each firm’s MC curve is given by: P = MC = 10 + 2q. We need to sum this equation across all 12 firms, but to do so, we need to state the equation in q- dependent form: q = – 5 + (1/2)P. Q = 9q = 9[– 5 + (1/2)P]

2 Problem 2 (10 points) : Dr. Holt has $30 per week available to spend as he wishes on goods A and B. The prices of A and B, the quantities of A and B he is now buying, and his evaluations of the utility provided by these quantities are as follows: Product Price per Unit Quantity Purchased (Units) Total Utility (Utils) Marginal Utility
