First, let’s show that whenever arrange the FOC to see that: unconstrained solution that . Re - () ⏟ ( ) From the envelope theorem we know that: Since we are looking at unconstrained solution we see that in cases B and D that: As such, the FOC becomes: ⏟ ( ⏟ ) ⏟ ⏟ ⏟ 30 ECO 204 Chapter 16: Analysis of Firms with Market Power (this version 2012-2013) University of Toronto, Department of Economics (STG).
