Unformatted text preview: maximizing quantity to produce where price equals the marginal cost of production for chairs is: MCC = PC 25 + 2QC = 90 2QC = 65 QC = 32.5. Profit when producing only chairs is: π = PCQC – (25QC + (QC)2 ) π = 90(32.5) – (25(32.5) + (32.5)2 ) π = 2,925 – 812.5 – 1,056.25 π = $1,056.25. Profit when producing neither benches nor chairs is zero: π = 0. Comparing profit when producing both benches and chairs, when producing only benches, when producing only chairs, and when producing neither benches nor chairs, Noah and Naomi should produce 50 benches and 0 chairs. 10. awar d: 5 out of 5.00 points On Friday, April 2, 1993, executives at Phillip Morris made a bold move, announcing a reduction of approximately 20 percent in the price of Marlboros.
