MC = 12 + (Q/20). (35/Q) + 12 + (Q/40) = 12 + (Q/20). Step 2: Solve for Q. Q = 37.43. Step 3: Compute ACmin at Q = 37.43. ACmin = (35/37.43) + 12 + (37.43/40). ACmin = 13.87. When there is free entry, long­run market supply is a horizontal line at: P = ACmin = 13.87. http://e z to.mhe c loud.mc gr a w- hill.c om/hm.tpx? todo= pr intvie wSingle 2/2...
