If the firm can practice perfect price discrimination, how many units will a. Solve for the firm's inverse demand curve: P = 2 1.25 Q . Next, solve for marginal revenue = 25 2.5 Q . Set MR = MC and solve for Q: 25 2.5 Q = 2.5 Q Q = 5 P = 25 1.25(5) = \$18.75 b. Set P = MC: 25 1.25 Q = 2.5 Q Q = 6.67 63 6 Figure 10.12 Reference: Ref 10-21 (Figure 10.12) Complete the following table.
