Three firms compete in Cournot competition in a market where the inverse demand function is P(q1, q2, q3) = 50 − q1− q2− q3. Each has per-unit cost 10 and zero fixed cost. They simultaneously choose quantities. What is the Nash equilibrium quantity for firm 3? Round your answer to three decimal places.

Let A = firm 3's profit in the Cournot equilibrium.

Now suppose that the firms form a cartel, i.e., they act as a monopoly and split the profit evenly. If the total quantity produced by the cartel is Q, then the inverse demand is P(Q) = 50 - Q.

Let B = firm 3's profit in the cartel.

Calculate C = B - A. Round your answer to 3 decimal places.

In this case, C = B-A = 133.333-100 = 33.33 Therefore... View the full answer
