# A monopolist (AT&T) is facing the following demand schedule P=24-3Q. That is, Q=0 implies P=24, then Q=1

implies P=21, and Q=2 implies P=18, and so one. Fixed costs will be neglected in this analysis. The marginal cost is constant and equal to 6 for every unit produced.

How do I find the quantity produced and the amount of maximum profits?

How do I find the Price and quantity to yield the efficient solution?
