Consider the following functions for a firm selling solar power units. TR = $5,000Q - $3.9Q^2MR = $ 5,000 - $7.8Q

TC = $100,000 + $1,160Q + $2.5Q^2

Slope of the AC curve = -100,000Q^(-2)+2.5

MC= $1,160 + $5Q

a) Calculate the equilibrium price and output for this firm as a monopolist (show workings).

b) Using the same total revenue and total cost functions calculate the long run equilibrium price and output if this firm was a monopolistically competitive firm with a differentiated product (show workings).
