the demand and production costs of its new DVD:

Total Revenue =1000Q - 10Q2

Marginal Revenue = 1000 - 20Q

Marginal Cost = 100 + 10Q

ii. 50 percent of the profits

iii. 150 cents per unit sold

iv. 50 percent of the revenue

For each option, calculate the profit-maximizing price and quantity. Which, if any, of
