# <br/><br/>Suppose that a monopolist faces a demand curve of P = 3000 -2

Q, where P = price and Q = quantity of the goods produced. It is also known that the monopolist faces a constant marginal cost (MC) of 400.

I.Based on the equation above, construct the monopolist's total revenue (TR) and marginal revenue (MR) equations. [4 points]

II.Find the equilibrium price and quantity that will optimize the monopolist's profit. [3 points]

III.If it is assumed that there is no fixed cost (FC = 0), use the information above to derive the monopolist's variable cost (VC). Also, find themonopolist's operating profit (TR -VC). [3 points]

IV.Show your answers using the relevant graph. [3 points]

V.Use the above information to fill in the table below.

VI.What conclusion can you derive from the table above?
