7. A monopolist in the market for widgets is facing a demand curve P= 60 - Q. The marginal cost of producing Q units is equal to $Q. (a) Calculate the monopolist's profit maximizing price and quantity. Calculate producer, consumer, and total surplus, and deadweight loss. (b) The government wants to impose a price ceiling that will maximize the total surplus in the market. What price ceiling should the government set? What would be the new values of consumer and...
3. Monopoly Consider a situation where a monopolist faces the following inverse market demand curve 132 - 2a p and the following cost function TС — 12g + 2q* a) Derive the marginal revenue and marginal cost functions b) What are the equilibrium price and quantity if this market behaved as if it were competitive? c) Calculate the Consumer Surplus, Producer Surplus and Welfare levels under perfect petition d) What are the equilibrium price and quantity when the monopolist produces...
2. Consider a market where demand is given by Q = 60 – P and the marginal cost for every firm is $15. a. Assume the market is perfectly competitive. Find equilibrium price and quantity. Calculate consumer surplus, producer surplus, total surplus, and deadweight loss. b. Now assume that there is only one supplier in the market. Find equilibrium price and quantity. Calculate consumer surplus, producer surplus, total surplus, and deadweight loss. Is total surplus higher or lower compared to...
Consider a situation where a monopolist faces the following inverse market demand curve p= 100 – 4 and the following cost function TC = 4q+72 a) Derive the marginal revenue and marginal cost functions. b) What are the equilibrium price and quantity if this market behaved as if it were perfectly competitive? c) Calculate the Consumer Surplus, Producer Surplus and Welfare levels under perfect com- petition. d) What are the equilibrium price and quantity when the monopolist produces as a...
Suppose a profit-maximizing monopolist has total cost and marginal cost as follow. TC =8Q + 10 and MC = 8. It faces the demand curve P=20-1/5Q. What is the equilibrium price and output? What is the total profit? Calculate the consumer surplus, producer surplus, and deadweight loss if the firm acts as a monopolist. Illustrate your answer with a diagram. Calculate the consumer surplus, producer surplus, and deadweight loss if the firm acts as a perfectly price-discriminated monopolist. Illustrate your answer with a diagram.
1. Suppose that a single-price monopolist faces the demand function P 100 Q where I is average weekly household income, and that the firm's marginal cost function is given by MC(Q) 2Q. The firm has no fixed costs. = (a) If the average weekly household income is $600, find the firm's marginal revenue function. (b) What is the firm's profit-maximizing quantity of output? At what price will the firm sell that output? What will the firm's marginal cost be? (c)...
Part E-H Assume a profit-maximizing monopolist faces a market demand given by P = (12,000 – 90Q)/100 and long run total and marginal cost given by LRTC = 5Q + Q2 + 40 (Note: The answer to this question must be hand-written.): a) Find the equation of the marginal revenue curve corresponding to the market demand curve. b) Find the equation for the marginal cost function. c) Find the profit-maximizing quantity of output for the monopoly and the price the...
The cost curve for a typical perfect competitive firm in the coffee market is given by the following TC 128+4g+2q The market demand curve for coffee is given by the following P=84-2q (a) (i) Find the long run competitive equilibrium. That is, identify the equilibrium price and quantity, output for each firm, the number of firms in the industry and the level of producer and consumer surplus. Show your answer in a clear well-labelled diagram (ii) What is the value...
Consider the following market. Demand is given by 5- P where Qo is the quantity demand and P is the price. Supply is given by Qs- where Qs is the quantity supplied. a. What is the market equilibrium quantity and price? b Calculate consumer, producer and total surplus Depict your answer in a graph. c. Suppose the government imposes a price floor of P - 4. Calculate the consumer surplus, producer surplus, and deadweight loss. Depict your answer in a...
Suppose that market demand for a good is given by QD(P) = 10−P. The total cost of production is TC(Q) = 2Q2. Determine quantity QM and price PM that a monopolist will choose in this market. Calculate consumer surplus (CS), producer surplus (PS), and the deadweight loss (DWL) resulting from the monopoly. Graphical Solution would suffice! 1) (25 points) Suppose that market demand for a good is given by Q”(P) - 10-P. The total cost of production is TCQ) =...
