TC=10Q^2+50, MR = 10
a) calculate total revenue function
For a perfectly competitive firm MR = MC = P, so P = MR = MC = 10 and TR =
P*Q = 10Q
b) find or determine the OPTIMAL LEVEL OF OUTPUT or profit maximization output
Profit maximization output is in the point, where MR = MC = P.
MC = TC' = 20Q
MR = 10, so:
20Q = 10
Q = 0.5 units
c) calculate the maximum profit or loss at optimal level of output
Maximum profit will be: TP = TR - TC = P*Q - 10Q^2 - 50 = 10*0.5 - 10*0.25
- 50 = 5 - 2.5 - 50 = -$47.5
