A) Socially efficient occurs at the point P = MCE + MCI

300-5Q = 8Q + 14Q

300 = 27Q

Q = 11.11 units

B) A competitive output is where P = MCI

300-5Q = 14Q

300 = 19Q

Q = 15.8 units

C) Monopolist produces at the point MR = MCI

300-10Q = 14Q

300 = 24Q

Q = 12.5 units

D) Impose a tax on production equal to marginal external cost of 8 dollars for every unit of output produced.
