TR=110Q-5Q^2, TC=10Q-Q^2+0.33Q^3
a) The output rate that maximizes total revenue is in the point, where MR = 0. So, MR = TR' = 110 - 10Q = 0
Q = 11 units.
b) The output rate that minimizes average cost will be in the point, where ATC' = (TC/Q)' = 2Q - 2 = 0
Q = 1 unit.
c) The output rate that maximizes profit is in the point, where MR = MC, so:
MR = TR' = 110 - 10Q,
MC = TC' = 10 - 2Q + Q^2
So, 110 - 10Q = 10 - 2Q + Q^2
Q^2 + 8Q - 100 = 0
Q = (-8 + √464)/2
d) Equation for marginal revenue is MR = TR' = 110 - 10Q and average revenue AR = TR/Q = 110 - 5Q
e) Equation for marginal cost is MC = TC' = 10 - 2Q + Q^2 and average cost ATC = TC/Q = 10 - 2Q + 0.33Q^2.
