Analyze the two following situations for firms in competitive markets:
a. If TC = 100 + 15q, then the minimum price necessary for this firm to produce any output in the short run is P = AVC, AVC = (TC - FC)/q, so P = AVC = 15q/q = 15.
b. If MC = 4q and the perfectly competitive firm maximizes profits by producing 10 units of output, then the profit maximizing price is P = MR = MC = 4q = 4*10 = 40.
