1) The firm produces such quantity, at which MR = MC, so:

10 + 0.08Q = 20 + 0.04Q,

0.04Q = 10,

Q = 250 units.

2) The price at which the firm produces is found from the demand curve.

MR = 20+0.04Q, so the demand equation is P = 20 + 0.02Q = 20 + 0.02×250 = 25.

3) The total cost is:

TC = 50+10Q+0.04Q^2 = 50 + 10×250 + 0.04×250^2 = 5050.

Total variable cost is TVC = 10Q+0.04Q^2 = 5000,

and total fixed cost is TFC = 50.

4) The firm need to produce at P > AVC to avoid from closing its operations.
