Q P TC TR MR MC

1 60 18 60 60 18

2 58 20 118 58 2

3 54 24 162 44 4

4 48 30 184 22 6

5 40 38 200 16 8

6 28 50 168 -32 12

7 14 70 98 -70 20


i. Calculate MC and MR

ii. The quantity produced by the firm is optimal, when MR = MC. They are equal between 5 and 6 units produced. So, the optimal quantity is Q = 5 units.

iii. The firm's profits at Q = 5 is TP = TR - TC = 200 - 38 = 162.

iv. The average cost of the firm is ATC = TC/Q.

If Q = 5, then ATC = 38/5 = 7.6.

v. AC, AR, MR are downward-sloping curves, and MC curve is upward sloping after Q = 1.
