monopoly price and quantity?

Expert's answer

If p = 40 − 2q and C(q) = q2, then the monopoly quantity can be calculated at MR = MC, so:

MR = TR' = (p*q)' = 40 - 4q,

MC = C' = 2q,

40 - 4q = 2q,

6q = 40,

q = 6.67 units.

The monopoly price is p = 40 - 2*6.67 = $26.66.

MR = TR' = (p*q)' = 40 - 4q,

MC = C' = 2q,

40 - 4q = 2q,

6q = 40,

q = 6.67 units.

The monopoly price is p = 40 - 2*6.67 = $26.66.
