Marginal Cost Marginal cost is obtained by producing one more widget and the total cost that result from doing so and the formula for this calculation is MC=ΔTC/ΔQ. As the revenue and cost data shows (following page) that changing each widget by one at a time it is always divided by 1. Marginal cost increases as we increase production by one widget at a time, therefore going from zero to 15 widgets and increasing MC from $10 to $150 and is increasing by $10.
Profit Maximization When a firm determines that the greatest profit return is derived from returns determined by price and output level it will obtain profit maximization. In calculating one would use the formula TR/TC resulting in Profit Maximization’s largest gap between total revenue and total cost or MR/MC stating that marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost also reaching profit maximization. The revenue/cost data and data graph show profit
maximization using company “A”. The data above states that profit maximization is reached a seven and eight widgets and anything produced higher or lower can yield a loss. The data graph gives the same information showing us that the largest
