Please answer #3e,f and g please.

3. Consider a competitive firm with total costs given by
TC(q) 10010q+ q?
The firm faces a market price p = 50
(a) Write expressions for total revenue TR and marginal revenue MR as functions of
output q
(b) Write expressions for average total cost ATC, average variable cost AVC, and
marginal cost MC as functions of output q
(c) For what value of output is ATC minimized?
1
(d) Find the profit maximizing level of output q. At this level of output, what are
TR, TC, ATC, and *?
(e) Graph the ATC, AVC, MC, and MR curves in a single graph, and indicate the
profit maximizing level of output. If there are profits, shade the region corre-
sponding to profit and label it.
(f) If fixed costs increase from 100 to 500, what happens to the profit maximizing
level of output, TR, TC, and ?
(g) If fixed costs increase from 100 to 500, should the firm continue to operate in the
short-run? What about the long-run?

Step 1

(e) The graph below shows the ATC, AVC, MC and MR curve for the competitive firm. Quantity corresponding to point A where P = MC that is 20 units is the profit-maximizing level of output. In the same graph, rectangle ABCD is the economics profit associated with the profit-maximizing output and is shaded in the graph below.

Step 2

(f) An increase in the fixed cost from 100 to 500 will not going to affect the profit-maximizing output as fixed cost is not going to affect marginal cost and hence will not going to affect profit-maximizing output. Since the output is the same, the total revenue of the firm will be the same as total revenue is the product of quantity produced and market price. This in...
