Step 1

Using just the beverage charge per unit:

MR= 71/3- (4/3)*Q , P =  71/3- (2/3)*Q

For MR=MC=\$2:

71/3 – (4/3)Q=2

Q= 25.667 *(3/4)=

Therefore, joint quantity and price are:

Q=19.25units

P= \$10.83

Step 2

b) Two-part tariff is a type of price discrimination, which a monopolist uses wherein the price of the good or service is composed of two types a lumpsum fee and a per-unit charge of beverage.

Step 3

Student demand: (MC=P)

P=8-Qs=2

Q2= 6 units , Maximum willingness to pay = \$8
