Step 1

In the aforementioned diagram, the downward sloping demand curve (D) and the marginal revenue (MR) curve are most important tools to determine the quantity of units produced and price charged by equating the marginal revenue curve with the marginal cost curve where the consumers’ willingness to pay (Price) will be determined by MR = MC and the ‘D’ curve. Thus, here, to maximize the profit 50 units will be produced at price \$13.

Now, determine total revenue (TR) by multiplying price and quantity, i.e.,

TR = Price * Quantity

= \$13 * 50

= \$650

Step 2

The total cost can be determined by multiplying minimum of ATC (Average Total Cost) with its respective quantity, i.e.,

TC = ATC * Q

= \$9 * 85

= \$765

Similarly, TVC (Total Variable Cost) is the product of AVC (Average Variable Cost) and Q (Quantity), i.e.,

TVC = AVC * Q

= \$6 * 70

= \$420

Further, TC = TFC + TVC, i.e.,

TFC = TC - TVC

= \$765 - \$420

= \$345

Step 3

In the short-run, there would be a loss in this market as TR < TC, i.e., \$650 < \$765. Hence, there is a loss of around \$115. However, the firm must not shutdown during this time period as in the long ...
