Step 1

A.

The profit maximizing output in the market of monopoly will be determined at the intersection of the marginal cost and the marginal revenue curves of the firm. In this case, the quantity and per unit price as well as marginal cost are given. The total revenue of the firm can be calculated by multiplying the price with the respective quantity. This can be calculated as follows:

Step 2

The marginal revenue can be calculated by dividing the change in total revenue with the change in the quantity as follows:

Step 3

Thus, the total revenue and marginal revenue at all the levels ca... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMarginal Cost (МC) Price (P) Marginal revenue Quantity (Q) Total Revenue (TR = PxQ) ΔTR (MR ΔQ 1,700 1,500 1,400 0 0 1,500 1 380 1,500 2,800 3,900 4,800 5,500 6,000 6,300 6,400 6,300 390 2 1,300 1,100 410 1,300 1,200 1,100 1,000 3 4 430 460 900 700 5 500 6 500 300 550 900 7 800 8 610 100 700 600 9 770 -100 10 790 6,000 -300 fullscreen
