Step 1

It is given that,

The above table depicts the demand and cost structures of foreign language translator software of a monopoly producer.

To find: The MR of 12th unit, the firm’s profit maximization price and output, and the amount of profit

We know that,

Marginal Revenue is the additional revenue that a firm can generate by selling an additional unit of output in the market; therefore, the MR of 12th unit can be derived by subtracting the 11th unit Total Revenue (TR) from 12th unit TR i.e.  TR (12th unit) – TR (11th unit). Thus, referring to the modified table 15-1, we can write:

MR (12th unit) = \$900 - \$880

= \$20

Therefore, for the above question (1) the correct option is (C).

Step 2

Now, we have to determine the profit maximizing price and output

We know that,

At the profit maximizing level, the amount of profit is maximum; therefore, referring to the modified table 15-1 we can conclude that the profit is maximum (\$350) at two prices i.e. \$70 and \$75 where the profit-maximizing quantities are 13 and 12 units respectively. Ho...
