    Problem:

    The the external MC of pollution is MCexternal = 5Q and the internal marginal cost is MCinternal = 10Q.

    Further, assume the inverse demand for the product, Q, is p = 90-Q . For the following questions calculate your answers to two decimal points.

    a. What is the socially efficient level of output?
