# Equilibrium: Finding Profit Maximizing Output and Price

Not what you're looking for?

Given the following Demand & Supply functions:

Qd = 25 – P

Qs = 10 + 2P

a – What is the equilibrium values of P and Q?

Now suppose the demand function changes to:

Qd = 10,000 – 2P

If Total Cost function is:

TC = 5000 + 50Q

b - Find the Profit – maximizing Quantity and Price.

c – Find the firm’s profit.

Given the following Demand and Cost functions for a monopolistically competitive firm:

Qd = 100,000 - 20P

TC = 1,000 + 10Q + .05Q to the power of 2

a. Find the profit maximizing Quantity and Price.

b. Find the Profit.

Soution 1.

a - What is the equilibrium values of P and Q?

For equilibrium

Qd=Qs

25-P=10+2P

3P=25-10=15

3P=15

P=15/3=5

Qd (at P=5) =25-5=20

Qs (at P=5) =10+2*5=10+10=20

Equilibrium Price =$5

Equilibrium Quantity=20

Now suppose the demand function changes to:

Qd = 10,000 - 2P

If Total Cost function is:

TC = 5000 + 50Q

b - Find the Profit - maximizing Quantity and ...
