Part A: I attempted to find the profit-maximizing output and I got 42.857. From there I came up with a price of -25.71 (I don't feel that this is correct). After that I tried to find the profit, but when I went back to substitute my quantity (Q1) back into the profit equation I had a Q and I don't have a value for Q.

Part A
Here, we must first write the profit function. Revenue is P*Q (where P is given by the demand function) and cost is given by the cost function. Therefore, the profit function is:

Profit = P*Q - C = (660 - 16Q)Q - 900 - 60Q - 9Q^2 = 660Q - 16Q^2 - 900 - 60Q - 9Q^2
[the ^ symbol means "to the power of"]

In order to find the profit-maximizing quantity, we find the derivative of this function and equate it to zero. The derivative with respect to Q is:

660 - 32Q -60 - 18Q = 600 - 50Q

When equating it to zero, we get:

600 - 50Q = 0
50Q = 600
Q = 12

So the quantity is 12. Plugging this value into the demand function, we get that the price will be P = 660 - 16*12 = $468. Finally, the profit can be found by plugging Q=12 into the profit function we found above.

In a monopoly with a 50-50 chance of a demand curve of P=20-Q or P=40-Q and MC=Q, what is the profit maximizing price. Please show the steps to find either $5, 10, 15, or 20.

Suppose that a pharmaceutical company has a monopoly over the production of master cream, a drug used on skin rashes. Further suppose that the demand for master cream is given by the expression QD = 1,500 - P, where QD is the quantity demanded (in bottles) and P is the price. Assume that the company's costs are given by the expr

Please help explain profit maximizing decision of a pure monopolist firm and compare it to the profit maximizing decision of a firm within a purely competitive market and a monopolist firm in a competitive market.

Willy's Widgets, a monopoly, faces the following demand schedule (sales in widgets per month):
Price Quantity demanded
$20 40
$30 35
$40 30
$50 25
$60 20
$70 15
$80 10
$90 5
$100 0
Calculate marginal revenue over each interval in the schedule, for example, between Q = 4

Paradox Dental, Ltd., enjoys a local monopoly in the provision of oral examination services in Tuskegee, Alabama. Total and marginal revenue relations for the standard procedure are:
TR = $250Q - $0.001Q2
MR = dTR/dQ = $250 - $0.002Q
Marginal costs (and average variable costs for the process are sta

Calvins's Barber Shops, Inc., has a monopoly on barbershop services provided in the south side of Chicago because of restrictive licensing requirements, and not because of superior operating efficiency. As as monopoly, Calvin's provides all industry output.. For simplicity, assume that Calvins's operates a chain of barbershops a

Company A and Company B are soft drink companies operating in the same country for two decades. The market demand curve for their soft drinks is given by Q = 119 - 0.5P. Company A's short-run and marginal costs are given by STC = 3q2 + 48q + 572 and SMC = 6q + 48. Company B's short run total and marginal costs are given by STC
