Solution Summary

Stackelberg duopoly is exemplified.

Solution Preview

<br><br>In a Stackelberg Model the price of the good depends on the quantity produced by both the leader and the follower. Hence the price function becomes:
<br><br>P = 5,000 - 3(QF+QL)
<br><br>Now, let us start with the follower's problem. He is a profit maximizer. Hence the profit maximizing equation for the follower becomes:
<br><br>Max: P*QF -CF
<br><br>Substituting the above from the equations given in the problem:
<br><br> Max: [5,000 - 3(QF+QL)]*QF -[250 + ...
