C=f(Q)=880+0.25Q+0.0025Q^2
P=20.25-0.01Q

P (the second equation) is the inverse demand curve. it is also the price (thus = P(Q)
C is total cost
Q is CDs produced and sold in units (demand)

A. Calculate the unit price if the ventor sold 200 CDs.

Solution depicts the steps to calculate the unit price, demand equation, fixed cost, BEP and optimal output level in the given case.

Solution Preview

A. Calculate the unit price if the vendor sold 200 CDs.
P=20.25-0.01*Q
Put Q=200
P=20.25-0.01*200=\$18.25

B. Calculate the demand curve for CD.
P = 20.25 - .01Q
On rearranging we get
0.01Q=20.25-P
Q=2025-100P

C. Calculate the fixed and variable costs.
C = 880 + 0.25Q + 0.0025Q^2
Fixed cost can be found by putting Q=0
Fixed Cost=C at zero ...
