    first we write down the profit functions for both firms (remember profit = revenue-cost = price X sales quantity - cost; and price = 10000-6Q = 10000 - 6Ql - 6Qf, because total quantity = leader's quantity + follower's quantity)

    leader's profit = (10000-6Ql - 6Qf)Ql - 15Ql = 10000Ql - 6Ql^2 - 6QlQf - 15Ql

    take the ...
