    Please help with the following economics problem. Provide step by step calculations.

    You are the manager of a firm that sells its product in a competitive market at a price of 50. Your firms cost structure is c=40 + 5Q2.

    The profit maximizing output for your firm is one of the following:

    10
    5
    45

    1.50 per unit
    6.67 per unit
    10.00 per unit
    15.00 per unit
