2. Your company sells its product online and in stores. Your marginal cost \$30 is the same in both markets. The demand and marginal revenue curves in the two markets are different however.
Qonline = 1,000-2 Ponline
MRonline = 500-Qonline

Qstores = 200-Pstores
MRstores = 200-2 Qstores

## Finding optimum price and output levels..

Perfect Competition
Given the following equations:

Qd=-1000P+Income+11000
TC=(1/70)q^2-(25/35)q+100
MC=(1/35)q-(25/35)
Number of firms =85

Assume Income =11000.
i.What is the market supply equation?
ii.What is the market equilibrium price ?
iii.What is the market equilibrium quantity?
iv.What is the profit maximizing output (PMO) level?
v.What is the average profit and total profit at this PMO level?
