At the profit maximizing activity level,

II = TR - TC,

Here, II = 130Q - 0.000125Q^2 - 600,000 - 63Q
= 67Q - 0.000125Q^2 - 600,000

Now, setting the profit-maximizing level, from which any extra profit is not possible,

dII / dQ = 67 - 0.00025Q* = 0
II Q* = 67 / 0.00025 = 268,000

where, II = Profit, TR = Total Revenue, TC ...
