1. Suppose a firm in Toronto has two markets with the following demand curve for each market,
P 1=100 ?
Q and P2=\$60, and the marginal cost of this firm is MC=2Q. Discuss the best pricing policy for this firm to
maximize its profit.
2. Suppose the market demand for a particular product is given:
P= 10 - 0.002Q, and the industry marginal cost is MC=4+0.001Q.
Compare the welfares between the market structures of perfect competition and monopoly.
3. The production function is f (L, M) = 4
, where L is the number of units of labor and M is the
number of machines. If the amounts of both factors can be varied and if the cost of labor is \$36 per unit and
the cost of using machines is \$4 per machine, then
a.
Compute the total cost of producing 24 units of output.
b.
Compute the amount of output if cost constraint is limited \$432.00
4. Suppose the cost function for a perfectly competitive firm is given that: TC = 100 + q 2. Market
demand is Q = 10,000 - 100p.
a.
b.
c.

What could be the profit when the industry is in a long-run equilibrium position?
How many identical firms will there be in the long-run position?
Derive the long-run industry supply curve.

5. A monopolist faces the following demand curve: Y=50-0.5P, has the cost function that C=100+4Y,
where Y is the quantity of the product, and the price elasticity of demand is currently -3.
