Question;(12 Points);You are operating a firm in a perfectly competitive market. In the short;run, you have fixed costs of $30. Your variable costs are given in the;following table;Q;TVC;0;0;1;70;2;120;3;150;4;190;5;270;6;360;Complete the following table;Market Price;Profit maximizing;level of output;Profit;$48;$52;$75;$85;2.;(10 Points);A monopolist faces a demand curve given by;P = 105 ? 3Q, where P is;the price of the good and Q is the quantity demanded. The marginal cost;of production is constant and is equal to $15. There are no fixed costs;of production.;A) (2 points) What;quantity should the monopolist produce in order to maximize profit?;B) (2 points) What price;should the monopolist charge in order to maximize profit?;C) (2 points) How much;profit will the monopolist make?;D) (2 points) What is;the deadweight loss created by this monopoly (hint: compare the monopoly;outcome with the perfectly competitive outcome).;E) (2 points) If the;market were perfectly competitive, what quantity would be produced?;3.;(6 Points);List the three conditions that must be met in order for a firm to successfully;engage in price discrimination.;4.;(12 Points);Suppose a competitive firm can sell its output for $6 per unit.
