Chapter 9 q 13

Chapter 9 Q. 13


Chapter 9 q 13 answer

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • A. TR = $1,500 TC = $1,500 TFC = $500

  • TR = $1,500 > $1,000 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $1,500 - $500 = $1,000.

  • This means the firm should keep operating.

  • TR = TC so the firm’s economic profit is zero. The firm is earning a normal rate of return on investment, so it will continue operating as it is currently unless some factor changes.


Chapter 9 q 13 answer1

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • B. TR = $2,000 TC = $1,500 TFC = $500

  • TR = $2,000 > $1,000 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $1,500 - $500 = $1,000.

  • This means the firm should keep operating.

  • TR > TC so the firm’s economic profit is positive ($500). The firm is earning positive economic profit, so it will expand the scale of its operations.


Chapter 9 q 13 answer2

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • C. TR = $2,000 TC = $2,500 TFC = $200

  • TR = $2,000 < $2,300 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $2,500 - $200 = $2,300.

  • This means the firm should temporarily shut down.

  • TR < TC so the firm’s economic profit is negative (-$500). The firm is earning negative economic profit, so it will contract the scale of its operations and may exit the business in the long run.


Chapter 9 q 13 answer3

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • D. TR = $5,000 TC = $6,000 TFC = $1,500

  • TR = $5,000 > $4,500 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $6,000 - $1,500 = $4,500.

  • This means the firm should keep operating in the short run.

  • TR < TC so the firm’s economic profit is negative (-$1,000). The firm is earning negative economic profit, so it will contract the scale of its operations and may exit the business in the long run.


Chapter 9 q 13 answer4

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • E. TR = $5,000 TC = $7,000 TFC = $1,500

  • TR = $5,000 < $5,500 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $7,000 - $1,500 = $5,500.

  • This means the firm should shut down in the short run.

  • TR < TC so the firm’s economic profit is negative (-$2,000). The firm is earning negative economic profit, so it will contract the scale of its operations and may exit the business in the long run.


Chapter 9 q 13 answer5

Chapter 9 Q. 13 answer

  • F. TR = $5,000 TC = $4,000 TFC = $1,500

  • TR = $5,000 > $2,500 = TVC.

  • TVC = TC – FC = $4,000 - $1,500 = $2,500.

  • This means the firm should keep operating in the short run.

  • TR > TC so the firm’s economic profit is positive($1,000). The firm is earning positive economic profit, so it will expand the scale of its operations.


Chapter 9 q 14

Chapter 9 Q. 14


Chapter 9 q 14 answer

Chapter 9 Q. 14 answer

  • At Q = 5, P = $18 > $17 = MC.

  • TR = $90 TC = $95 Profit = -$5

  • TR = $90 > $73 = TVC.

  • This means the firm should keep operating in the short run.

  • TR < TC so the firm’s economic profit is negative(-$5). The firm is earning negative economic profit, so it will contract the scale of its operations and possibly exit the industry.


Ch 9 q 17

Ch. 9 Q. 17


Ch 9 q 17 answer

Ch. 9 Q. 17 answer

  • The trick is to realize that demand will increase first. That will raise the market price in the short run, creating positive economic profits.

  • But, since the industry is constant cost, the long-run price must remain at $6. Therefore, the supply curve will shift out just enough to return the price to $6.
