Quantity (market)

Quantity (firm)

b) i) 5 units => set MR = MC ii) zero economic profit (P-ATC )* Qty

d) i) 6 units set MR = MC ii) profit is \$15 dollars

e) i) Shutdown when price \$1.75 because P < AVC. ii) Exit long run P < ATC

f) i) Stay open if price is \$2 or higher (min of AVC)

ii) Exit in long run unless price is \$6 or higher (min of ATC)

10) MP crosses AP at max (as MP falls, worker efficiency falls)

11) MC crosses both AVC & ATC at min

12) Yes, MC determines change in AVC & ATC

13) Diminishing marginal returns ensures that MP must eventually fall => when MP falls => MC must rise (leads to upward sloping MC curve as workers become less efficient)
