Differentiation

  • Purpose- to determine instantaneous rate of change

    Eg: instantaneous rate of change in total cost per unit of the good

    We will learn

  • Marginal Demand, Marginal Revenue, Marginal Cost, and Marginal Profit


Marginal cost mc q l.jpg
Marginal Cost :MC(q)

  • What is Marginal cost?

    The cost per unit at a given level of production

    EX:

    Recall Dinner problem

    C(q) = C0 + VC(q).

    = 9000+177*q0.633

    MC(q)- the marginal cost at q dinners

    MC(100)- gives us the marginal cost at 100 dinners

    This means the cost per unit at 100 dinners

    How to find MC(q) ? We will learn 3 plans


Marginal analysis l.jpg
Marginal Analysis

  • First Plan

  • Cost of one more unit


Marginal analysis4 l.jpg
Marginal Analysis

  • Ex. Suppose the cost for producing a particular item is given by where q is quantity in whole units. Approximate MC(500).

  • Second Plan

  • Average cost of one more and one less unit

  • Final Plan

  • Average cost of fractionally more and fractionally less units

    difference quotients

  • Typically use with h = 0.001

In terms of money, the marginal cost at the production level of 500, $6.71 per unit

  • Use Differentiating.xls to graph the derivative of on the interval [-2, 8]. Then evaluate .


Differentiating xslm l.jpg
Differentiating.xslm

  • Key points

  • Formula for the function in x

  • Plot Interval is ESSENTIAL

  • You can use the computation cells to evaluate the f(x) & f’(x) at different values

  • If using Office 2007, save it as a macro enabled file

  • Properties

    If (c is a constant) then

    If (m is a constant) then

    If then

    If then


Derivatives21 l.jpg
Derivatives

  • Tangent line approximations

  • Useful for easy approximations to complicated functions

  • Need a point and a slope (a derivative)

  • Use y = mx +b


Derivatives22 l.jpg
Derivatives

  • Ex. Determine the equation of the tangent line to at x = 3.

  • Recall and we have the point (3, 14)

  • Tangent line is y = 5.5452x – 2.6356

  • Project (Marginal Revenue)

    - Typically

    - In project,

    - units are


Recall revenue function r q l.jpg
Recall:Revenue function-R(q)

  • Revenue in million dollars R(q)

  • Why do this conversion?

    Marginal Revenue in dollars per drive

  • Project (Marginal Cost)

    - Typically

    - In project,

    - units are


Derivatives26 l.jpg
Derivatives

  • Project (Marginal Cost)

    - Marginal Cost is given in original data

    - Cost per unit at different production levels

    - Use IF function in Excel


Derivatives27 l.jpg
Derivatives

  • Project (Marginal Profit)

    MP(q) = MR(q) – MC(q)

    - If MP(q) > 0, profit is increasing

    - If MR(q) > MC(q), profit is increasing

    - If MP(q) < 0, profit is decreasing

    - If MR(q) < MC(q), profit is decreasing


Derivatives28 l.jpg
Derivatives

  • Project (Marginal Cost)

    - Calculate MC(q)

    Nested If function, the if function using values for Q1-4 & 6

    - IF(q<=800,160,IF(q<=1200,128,72))

    In the GOLDEN sheet need to use cell referencing for IF function because we will make copies of it, and do other project questions

    =IF(B30<$E$20,$D$20,IF(B30<$E$22,$D$21,$D$22))


Recall production cost estimates l.jpg
Recall -Production cost estimates

  • Fixed overhead cost - $ 135,000,000

  • Variable cost (Used for the MC(q) function)

  • First 800,000 - $ 160 per drive

  • Next 400,000- $ 128 per drive

  • All drives after the first 1,200,000-

    $ 72 per drive

    - Maximum profit occurs when MP(q) = 0

    - Max profit occurs when MR(q) = MC(q)

    - Estimate quantity from graph of Profit

    - Estimate quantity from graph of Marginal Profit

Marginal analysis34 l.jpg
Marginal Analysis-

  • where h = 0.000001

  • In Excel we use derivative of R(q)

  • R(q)=aq^3+bq^2+cq

  • R’(q)=a*3*q^2+b*2*q+c

  • MP(q) = MR(q) – MC(q)

  • We will use Solver to find the exact value of q for which MP(q) = 0. Here we estimate from the graph

Profit function l.jpg
Profit Function

  • The profit function, P(q), gives the relationship between the profit and quantity produced and sold.

  • P(q) = R(q) – C(q)


Goals l.jpg
Goals

1. What price should Card Tech put on the drives, in order to achieve the maximum profit?

2. How many drives might they expect to sell at the optimal price?

3. What maximum profit can be expected from sales of the 12-GB?

4. How sensitive is profit to changes from the optimal quantity of drives, as found in Question 2?

5. What is the consumer surplus if profit is maximized?

Goals contd l.jpg
Goals-Contd.

6. What profit could Card Tech expect, if they price the drives at $299.99?

7. How much should Card Tech pay for an advertising campaign that would increase demand for the 12-GB drives by 10% at all price levels?

8. How would the 10% increase in demand effect the optimal price of the drives?

9. Would it be wise for Card Tech to put $15,000,000 into training and streamlining which would reduce the variable production costs by 7% for the coming year?
