Where Qd denotes quantity demanded, P denotes price, Y denotes personal income

profileprince2014.slg

  Ajax, Inc. is a monopolist. The estimated demand function for its product is

Qd = 120 – 0.8P + 12Y + 4A

Where Qd denotes quantity demanded, P denotes price, Y denotes personal income (in thousands of dollars), and A denotes advertising expenditures in hundreds of dollars.

Ajax’s marginal cost function is given as

MC = 21 + 4Q

Assume Y equals 3 and A equals 3 and fixed costs equal $1000

a. What is the inverse demand function? (The equation demand equation in the form
P = a – b Q
d)?

 

b. What is the profit maximizing price and quantity of output for Ajax, assuming it is an unregulated monopoly? What are its profits?

 

c. If fixed costs increase to $1200, what will happen to equilibrium price and quantity?
