The cost demand and revenue functions have been determined By Delta and given below. The total amount of widgets sold in the market by all producers including Deltas sales is 238 units. Deltas current price is \$80 with sales of 10 units which gives Delta a market share of approximately 0.04201 or 4.201%. You have been asked to answer the following questions part A and B. P=\$100-2Q Demand for Deltas Widgets TC=Q2+2Q+100 A) Determine Delta Companys output that minimizes cost per unit (ATC) the optimal price at this output and level of profits. Be sure to show whether your solution is a maximum or a minimum. (5 points each) B) Determine Delta Companys profit maximizing output (round output to a whole number) the optimal price at this output and level of profits. Be sure to show whether your solution is a maximum or a minimum.10. (5 points each) C) If Delta wants to increase their market share to .05 or 5% what price and level of output will achieve this goal assuming that the rest of the industrys sales do not change. At this new price and output calculate Deltas profit. Note: When you are asked to forecast a quantity resulting from a change in a variable you may use the definition of elasticity the easy method to derive the forecast for all problems. Show less
