facing a monopolist.
b. The demand curve facing a competitive firm is downward sloping, whereas the demand
curve facing a monopolist is horizontal.
c. The demand curve facing a competitive firm is horizontal, whereas the demand curve
facing a monopolist is downward sloping.
d. The demand curve facing a competitive firm is downward sloping, as is the demand
curve facing a monopolist.
2. If a monopolist can sell 7 units when the price is $4 and 8 units when the price is $3, then marginal
revenue of selling the eighth unit is equal to
a. $3.
b. $4.
c. $24.
d. -$4.
3. For a profit-maximizing monopolist,

b. P = MR = MC.
c. P > MR > MC.
d. MR < MC < P.
4. Suppose a monopolist charges a price of $27 for its product and sells 10 units at that price. At 10 units
of production the firm has average fixed cost equal to $10 and average variable cost equal to $12. How
much total profit is the firm earning at this price? (Hint: use AVC and AFC to find ATC. Then, find TC
knowing Q=10).
a. $5
b. $25
c. $50
d. $140
