Question description

1.  Consider a firm with the following production schedule and a fixed cost in the short run of 19.  This fixed cost comes from using the unique quantity of the fixed input that minimizes LRAC.  Assume all of the firms are identical firms in the long run and all the firms can only produce whole quantities (i.e.,  Q=3.5 not possible)

b)  Find the new SRCE price, firm quantity, market quantity, and firm profit with this new demand function.  (1 point)

c) Find the new LRCE price, firm quantity, and number of firms with this new demand.  Explain why the number of firms found here is consistent with what you found in (c)  (1 point)
