Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Simple maxim of marginal analysis Make a

small move to a nearby alternative if and only

if the move will improve ones objective. Keep

moving, always in the direction of an improved

objective, and stop when no further move helps.

Expand an Activity if and only if the Extra

Benefit exceeds the Extra Cost.

Refresher Differential Calculus

- A derivative is a rate of change (marginal

change, slope). - From total cost, the first derivative gives

marginal cost (slope at specific point).

Refresher Differential Calculus

Rule 1 The derivative of a constant is zero.

Where c is a constant

THE FIRMS BASIC PROFITMAXIMIZATION PROBLEM

- What Quantity of Output should the Firm
- Produce and Sell and at What Price?
- Firm produces single good for single market.

Objective profit max. - Must determine quantity and price of good.
- Assume firm can predict revenue and cost

consequences of price and output decisions with

certainty.

MAXIMIZING PROFITMATH SOLUTIONS

- Start with Demand and Cost Information
- P 170 - 20Q and C 100 38Q

- Therefore, R 170Q - 20Q2
- so MR 170 - 40Q and MC 38

- Setting MR MC implies 170 - 40Q 38

SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS

Considers changes in Fixed Costs, Marginal

costs, or

Demand Conditions

A change in fixed cost has no effect on Q or P

(because MR and MC are not affected).
