Through its patented welding and riveting process, Iron-head, Inc is a monopoly manufacturer and distributor of metal head plates worn in the skull region by unfortunates who have sustained severe head trauma The annual market demand for head plates is P = 500 – Â½Q Total cost for Iron-head is C = 100 – 2Q + 05Q2
a) (4 pts) Graph the demand curve, marginal revenue curve, average cost curve, and marginal cost curve for Iron-head
b) (4 pts) Using calculus, derive the profit maximizing quantity of head plates released on to the market by Iron-head, the monopolistic price in equilibrium, total revenues, total costs, and profit for Iron-head under its monopoly power
