Assume De Beers is the sole producer of diamonds. When it wants to sell more diamonds, it must lower its price in order to induce shoppers to buy more. Further more, each additional diamond that is produced costs more than the previous one due to the difficulty of mining for diamonds. De Beers s total benefit schedule is given in the accompanying table, along with its total cost schedule. a. Draw the marginal cost curve and the marginal benefit curve and, from your diagram, graphically derive the optimal quantity of diamonds to produce. b. Calculate the total profit to De Beers from producing each quantity of diamonds. Which quantity gives De Beers the highest total profit ?
