Suppose there are two firms in a market who each simultaneously choose aquantity. Firm 1’s quantity is q1, and firm 2’s quantity is q2. Therefore the market quantity is Q= q1 + q2. The market demand curve is given by P = 100 – 4Q. Also, each firm has constantmarginal cost equal to 28. There are no fixed costs.The marginal revenue of the two firms are given by:?MR1 = 100 – 8q1 – 4q2?MR2 = 100 – 4q1 – 8q2.
