Tutorial one (23.6.2013)
Suppose where the following profit function for a certain firm. Find the level of output (Q) which maximizes the profit of the firm:
П= -3.000 - 2.400Q + 350 Q^{2 }- 8⅓Q^{3}
Tutorial two (30.6.2013)
Given the following profit function
П= -10.000 + 400Q = 2Q^{2}
Where:
П = is total profit, Q = is the level of output.
Find the:
