econmics help

Recommended Posts

Suppose a firm in a perfectly competive industry is producing a output of 10 units. The firms total revenue at this output is $80 and its total cost is $30. The firms marginal cost associated with the 11 unit of a output is $12. What can i say about an increase in production should it produce 11 unit or no


this is what i have

output TC MC

10 $30 $3 per unit

11 $42 $12 per unit


profit is $50


@10 units = 30/10 = $3

@11 unit = 42/11 = $3.80


it should not increase production because the cost more per unit to make


did i go about this right?

thanks joe
