Answer the following questions in one or two sentences

Question 21.
If 62 = 34 + 4x  what is x?
solution:
If 62 = 34 + 4x what is x
Given:
62 = 34 + 4x
34 + 4x = 62
4x = 62-34
4x = 28
x = $$\frac { 28 }{ 4 }$$
x = 7

Question 22.
Given the demand function q = 150 – 3p, derive a function for MR.
Solution:
Given:
q = 150 – 3p
$$\frac { dq }{ dq }$$ = 0 – 3 (1)
$$\frac { dq }{ dq }$$ = – 3
Revenue = price × quantity = p (150 – 3p)
= p (150 – 3p)
= 150p – 3p2
MR = $$\frac { dq }{ dq }$$ = 150 $$\frac { dq }{ dq }$$ -6p $$\frac { dq }{ dq }$$
= 150 ($$\frac { – 1 }{ 3 }$$) – 6p ($$\frac { – 1 }{ 3 }$$)
= – 50 + 2p
= – 50 = 2 ($$\frac { 150 – q }{ 3 }$$)
= 50 + 100 + $$\frac { – 2 q }{ 3 }$$
= 50 – $$\frac { 2 q }{ 3 }$$
= 50 – $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ (150 – 3p)
MR = 2p – 50

Question 23.
Find the average cost function where TC = 60 + 10x +15x2
Solution:
Given:
TC = 60 + 10x +15x2
Average Cost = $$\frac { TC }{ x }$$
= $$\frac{60+10 x+15 x^{2}}{x}$$
= $$\frac { 60 }{ x }$$ + $$\frac { 10x }{ x }$$ + $$\frac{15 x^{2}}{x}$$
AC = $$\frac { 60 }{ x }$$ + 10 + 15x

Question 24.
The demand function is given by x = 20 – 2p – p2 where p and x are the price and the quantity respectively. Find the elasticity of demand for p = 2.5.
Solution:
Given:
x = 20 – 2p – p2
p = 2.5
ed = ($$\frac { p }{ x }$$) ($$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$)
If p = 2.5 then x,
x = 20 – 2 (2.5) – (2.5)2
= 20 – 5 – (6.25)
= 15 – 6.25
x = 8.75
Here x = 20 – 2p – p2
$$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$ = 0 – 2 (1) – 2p
= -2 – 2p
If P = 2.5 then
$$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$ = -2 – 2 (2.5)
= -2 – 5
$$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$ = – 7
ed = $$\frac { -2.5 }{ 8.75 }$$ × – 7
= 0.2857 × – 7
ed = 2

Question 25.
Suppose the price p and quantity q of a commodity are related by the equation q = 30 – 4p – p2
find :

1. ed at p = 2
2. MR

Solution:
Given:
q = 30 – 4p – p2
1. ed = ($$\frac { p }{ x }$$)($$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$)
If P = 2 then
x = 30 – 4 (2) – 22
= 30 – 8 – 4
=20 – 12
x = 18
$$\frac { dx }{ dp }$$ =30 – 4p – p2
= 0 – 4 – 2p
= 0 – 4 – 2 (2)
= -4 -4
= -8
ed = $$\frac { 2 }{ 18 }$$ (-8)
x = – $$\frac { 16 }{ 18 }$$
ed = – 0.88

2. MR
TR = p ×q
TR = p (30 – 4p – p2)
= 30p – 4p2 – p3
MR = $$\frac { d(TR) }{ dp }$$
= 30 – 8p – 3p2
If p = 2
MR = 30 – 8 (2) – 3 (2)2
= 30 – 16 12
MR = 2

Question 26.

x = 8

Question 30.
A firm has the revenue function R = 600q – 0.03q2 and the cost function is C = 150q + 60,000, where q is the number of units produced. Find AR, AC, MR and MC.
Solution:
Given:
R = 600q – 0.03q2
C = 150q + 60000

(i) AR = $$\frac { R }{ q }$$
= $$\frac{600 q-0.03 q^{2}}{q}$$
= $$\frac { 600q }{ q }$$ – $$\frac{0.03 \mathrm{q}^{2}}{\mathrm{q}}$$
= AR = 600 – 0.0.q

(ii) AC = $$\frac { c }{ q }$$
= $$\frac { 150q + 60000 }{ q }$$
= $$\frac { 150q }{ q }$$ + $$\frac { 60000 }{ q }$$
AC = 150 + ($$\frac { 60000 }{ q }$$)

(iii) MR = $$\frac { dr }{ dq }$$
R = 600q – 0.03q
$$\frac { dR }{ dq }$$ = 600 (1) – 0.03 (2q)
MR = 600 – 0.06q

(iv) MC = $$\frac { dc }{ dq }$$
C = 150q + 60000
$$\frac { dc }{ dq }$$ = 150 (1) + 0
MC = 150

Question 31.
Solve the following linear equations by using Cramer’s rule.
x1 – x2 + x3 = 2
– x1 – x2 – x3 = 0
– x1 – x2 – x3 = – 6
Solution: = 1 (- 1 – 1) + 1 (- 1 – 1) + 1 (- 1 + 1)
= 1(- 2) + 1 (0)
∆ = – 2 – 2
∆ = – 2 – 2
∆ = – 4 = 2 (- 1 – 1) + 1 (0 + 6) + 1 (0 – 6)
= 2 (- 2) + 1(6) + 1 (- 6)
= – 4 + 6 – 6
∆ = – 4 = 1 (0 – 6) – 2 (- 1 – 1)+1(- 6 + 0)
= 1 (- 6) – 2 (- 2) + 1 (- 6)
= – 6 + 4 – 6
= – 12 + 4
∆x3 = -8 1 (- 6 + 0) + 1 (- 6 + 0) + 2 (- 1 + 1)
= 1 (- 6) + 1 (- 6) + 2 (0)
= – 6 – 6
∆x3 = – 12 Question 32.
If a firm faces the total cost function TC = 5+ x2 where x is output, what is TC when x is 10?

Given:
TC = 5 + x2
If x = 10
TC = 5 + 102
= 5 + 100
TC = 105

Question 33.
If TC = 2.5q3 – 13q2 + 50q + 12 derive the MC function and AC function.
solution:
Given:
TC= 2.5q3 – 13q2 + 50q + 12
Marginal cost function
MC = $$\frac { d(TC) }{ dQ }$$
= $$\frac { d }{ dq }$$ [2.5q3 – 13q2 + 50q + 12]
= 2.5 (3q2) – 13 (2q) + 50 (1) + 0
MC = 7.5q – 26q + 50
Average cost AC =$$\frac { TC }{ q }$$
= $$\frac{2.5 q^{3}-13 q^{2}+50 q+12}{q}$$
= $$\frac{2.5 q^{3}}{q}$$ – $$\frac{13 q^{2}}{q}$$ + $$\frac { 50q }{ q }$$ + $$\frac { 12 }{ q }$$
AC = 2.5q – 13q + 50 + $$\frac { 12 }{ q }$$

Question 35.
A Research scholar researching the market for fresh cow milk assumes that Qt = f (Pt, Y, A, N, Pc) where Qt is the quantity of milk demanded, Pt is the price of fresh cow milk, Y is average household income, A is advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk, N is population and Pc is the price of processed pocket milk.

1. What does Qt= f (Pt, Y,A,N, Pc) mean in words?
2. Identify the independent variables.
3. Make up a specific form for this function. (Use your knowledge of Economics to deduce whether the coefficients of the different independent variables should be positive or negative.)

Solution:
1. Qt is the function of Pt, Y, A, N, Pc
The determinants of demand are
Pt = Price of fresh cow milk.
Y = Average household income
A = Advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk
N = Population
Pc = Price of processed pocket milk.

2. Y and N are independent variables

3. Average household income and population are directly proportional to quantity demanded of cow’s milk (ie if Y and N increases Qt also increase)
Price of fresh cow milk, advertising expenditure on pocket milk and price of processed pocket milk are inversely proportional to Qt.
There
Qt = – aPt + by – CA + dN – ePc

Question 36.
Calculate the elasticity of demand for the demand schedule by using differential calculus method P = 60 – 0.2 Q where price is

1. zero
2. Rs.20
3. Rs.40

Solution:
P = 60 – 0.2 Q
0.2 Q = 60 – P
(0.2 Q) 10 = (60 – p) 10
2 Q = 600 – 10p
Q = 300 – 5p
Given demand function Q = 300 – 5p
1. If P = 0 then Q = 300 – 5 (0)
= 300
$$\frac { dq }{ dp }$$ = 300 – 5p
= 0 – 5
$$\frac { dq }{ dp }$$ = – 5
ed = $$\frac { p }{ p }$$($$\frac { dq }{ dp }$$)
= $$\frac { 0 }{ 300 }$$(-5)
ed = 0

2. If p = 20 then Q = 300 = 5 (20)
= 200
ed = $$\frac { 20 }{ 200 }$$ (-5)
= – $$\frac { 100 }{ 200 }$$
ed = – 0.5

3. If = 40 then Q = 300 – 5 (40)
= 300 – 200
Q = 100
ed = $$\frac { p }{ q }$$($$\frac { dq }{ dp }$$)
= $$\frac { 40 }{ 100 }$$ (-5)
ed = – $$\frac { 200 }{ 100 }$$
ed = -2

Question 37.
The demand and supply functions are pd=1600 – x2 and ps = 2x2 + 400 respectively. Find the consumer’s surplus and producer’s surplus at equilibrium point.
At equilibrium pd = ps
1600 – x2 = 2x2 + 400
– x2 – 2x2 = 400 – 1600
– 3x2 = – 1200
x2 = $$\frac { 1200 }{ 3 }$$
x2 = 400
x = 20
If x = 20 po = 1600 – (20)2
= 1600 – 400
po = 1200
po xo = 1200 × 20
= 24000 = 8000 – $$\frac { 8000 }{ 3 }$$
= $$\frac { 24000 – 8000 }{ 3 }$$
= $$\frac { 16000 }{ 3 }$$
C.S = 5333.3 Question 4.
What are the ideas of information and communication technology used in economics?
