7. The market demand for a monopoly firm is estimated to be:
Qd = 100,000 – 500P +2M + 5,000PR
where Qd is is quantity demanded, P is price, M is income, and PR is the price of a related good. The manager has forecasted the values of M and PR will be \$50,000 and \$20, respectively, in 2012. The marginal cost function is estimated to be MC = 500 + 0.006Q. Total fixed cost in 2012 is expected to be \$4 million.
For 2012, the inverse demand function is
a. P = 600 − 0.001Q.

c. P = 600 − 0.004Q.
d. P = 600 – 0.002Q.

9. “Airlines” Scenario
An airline knows that there are two types of travelers: business travelers and vacationers. For a particular flight, there are 100 business travelers who will pay \$600 for a ticket while there are 50 vacationers who will pay \$300 for a ticket. There are 150 seats available on the plane. Suppose the cost to the airline of providing the flight is \$20,000, which includes the cost of the pilots, flight attendants, fuel, etc.
