b) Find the short run profit maximizing level of output and profit if the price of output is 30. (1 point)
c) Find the short run profit maximizing level of output and profit if the price of output is 12.5. (1 point)
d) If there are 80 firms in the short run, and the market demand is P = -2Qd + 1000, explain why P = 60 is not the SRCE price. (1 point)
e) Find the SRCE price. (1 point)
