The market demand curve for a product is given below:
QD = 250 – 0.5P
Assume that the market is supplied by a monopolist with a constant unit cost equal to $100. Calculate the equilibrium price and quantity.
Now assume that the market is supplied by perfectly competitive firms and that the market supply curve is perfectly elastic at a price equal to $100. Calculate the equilibrium price and quantity.
