Question description

Question 1

Suppose your company runs a shuttle business at a hotel to and from the local airport. The cost for customer load are:

  1. customer: $30.00 2 customers $32.00 3 customers $35.00 4 customers $ 38.00 5 customers $42.00 6 customers $48.00 7 customers $57.00

8 customers $68.00

What are your marginal cost for each customer load level?

2 32 ? 20 -12

3 35 ? 30 -5

4 38 ? 40 2

5 42 ? 50 8

6 . 48 ? 60 12

.7 57 ? 70 13 .

8 68 ? 80. 12

Question 2

Suppose your company runs a shuttle business of a hotel to and from the local airport. The costs for different customer loads are:

1 customer $30. 2 customers $32. 3 customers $35. 4 customers $38

5 customers $ 42. 6 customers $ 48 7 customers $ 57 8 customers $68

I you are compensated $10. per ride, what customer load would you choose?

Question 3

Suppose the number of firms you compete with has recently increased. You estimated that as a result of the increased competition, the demand elasticity has increased from -2 to -3 i.e., you face more elastic demand. You are currently charging $10.00 for your product. If demand elasticity is -3, you should charge (X).

Question 4

An amusement park, whose customer set is made up of two markets adults and children, has developed demand schedules as follows:

The marginal operating cost of each unit of quantity is $5.00, because marginal cost is a constant, so is average variable cost. Ignore fixed cost. The owner of the amusement park want to maximize profits.
