1 30 ? 10 -20

2 32 ? 20 -12

3 35 ? 30 -5

4 38 ? 40 2

5 42 ? 50 8

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.

Question 7

Explain the difference in the profit realized under the two situations (the price in each market or in the two markets combined.

Make sure you include the profit with and without price discrimination In your answer.

Question 8 Time Warner could offer the History Channel (H) and Showtime (S) individually or as a bundle of both.
