Question 7 (1 point)
A by-product:

  3. has MC = MCQ.
  4. is identified in terms of its excess production.
Question 8 (1 point)

  1. cost.
  2. revenue.
  3. the price elasticity of demand.
  4. price.
Question 14 (1 point)

  1. fixed costs.
  2. implicit costs.
  3. explicit costs.
  4. effects on the costs of already existing products.
Question 15 (1 point)
With price discrimination, higher prices are charged when:

  2. the price elasticity of demand is low.
  3. the cross-price elasticity of demand is high.
  4. the cross-price elasticity of demand is low.
Question 16 (1 point)
Price discrimination exists when:
  1. costs vary among customers.
  2. markups vary among customers.
  3. markups are constant among customers.
  4. prices vary among customers.
Question 17 (1 point)
Successful price discrimination requires:
  1. the ability to prevent transfers among customers in different submarkets.
  2. inelastic demand in each submarket.
  3. constant marginal costs.
  4. identical price elasticities among submarkets.
Question 18 (1 point)

  2. average revenue in each market to marginal cost.
  3. marginal revenue in each market to marginal cost.
  4. price in each market to marginal cost.
Question 19 (1 point)
When products A and B are produced in fixed proportions, profits will be maximized when marginal cost:
  1. equals marginal revenue of B.
  2. of B equals zero.
  3. equals marginal revenue of A plus B
