8 Part B: Short Answer Questions (Worth 40 points. Points for each part in parentheses.) Instructions: Write your answers on this exam sheet. Show any calculations needed to derive your answer. You will not receive credit for a correct answer without the appropriate calculations. 1. Suppose demand for cinema tickets for each showing of the movie Eisenhower: When America was Proud is given by P = Q. Suppose also the theater has a capacity of 120 seats, and that the cost of the marginal person up to the capacity is \$0. The fixed cost of the theater per showing is \$100. (a) Calculate the profit maximizing price. Calculate also consumer surplus and the theater s profits. (6) 8

9 The theater manager discovers that the demand curve is composed of two elements. All the demand for a price equal to or above \$8 is from people 60 or over, and all the demand for a price of \$8 or below is from people aged less than 60. (b) In the figure below draw the demand curve and marginal revenue curve for seniors, labeling the axis and the intercepts. Calculate the profit maximizing price for this group. (3) 9

10 (c) In the figure below draw the demand curve for younger people and marginal revenue curve for younger people, labeling the axis and the intercepts. Calculate the profit maximizing price for this group. (3) 10

11 (d) Show that price discrimination in this case is economically efficient. (4) (e) Are consumers better or worse off with price discrimination? Explain. (2) 11

12 2. (a) In a monopolistic competition market what three conditions will firms satisfy in the long run? (3) (b) Suppose the firms have cost functions of LTC = 9+12q+q 2 (so that LMC is 12+2q). Calculate the price that output would sell at if the industry is perfectly competitive. (3) (c) Given that the industry is one of monopolistic competition will the price in this market be higher or lower than the price you calculated in (b)? Explain your answer carefully. (4) 12

13 13

14 3. Suppose that demand in the market for bicycles in Davis is given by P = 100-Q d. Supply is given by Q s = P 50. (a) In the diagram In the diagram below show the demand and supply curves (labeling axes and intercepts). Calculate the equilibrium price and quantity. (4) 14

15 (b) In an effort to promote bike use the city subsidizes bike sales by giving \$20 to each bike purchaser. In the diagram above show the new demand curve (labeling axes and intercepts), and calculate the new price and quantity (4) (c) If there are no external benefits or costs from bike usage calculate the efficiency cost of the subsidy in \$.
