Qd = 40 – 4p

In a tabular form:
P|10|8| 6|4 |2 |1
Q|0 |8|16|24|32|36

When price = 10
Qd = 40-4(10) = 0

When price = 8
Qd = 40-4(8) = 8

When price = 6
Qd = 40-4(6) = 16

When price = 4
Qd = 40-4(4) = 24

When price = 2
Qd = 40-4(2) = 32

When price = 1
Qd = 40-4(1) = 36

Draw the diagram:

(1c)
The slope of demand curve is downwards which indicates that the quantity demanded has negative correlation with price. The higher the price the lower the quantity demanded and vice versa.

MR = ∆inTR/∆inQ
TR2 – TR1/Q2 – Q1

At Q = 2,
MR = 30-20/2-1 = ₦10

At Q = 3
MR = 60-30/3-2 = ₦30

At Q = 4
MR = 80-60/4-3 = ₦20

At Q = 5
MR = 120-80/5-4 = ₦40

At Q = 6
MR = 150-120/6-5 = ₦30

AR = TR/Q

At Q = 1
AR = 20/1 = ₦20

At Q = 2
AR = 30/2 = ₦15

At Q = 3
AR = 60/3 = ₦20

At Q = 4
AR = 80/4 = ₦20

At Q = 5
AR = 120/5 = ₦24

At Q = 6
AR = 150/6 = ₦25

MC = TC2 – TC1/Q2 – Q1

At Q = 1
MC = 40 – 0/1 – 0 = ₦40

At Q = 2
MC = 50 – 40/2 – 1 = ₦10

At Q = 3
MC = 60 – 50/3 – 2 = ₦10

At Q = 4
MC = 80 – 60/4 – 3 = ₦20

At Q = 5
MC = 110 – 80/5 – 4 = ₦30

At Q = 6
MC = 120 – 110/6 – 5 = ₦10

(2b)

(ii) When MC is cutting MR from below at equilibrium point.
