Hey guys, Can someone help me to compute the monopoly profits of the following situation.  2 products  2 demand functions given by; * P(1)= 60  Q(1)  0.5Q(2) * P(2)= 60  Q(2)  0.5Q(2)  Cost are 0 Is it correct that I should use: MC=MR MC=0 MR= P(1) * Q(1) + P(2) * Q(2) ?? FOC ?? Thanks for helping me out. Last edited by skipjack; April 24th, 2014 at 04:44 PM.

Is the first equation (with a term involving Q(2)) given correctly? I don't understand why you asked about "MC = MR"; was that a typing error?
