Answer the following Questions in one or two sentences.

Question 1.
1f 62 = 34 + 4x what is x?
62 – 34 = 4x
⇒ 28 = 4x
28 ÷ 4 = x
∴ x = 7

Question 2.
Given the demand function q = 150 – 3p, derive a function for MR?
Demand function q = 150 – 3p
dqdp = -3 Question 3.
Find the average cost function where TC = 60+ 10x + 15x2
TC = 60 + 10x +15x2
Average Cost = TCx
= 60+10x+15x2x
= 60x + 10xx + 15x2x
AC = 60x + 10 + 15x

Question 4.
The demand function is given by x = 20 – 2p – p2 where p and x are the prices and the quantity respectively. Find the elasticity of demand for p = 2.5?
ed = px dxdp
dxdp = -2-2p Question 5.

Answer the following questions in one paragraph:

Question 1.
Illustrate the uses of Mathematical Methods in Economics?
Uses of Mathematical Methods in Economics:

1. Mathematical methods help to present the economic problems in a more precise form.
2. Mathematical methods help to explain economic concepts.
3. Mathematical methods help to use a large number of variables in economic analyses.
4. Mathematical methods help to quantify the impact or effect of any economic activity implemented by the government or anybody.

Question 2.
Solve for x quantity demanded if 16x – 4 = 68 + 7x?
16x – 4 = 68 + 7x
16x – 7x = 68 + 4
9x = 72
x = 729 = 8
∴ x = 8

Question 3.
A firm has the revenue function R = 600q – 0.03q2 and the cost function is C = 150q + 60,000, where q is the number of units produced. Find AR, AC, MR and MC?
R = 600q – 0.03q2
C = 150q + 60000

(i) AR = Rq
= 600q0.03q2q
= 600qq0.03q2q
= AR = 600 – 0.0.q

(ii) AC = cq
= 150q+60000q
= 150qq + 60000q
AC = 150 + (60000q)

(iii) MR = drdq
R = 600q – 0.03q
dRdq = 600 (1) – 0.03 (2q)
MR = 600 – 0.06q

(iv) MC = dcdq
C = 150q + 60000
dcdq = 150 (1) + 0
MC = 150

Question 4.
Solve the following linear equations by using Cramer’s rule?
x1 – x2 + x3 = 2;
x1 + x2 – x3 = 0;
– x1 – x2 – x3 = -6
x1 – x2 + x3 = 2
x1 + x2 – x3 = 0
– x1 – x2 – x3 = -6
AX = B Question 5.
If a firm faces the total cost function TC = 5 + x2 where x is output, what is TC when x is 10?
TC = 5 + x2
TC = 5 + 102
TC = 5 + 100
∴TC = 105

Question 6.
If TC = 2.5q3 – 13q2 + 50q + 12 derive the MC function and AC function?
dcdq = MC
AC = TCq
dcdq = 2.5(3)q2 – [13 × 2]q + 50
MC = 7.5q2 – 26q + 50
AC = 2.5q313q2+50q+12q
∴ AC = 2.5q2 – 13q + 50 + 12q

PART – D

Question 1.
A Research scholar researching the market for fresh cow milk assumes that Qt = f (Pt, Y, A, N, Pc) where Qt is the quantity of milk demanded, Pt is the price of fresh cow milk, Y is average household income, A is advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk, N is population and Pc is the price of processed pocket milk.

1. What does Qt = f (Pt, Y, A,N, Pc) mean in words?
2. Identify the independent variables.
3. Make up a specific form for this function.

(Use your knowledge of Economics to deduce whether the coefficients of the different independent variables should be positive or negative.)

1. Qt is the function of Pt, Y, A, N, Pc
Pt – Price of fresh cow milk
Y = Average household income
A = Advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk
N = Population
Pc = Price of processed pocket milk

2. Identify the Independent variables.
“Y” = Average household income
“N” = Population [“N” are Independent Variables]
Pc = Price of processed pocket milk
“Pc” = depending “Pt”
= Pc depending “A”
“A” = depending “N”
∴ Pc depending “Pt”, “A”, and “N”.

3. Make up specific form for this function [use your knowledge of Economics to deduce whether the co-efficient of the different independent variables should be positive or negative]

• “Pc ” = Price of processed pocket milk
When the price of processed milk increases and the quantity demanded of fresh milk decreases.
• “N” = Population
When the population increases and the quantity of milk demanded Increases.
• “A” = Advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk
When advertising expenditure on processed pocket milk increases the quantity of milk demanded. Increases.

“Y” – Average household Income
When average household income Increases and the quantity of milk demanded Increases.
“Pt” – Price of fresh cow milk
When the price of fresh cow milk Increases the quantity of milk demanded decreases.
∴ Qt = (-Pt) (+Y) (+A) (+N) (- Pc)
(-) means decreases; (+) means Increases
∴ Qt = [- Pt + Y + A +N – Pc]

Question 2.
Calculate the elasticity of demand for the demand schedule by using differential calculus method P = 60 – 0.2Q where price is –

1. Zero
2. ₹20
3. ₹40  Question 3.
The demand and supply functions are Pd = 1600 – x4 and Ps = 2x2 + 400 respectively. Find the consumer’s surplus and producer’s surplus at the equilibrium point?
Pd = 1600 – x2
Ps = 2x2 + 400
Pd = Ps
1600 – xc = 2x2 + 400
⇒ 1600 – x2 – 2x2 – 400 = 0
⇒ -3x2 + 1200 = 0
x2 = 12003 = 4001
x = ±400−−−√
x = 20

When x = 20
Pd = 1600 – x2
= 1600 – (20)2
= 1600 – 400 = 1200
Pd = 1200
Ps = 2x2 + 400
= 2(20)2 + 400 = 2(400) + 400
Ps = 1200
Consumer’s Surplus (CS): Producers Surplus(PS): Question 4.

ACTIVITY

Question 1.
The petrol consumption of your car is 16 Kilometers per litre. Let x be the distance you travel in Kilometers and p the price per litre of petrol in Rupees. Write expressions for the demand for Petrol?
x – Total distance in Km.
p – Price per litre in rupees.
Equation of demand function joining two data points (16, 1) and (8, 2) respectively.  – 8y + 8 = x – 16
x – 16 – 8 + 8y = 0
x + 8y – 24 = 0
x = 24 – 8y
y = p
∴ The demand function x = 24 – 8p
Demand ∝ 1Price

Question 2.
