Output
(Units)

Solution

Output
(Units)
Total Revenue
(Rs)
Total Cost
(Rs)
MR = TRn - TRn-1 MC = TCn- TCn-1
1 16 14 16 14
2 30 27 14 13
3 42 39 12 12
4 52 49 10 10
5 60 61 8 12

The firm would be in equilibrium when following two conditions are satisfied:

1) MR = MC

2) MC is rising or the MC curve cuts the MR curve from below.

Thus, at 4 units of output, the firm is in equilibrium as both the conditions are getting satisfied at this level.
