at prices Rs 10 and Rs 15 per unit of output respectively. The joint cost function
of the firm is provided by
C=4qt 2+2q2
2 +4qlq2
obtain profit maximizing output levels ql and q2 and maximum profit.
(c) provided the national income model

T dY d
C a b Y T a b
Y C I G
where Y, C, T, 10 and Go denote income, consumption, income tax, investment
and government expenditure respectively. Solve the above model using Cramer's
rule.
(d) Solve the subsequent

with initial condition y(0) = 5.
(e) Let the demand function of a firm under monopolistic competition be provided by
P = 118 3Q+4.A
where P is price, Q is volume and A is advertisement expenditure. If the total
cost function is provided by C = 4Q2 +10Q + A, obtain the value of A, Q and P that
maximizes the profit of the firm.
4. ans any 2 of the following: 12×2=24

What is the value of the game?
(ii) What is Nash equilibrium? discuss with a suitable example.
(b) provided the demand and supply functions for cobweb model:
Qdt = 10 2Pt
Qst = 5 +3Pt1
obtain the intertemporal equilibrium price and also determine whether you will get
stable equilibrium.
(c) A producer desires to minimize the cost of production
C= 16K +4L
where K and L are capital and labour respectively subject to the production
function provided
Q K L 2

obtain out the equilibrium combination of inputs (K and L) in order to minimize the
cost of production when output Q=40.
