(b) If this industry were perfectly competitive instead, what would be the quantity produced, QC , and the price charged, P C ?
(c) Compare the overall surplus under competition with the overall surplus under a monopoly. find out CS and P S under both scenarios. find out the deadweight loss associated with the monopolization of this industry.
