Microeconomics - monopoly vs perfect competition

posted by .

This is a good and fun question that I am still scratching my head oever.

We know monopoly's profit maximisation is MC=MR. We also know that perfect competition's profit maximising criteria is such that P=MC.

Just what exactly does this mean?
I know for one that, the firm tries to maxmise profit as a whole and not just per unit profit.
