51. A monopolistically competitive firm is producing an output level where marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost. This firm should ______ quantity and ______ price to increase profit or reduce losses.
Wouldn't the answer be decrease quantity and increase price?

52. A monopolistically competitive firm is producing an output level where marginal revenue is less than marginal cost. This firm should _____ quantity and _____ price to increase profit or reduce loss.

50) you are right

51) No. if MR>MC, the monopolist should increase quantity and decrease price.

52) No. this is just the opposit of 51.

Draw a graph of a monopolist. for 51, select a point where MR>MC. What direction is the optimal point with respect to quantity and price?
