Under Output(kg):
0, 15, 35, 60, 85

Under variable cost($):
0, 30, 55, 75, 90

Under Total cost ($):
15, 45, 70, 90, 105

Under Total revenue($):
0, 30, 70, 120, 170

at output 0; marginal revenue (M. R) 
= $0.00

at output 15; M.R = TR2-TR1
=30 - 0 = $30.0

at output 35; M.R = TR3 - TR2
70 - 30 = $40.0

at output 60; M.R = TR4 - TR3
=120 - 70 = $50.0

at output 85; M.R = TR5 - TR4
= 170 - 120 = $50.0

at output 0, marginal cost (mc) = $0.00

at output 15, mc = TC2 - TC1 
= 45 - 15 = $30.00

at output 35, mc = TC3 - TC2 = 70 - 45 = $25.0

at output 60, mc = TC4 - TC3
= 90 - 70 = $20.0

at output 85, mc = TC5 - TC4
= 85 - 60 = $25.0

(i) The firm broke even at output 60kg. 
(ii) The firm made the highest profit at output level 85kg. 
(iii) The firm attained equilibrium at output 35kg.

The demand schedule, in economics, is a table of the quantity demanded of a good at different price levels. Given the price level, it is easy to determine the expected quantity demanded.

The law of demand states that the higher the price the lower the quantity demanded and the low the price the higher the quantity demanded

(i) Competitive demand; Demand is said to be competitive when a commodity is wanted to satisfy a want in place of another similar commodity

(ii) Derived demand; This is a situation in which a commodity is wanted not for its immediate satisfaction of want but because of the demand for another commodity

(iii) Joint Demand; When two or more commodities are wanted to satisfy one want at the same time

(iv) Composite demand; Demand is said to be composite when a commodity is wanted to satisfy different wants for instance, palm oil may be demanded for cooking food,manufacturing of soap and pomade


A tax is a compulsory levy or payment made by each eligible citizen towards the expenditure of the state.It is levied by the government without regard to the specific benefits that individual tax payer may receive.

Progressive tax: It takes higher percentage of income from people with larger income eg PAYE(pay as you earn) system of taxation which is being in vogue since 1950s in Nigeria
Proportional tax: It is the amount of money that is directly proportional to the consumer's income.The rate of tax is the same for all income
Progressive tax: It takes larger percentage of income from people with lower incomes.Indirect taxes for instance which are fixed sums added to the prices of things purchased by consumers irrespective of their incomes

(i) Equity: Every person should pay to the government according to his ability to pay,that is in proportion of the income he get under the protection of the state
