Bonus Question
A company makes a video game system and video games, and is willing to sell
the systems at below what it costs to make them, knowing that they can make
plenty of profit on the games. The games are backward compatible with older
systems, so that, even if they sell no new systems, they will still have some sales
of the new games.

The profit,

P , in dollars, on sales of the new games and systems, is given by


P=20 g100 s0.01 g s ,

where

is the number of games sold and

is the number of new game

systems sold.
(a) If the company sells no new systems, how much profit do they make per new
game sold? [2]
(b) How many new systems would the company have to sell before they start
losing money regardless of how many new games they sell?
[3]
Marginal profit means the instantaneous rate of change of the profit. The
marginal profit, per new game sold, is the instantaneous rate of change of the
profit, with respect to the number of new games sold, holding constant the
number of new systems sold.
(c) If the company has fixed sales of $250, 000 new games system, what is the
marginal profit, per new game sold, when the number of new games sold is 1,
000, 000?
[3]
(d) If the company immediately sells 10, 000 new games, and never sells another
one, what is the marginal profit per new game system sold, when the number
of new games sold is 10, 000?
