2. Define demand function and explain the impact of price of complements and price of substitutes on demand function.
3. Compare and contrast Economies of Scale and Economies of Scope. Explain why it is important for managers to understand Economies of Scale.
4. Consider a monopolist facing the following demand and cost curves.
   P = 50 - 2Q                 C = 25+10Q
   (Hint:  Total demand at any point P will be the summation of two quantities)
   Suppose the firm is able to separate its customers in two distinct markets with the following demand functions.
    P1 = 40 - 2.5Q1           P2 = 90 - 10Q2
    From the above equation calculate the following:
