  2. Sales revenue maximising = 6 units, but the firm would make a loss of £20,000.

  3. Efficiency at profit max -  ATC is £52,500 – the lowest possible average total cost is £50,000, hence there is a loss of productive efficiency. The price, of £70,000, is greater than the marginal cost, of £40,000, hence there is also allocative inefficiency.
