Trisha's Fashion Boutique is considering a profit sharing arrangement with her employees.  Currently, the employees receive an annual bonus.  Trisha can sell all the output she produces for \$150 per unit.  Trisha's total cost function (including bonus payments to employees) is: TC(Q) = 75Q + 2.5Q2.   The marginal cost function is: MC(Q) = 75 + 5Q.  The profit sharing plan would pay employees 30% of profits.  However, due to greater cost saving initiatives from employees, Trisha's total cost function becomes: TC(Q) = 50Q + 2Q2.  The relevant marginal cost function becomes: MC(Q) = 50 + 4Q.  Which plan offers Trisha the greatest profits for herself?
