economic task

Project Description:

under the terms of the current contractual agreement, burger queen
(bq) is entitled to 20 percent of the revenue earned by each of its
franchises. bq’s best-selling item is the slopper (it slops out of the
bun). bq supplies the ingredients for the slopper (bun, mystery meat,
etc.) at cost to the franchise. the franchisee’s average cost per
slopper (including ingredients, labor cost, and so on) is $.80. at a
particular franchise restaurant, weekly demand for sloppers is given
by p  3.00  q/800.
a. if bq sets the price and weekly sales quantity of sloppers, what
quantity and price would it set? how much does bq receive? what is
the franchisee’s net profit?
b. suppose the franchise owner sets the price and sales quantity. what
price and quantity will the owner set? (hint: remember that the
owner keeps only $.80 of each extra dollar of revenue earned.) how
does the total profit earned by the two parties compare to their total
profit in part (a)?
c. now, suppose bq and an individual franchise owner enter into an
agreement in which bq is entitled to a share of the franchisee’s
profit. will profit sharing remove the conflict between bq and
the franchise operator? under profit sharing, what will be the
price and quantity of sloppers? (does the exact split of the profit
affect your answer? explain briefly.) what is the resulting total
d. profit sharing is not widely practiced in the franchise business. what
are its disadvantages relative to revenue sharing?
