Concrete blocks are produced by thousands of small producers in a perfectly competitive market. Each producer faces total costs of TC = Q3 – 6Q2 + 20Q + 300, where Q is the quantity of blocks, in hundreds. The corresponding marginal cost curve is given by MC = 3Q2 – 12Q + 20. What is the minimum price sellers must receive if they are to produce any concrete blocks at all?
