1 of 5

Marginal revenue (MR)

Marginal revenue is always twice as steep as average revenue.

mMR/2=mAR   ∴   mMR=2(mAR)


2 of 5

Total revenue (TR)

Total revenue always rises and falls overtime (arch)

in order to sell more, price must fall.

3 of 5

relation between MR & TR

As long as marginal revenue is positive,

Total revenue is not decreasing.
