The farm has basically to choose what output it must produce to maximise proﬁts. within the case validated by means of the graph, it's 3,000 lots, which the farmer is aware might be offered for $350 in keeping with ton. during this instance, the farm is promoting wheat for far greater than the price of generating it. via promoting 3,000 plenty at $350 in step with ton, the farm’s profit is $1. 05 million; its expenses, despite the fact that, are $450,000 ($150 × 3,000 tons).

The excessive point of proﬁts might act as an incentive for brand spanking new ﬁrms to go into the undefined. the shortcoming of boundaries to access in an ideal industry permits any ﬁrm to go into the marketplace simply.
