4. Use the demand schedule that is presented in the table below to determine the optimal rate of production and price when the firm has the following marginal cost function: MC = 1 + Q. (Hint: the firm should produce the product as long as MR is greater than or equal to MC)

Quantity 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
