 TOTAL REVENUE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: The revenue received by a monopolistically competitive firm for the sale of its output. Total revenue is one of two parts a monopoly needs to calculate economic profit, the other is total cost. In general, total revenue is the price received for selling a good times the quantity of the good sold at that price. Because a monopolistically competitive firm has some degree of market control and faces a negatively-sloped demand curve, it charges a different price for a different quantities. If a monopoly sells a relatively small quantity, it charges a relatively high price. If it sells a relatively smaller quantity, it charges a relatively lower price. However, once the monopolistically competitive firms determines its' price/quantity combination, total revenue calculation is relatively straightforward, multiple the price times the quantity.

An example of how the scientific method works:
• You suspect that a relationship exists between course grades and where students are seated in the class.
• Specifically, you think that students who sit closer to the front of the class receive higher the grades.
Three forms of our hypothesis:
General:
A More Specific Form:
• If students sit on the front row, then they receive As-- if they sit on the second row, then they receive Bs-- etc.
Using An Equation:
• G = a + bD, where b is negative, meaning students seated closer (small D) receive higher grades (large G).
• Key is that we can compare hypothesis with data.

PLASTIC MONEY

A slang phrase for credit cards, especially when such cards used to make purchases. The "plastic" portion of this term refers to the plastic construction of credit cards, as opposed to paper and metal of currency. The "money" portion is an erroneous reference to credit cards as a form of money, which they are not. Although credit cards do facilitate transactions, because they are a liability rather than an asset, they are not money and not part of the economy's money supply.
