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.

MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION, EFFICIENCY

A monopolistically competitive firm generally produces less output and charges a higher price than would be the case for a perfectly competitive firm. In particular, the price charged by a monopolistically competitive firm is higher than the marginal cost of production, which violates the efficiency condition that price equals marginal cost. A monopolistically competitive firm is inefficient because it has market control and faces a negatively-sloped demand curve.
