MARGINAL REVENUE CURVE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: A curve that graphically represents the relation between marginal revenue received by a monopolistically competitive firm for selling its output and the quantity of output sold. The marginal revenue curve reflects the degree of market control held by a firm. For a monopolistically competitive firm with some market control, but not a whole lot, the marginal revenue curve is negatively-sloped but relatively elastic.

A: The common notation for the "intercept" term of an equation specified as Y = a + bX. Mathematically, the a-intercept term indicates the value of the Y variable when the value of the X variable is equal to zero. Theoretically, the a-intercept is frequently used to indicate exogenous or independent influences on the Y variable, that is, influences that are independent of the X variable. For example, if Y represents consumption and X represents national income, a measures autonomous consumption expenditures.
