Based on the** profit functions** of **Apple **and **Samsung**, their output if they **successfully collude **will be** 65 units. **

<h3>What is the total output if there is collusion?</h3>

Because **Apple** and **Samsung** are two major producers of **smartphones**, **collusion** between them would **increase** their **demand **and allow them more **control** over their pricing.

<h3 />

In order to find out their **total output** after collusion, solve for their **profit functions** first.

**Apple profit function:**

= Price - (5Q - Q²)

= 200Q - Q² - Q(apple)Q(samsung) - 5(apple) - Q(apple)²

= 195Q(apple) - Q(apple)Q(samsung) - 2Qapple²

**Samsung profit function**:

= Price - (5Q - Q²)

= 195Q(samsung) - Q(apple)Q(samsung) - 2Qsamsung²

When **differentiated**, the formulas become:

2Qs + 4Qa = 195

4Qa + 8Qs = 390

After **differentiating** their profit functions, solve **simultaneously** to find out what their quantities would be to make profit.

This can then be solved **simultaneously**:

2Qs + 4Qa = 195

4Qa + 8Qs = 390

-6Qs = -195

Qs = 195/6

Qs = 32.5 units

Qa will be:

2Qs + 4Qa = 195

4Qa = 130

**Qa = 32.5 units **

Add up these units to find the **total units** between them.

The **total units** are:

= 32.5 + 32.5

**= 65 units **
