c.In the long term will the price remain at £280? Explain your reasoning, and if the price changes explain the process that causes that price to change. Graphically illustrate the process [3 marks]
d. If there are no changes to costs or industry demand what will be the price and firm output in the long run equilibrium. [2 marks]
