Compute price and quantity in equilibrium, Microeconomics

In the city of Gelato the market for ice cream is perfectly competitive. Aggregate demand for ice cream is:

D(p) = 1200-25p

where p is the price for one cone of ice cream. All ice cream producers in the city have the same total cost function:

C(qi) =10qi

where qi represents the number of ice cream cones firm i produces. Assume that the market is in equilibrium.

a) Derive the firms' marginal and average cost.

b) Compute price and quantity in equilibrium.
