The equations are stated below.
Assume Firm 1 is the leader.
Q1 = (a + c2 -2c1)/2b = 300/6 = 50
Q2 = (a - c2)/2b - Q1/2 = 50 - 50/2 = 25
Here we see that Firm 1 being the leader has an output of 50 which the other firm follows and reaches equilibrium by producing a much lesser output of 25
Price = 600 - 150 - 75 = 375
Profit_1stFirm = (P - c1)*Q1 = 75*50 = $3750
Profit_2ndFirm = (P - c2)*Q2 = 75*25 = $1875
