I'm studying problem that requires me to calculate social welfare in a monopoly setting.
But I dont know what social welfare is, and I can't find it in my book or by googling. What am I asked to compute?

By social welfare your professor probably means total economic surplus which is the sum of consumer's surplus and producer's surplus.
