explain the implications of large number of sellers in a perfectly competitive market

There exist a large number of buyers and sellers in a perfect competitive market. The number of sellers is so large that no individual firm owns the control over the market price of the commodity. Thus, firms have no role to play other than supplying the required output at the existing market price and therefore a firm is a price taker and not a price maker.The implication for this is that no individual firm can influence the market price and all firms sell their individual output at a uniform market price.

The implication is that each seller in the market will have a revenue curve where Average revenue will always be equal to Marginal Revenue , i.e. no seller can earn more than normal profit.
