Consider a firm that uses capital and labor as inputs and sells 5.000 units of output per year at the going maket price of \$10. Also assume that total labor costs to the firm are \$45.000 annually. Assume further that the total capital stock of the firm is currently worth \$100.000, that the return available to investors with comparable risks is 10 percent annually, and that there is no depreciation. Which ones are explicit costs? Is there any implicit cost? Is this a profitable firm? Explain briefly your answer. 2. Two former METU students worked in an investment bank at a salary of \$60.000 each for 2 years after they graduated. Together they saved \$50.000. After 2 years, they decided to quit their jobs and start a business designing Web sites. They used the \$50.000 to buy computer equipment, desks, and chairs. For the next 2 years, they took in \$40.000 in revenue each year, paid themselves \$10.000 annually each, and rented an office for \$18.000 per year. Prior to the investment, their \$50.000 was in bonds earning interest at a rate of 10 percent. Are they now earning economic profits? Explain your answer. 3.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
