1 The Colorado College Department of Economics and Business Block 7 Econ 207 HW 6 ans. 1. (a) MP L =dq/dL = 1; MP K = dq/dK = 2 RTS = MP L /MP K = ½ Thus the isoquant has constant RTS. It is downward sloping and linear. Foe every unit of labor, half the amount of capital is employed. (b) Since RTS = ½; w /v = 1. RTS < w/v MP L /W < MP K /L The manufacturer will use only K . For q = 20, K = 10; q = 40, K = 20; q = 60, K = 30. The manufacturer’s expansion path is simply the K axis . (c) Now RTS = ½; w /v = 1/3 with v = $3. RTS > w/v MP L /w > MP K /v Here the manufacturer will use only L . For q = 20, L = 20; q = 40, L = 40; q = 60, L = 60. Now the manufacturer’s expansion path is the L axis . 2. (a) q = 900
