1. Suppose the marginal product of labor is 8 and the marginal product of capital is 2. If the wage rate is $4 and the price of capital is $2, then in order to minimize costs the firm should use A. more capital and less labor. B. more labor and less capital. C. three times more capital than labor. D. none of the statements associated with this question are correct. 2. Suppose the production function is Q = min {K, 2L}. How much output is produced when 4 units of labor and 9 units of capital are employed? 3. Suppose the production function is given by Q = 3K + 4L. What is the average product of capital when 10 units of capital and 10 units of labor are employed? 4. Suppose the production function is given by Q = 3K + 4L. What is the marginal product of capital when 10 units of capital and 10 units of labor are employed? 5. Suppose the production function is given by Q = min{K, L}. How much output is produced when 10 units of labor and 9 units of capital are employed? A. 0. B. 4. C. 9. D. 13. 6. Suppose the production function is given by Q = min {K, L}. How much output is produced when 4 units of labor and 9 units of capital are employed? 7. Suppose the production function is given by Q = 3K + 4L. What is the marginal product of capital when 5 units of capital and 10 units of labor are employed? 8. Suppose the production function is given by Q = 3K + 4L. What is the average product of capital when 5 units of capital and 10 units of labor are employed?

9. For the cost function C(Q) = 100 + 2Q + 3Q 2 , the marginal cost of producing 2 units of output is A. 2. B. 3. C. 12. D. 14. 10. For the cost function C(Q) = 100 + 2Q + 3Q 2 , the average fixed cost of producing 2 units of output is 11. For the cost function C(Q) = 100 + 2Q + 3Q 2 , the total variable cost of producing 2 units of output is 12. If a firm's production function is Leontief and the wage rate goes up the

    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.
