Does the law oF diminishing marginal productivity oF labor and capital, hold For this production Function? (c) VeriFy that the rate oF change oF MP L with respect to (w.r.t.) K is the same as the rate oF change oF MP K w.r.t. L . [ This is an application of Young’s Theorem ] Q3. IF a frm spends $ a per unit oF output on advertising then it can sell q units oF output at a price given by p = 100-2 q + 8 a 1 2 . ±urther, in order to produce q units oF output it costs the frm 4 q + q 2 . (a) Find the proft ±unction ( π ) ±or the frm. (b) I± the frm maximizes profts, how much will it spend on advertising and how much output will it produce? Remember to check the SOC’s....
