Macroeconomics 314 Assignment 4 Numerical Problems: 3. a. Year K N Y Capital-Labor Ratio Output/Worker 1 200 1000 617 0.2 0.617 2 250 1000 660 0.25 0.66 3 250 1250 771 0.2 0.617 4 300 1200 792 0.25 0.66 Although the total output increases from year 1 to year 3, the capital-labor ratio and output per worker remain constant. The same holds true for year 2 and year 4. Production function per worker: y=(K^0.3*N^0.7)/N b. Year K N Y Capital-Labor Ratio Output/Worker 1 200 1000 1231 0.2 1.231 2 250 1000 1316 0.25 1.316 3 250 1250 1574 0.2 1.259 4 300 1200 1609 0.25 1.341 The total output increases from year 1 to year 3, and the capital-labor ratio and output per worker slightly increase. The same holds true for year 2 and year 4. Production function per worker: y=(K^0.3*N^0.8)/N 5. a. y=f(k)=3k^.5
