UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN Economics 101 Spring 2008 Problem Set 6 Solutions 1. a) The marginal product of the 4 th worker equals 4 It is the change in Q caused by adding the 4 th worker so it is 16-12=4 b) AP= Q/L = 12/3= 4 c) Technically inefficient point is point c since it is below the production curve, i.e. you can produce 12 units of output with 4 workers (point b) but instead you produce way less. Unattainable point is point a since it is above the production curve. With 4 workers you can never produce more than 12 units of output with the given technology. (Remember that all the points on the production curve give you the maximum possible output you can produce for each given input level (technically efficient points). 2. a) Fill out the missing values at the table below. Columns notation: quantity (Q), total cost (TC), fixed cost (FC), variable cost (VC), average fixed cost (AFC), average variable cost (AVC), average total cost (ATC), and marginal cost (MC).

### 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.
