5.DOWNLOAD AND PRINT GRAPHING TEMPLATE (available in the homework 3 instructions). This template already shows the outcome from scenario A. You will be adding results from scenario B to these graphs.(2 points) Using Scenario B/Table B, go to Graph 1. Label the new profit maximizing Q and L combination on the production function as point B.Table for Individual Question FeedbackPoints Earned:2.0/2.0Correct Answer(s):6.(3 points) Using Scenario B/Table B, go to Graph 2 and draw this firm’s newMRP curve (remember that MRP = P* MPL, and since price changed, we know we have a new MRP curve!). Shade in the new area of profit. Also label the new profit maximizing point as letter B.Table for Individual Question FeedbackPoints Earned:3.0/3.0

Correct Answer(s):7.(3 points) Using Scenario B/Table B, draw this firm’s Supply curve on Graph 3. You should construct a supply curve as we did in lecture with point A representing the original price and output combination from scenario A (original price was $20 combined with the profit maximizing Q of 28) and point B representing the price and output combination after the change in economic conditions in Scenario B (price rose to $22, and the profit maximizing Q you found in your answer for #2 above). Connect the two points and label your supply curve.
