Marginal Analysis: Definitions X – Activity level of an alternative C(X) – Cost of alternative TV(X) – Total value of alternative (in same units as cost) NV(X) – Net value of alternative NV(X) = TV(X) – C(X) MNV(X) – Marginal net value MNV(X) = = - dx d(NV) dC dx d(TV) dx

Marginal Net Value Decision Rule In the “profitable” segment If MNV > 0, Increase activity level If MNV < 0, Decrease activity level If MNV = 0, Activity level is optimal MNV = d(TV) / dx – dC/dx For Option B, with V T = value of each TR/sec, C(N) = 1007 + 20N; dC / dN = 20 TV(N) = V T (880N – 40N 2 ); d(TV) / dN = V T (880 –80N) 20 = V T (880 – 80N max ) N max = (880 V T – 20) / 80 V T = 11 – 1/(4V T ) ≤ 2245
