Unformatted text preview: q boomerangs (i.e., what is the rms cost function)? (c) What is the protmaximizing choice of q as a function of the price of labor, q * ( w )? (d) How does the protmaximizing quantity change in response to changes in w ? (e) Directly verify that this change is also given by the formula dq * ( w ) dw = [ f ( f 1 ( q * ( w )))] 2 wf ( f 1 ( q * ( w ))) we derived in the rst lecture. 1 3. Nicholson and Snyder problem 2.6. 4. Maximize the following: (a) 4 + x 1 3 x 2 3 x 1 x 2 x 2 1 4 x 2 2 . (b) 4+ x 1 3 x 2 3 x 1 x 2 x 2 1 4 x 2 2 subject to the constraint x 1 = 2 x 2 . (c) x 1 + x 2 subject to the constraint 1 x 1 + 2 x 2 = 2. (d) x 1 x 2 subject to x 1 + 3 x 2 = 4. (e) log x 1 + log x 2 subject to x 1 + 3 x 2 = 4. (Note that log is the natural log, i.e., base e ). (f) Is there a connection between your answer to parts 4(d) and 4(e) ? 2...
