The firm is a price taker for both the input and output markets. Q = K0.4L0.4 P =10 w =1 r = 3 Q = 10 (only for the relevant technique) 32. Assuming that the isoquant is tangent to the budget line, what value of L in terms of K do you get when setting the marginal rate of technical substitution equal to the ratio of the input costs? [Pen. 0] A. L= 3K B. L= (1 / 3)K C. L= (3 / 4)K D. L= (4 / 3)K E. Abstain 33. Use the cost minimisation technique to find the conditional factor demands for this firm: [Pen. 0.5] A. K* = 11.6 and L* = 34.7 B. K* = 12.6 and L* = 37.9 C. K* = 10.3 and L* = 30.8 D. K* = 30.8 and L* = 10.3 E. Abstain 34. Usi...
