Question 2 Suppose a production function f ( z 1 , z 2 ) has the following properties. 1. The marginal product of input i only depends on the level of input i , not on that of the other input. 2. Changing both inputs by a factor of α 0 changes output by α 2 . The general form of a production function that satisfies both conditions is 10 points f ( z 1 , z 2 ) = Use a, b, . . . to denote general parameters. The parameters must satisfy the following conditions: No detailed proof needed. 2
