1.3. A small perfectly competitive producer of cheddar cheese has a short run production function given by q = 10L 1/3 , where q is the number of kilos of cheese produced per day and L is the number of workers hired per day. In the short run, there are 27 units of capital and the price of each unit of capital equipment is $8 per unit. The price of labour is $4 per worker per day. This information can be used in answering questions 1 through 3 on this test. 1. When L = 8, what is the marginal product of labour for this firm? (A) 0 (B) 1 (C) 5/6 (D) 6/5 (E) 4 (F) 1/4 (G) 3 (H) 1/3 (I) 5 (J) 1/5 (K) 10 (L) 1/10 (M) 15 (N) 1/15 (O) 20 (P) 1/20 (Q) 2 (R) 1/2 (S) none of the above 2. When L = 125, what is the marginal cost of production for this firm? (A) $0 (B) $.03 (C) $.13 (D) $.25 (E) 1 (F) $2 (G) $3 (H) $5 (I) $7.50 (J) $10 (K) $12.50 (L) $13 (M) $17.25 (N) $20 (O) $30 (P) $40 (Q) $50 (R) $70 (S) none of the above 3. At what value of L (i.e., at what number of workers-to the nearest whole number) does average cost reach its minimum for this firm? (A) 0 (B) 1 (C) 3 (D) 5 (E) 8 (F) 10 (G) 12 (H) 15 (I) 18 (J) 19 (K) 21 (L) 24 (M) 27 (N) 30 (O) 32 (P) 36 (Q) 39 (R) 40 (S) 42 (T) 45 (U) 48 (V) 50 (W) 54 (X) 60 (Y) 64 (Z) none of the above 4.6. A perfectly competitive firm has short run costs given by TC = 2q 2 + 100q + 200, where fixed costs are $72 (already included in the total cost function). This information can be used to answer questions 4-6 on this test. 4. When q = 144, by how much is the average variable cost of production less than the average total cost of production? (A)
