The total amount of bogie boards produced by these workers is given as the total output (TP). Labor (wor kers per wee k) Total Output (TP L ) (per week) Marginal Output (MP L ) Average Output (AP L ) Total Value Product (TVP L) Marginal Value Product (MVP L) Total Cost of Inputs (TC) Marginal Cost of Inputs (MC) Total Profit or Loss 0 0 1 40 2 100 3 140 4 170 5 190 6 200 (a) First fill in the TP L , MP L and AP L in the table above.

(b) What is the relationship between the average product and the marginal product when SuzeQ’s produces less than 100 bogie boards? (c) What is the relationship between the average product and the marginal product when Su- zeQ’s produces more than 100 bogie boards? Now, suppose that SuzeQ’s Bogie Boards has a fixed, overhead capital cost of $200 per week no matter how many bogie boards are produced, and that labor costs $600 per week. (d) Fill in the TVP L , MVP L , TC, MC and Total Profit or Loss in the table on the first page. (e) Assuming the price of bogie boards is $20 per board, if the SuzeQ’s acts to maximize profit, how many boards will be produced? How many workers will be employed? What will the SuzeQ's profit be at this output level? Why? (State the key condition used in your analysis below). (f)
