(20 points) A firm has a Cobb-Douglas production function Q = L 2 K 2 . The marginal products for this production function are: MP L = 2LK 2 , MP K = 2L 2 K. Suppose the price of labor is w = 10 per unit and the price of capital is r = 1 per unit. Find the cost-minimizing input choice if the firm wants to produce 121,000 units of output....
