ECON 331 Written Assignment 4 due in class Oct. 14 1. Suppose a firm has a total cost function given by C y ay 1/2 by 3/2 where a and b are positive constants. Draw a sketch of the AC and MC curves (in the same figure) for this firm. Your sketch should show where the minimum points are on each of these curves. These points can be found by putting the derivative equal to 0 or in the case of AC putting AC MC . Show in your sketch where these curves are
