C1Q1 = F1Q1 + V1Q1 The lowest point on ATC is C2. Around this point ATC remains constant for a moment. To the left of C2 ATC falls (C1C2) and to its right ATC rises (C2C3). ATC thus shows the three stages of cost behavior, namely, the Diminishing, the Minimum (Constant) and the Increasing Cost Phases. The lowest point on ATC is C2 2
