Bob rents a building for $30,000 per month and rents a machine for $20,000 a month. Those are his fixed costs. His variable cost is given in the accompanying table. fixed cost variable cost total cost qty. of DVDs total avg. total avg. total avg. marginal cost 0 $50,000 – – $0 – – – – – – 1,000 $50,000 $5,000 2,000 $50,000 $8,000 3,000 $50,000 $9,000 4,000 $50,000 $14,000 5,000 $50,000 $20,000 6,000 $50,000 $33,000 7,000 $50,000 $49,000 8,000 $50,000 $72,000 9,000 $50,000 $99,000 10,000 $50,000 $150,000 a.
