1.
Assume a competitive market in the short run for a firm’s products.
Assume a standard cost function.
On three blank pieces of white paper
provided, draw three graphs.
On the first graph, draw the marginal and
average cost and the marginal and average revenue curves (4 curves total).
On the second graph, relate the respective marginal and average curves to
their total cost and revenue curves.
On the third graph, relate the total
curves to a graph of the profits.
Label all points that relate each of the
three graphs to each other.
