Assume the production function q = 16K .5 N .25 represents a family farm. In this case, the family owns acres of land (N) that it can farm or rent each year. The rental rate for the land is r. The family can also lease machinery time from the local cooperative equipment shed. The charge for the machine use is v. The family’s harvest in thousands of bushels is represented by q. 1. What is the cost equation of this production function? (7 points) MPk = 8K -. 5 N . 25 MPn = 4K . 5 N -.75 v/r = 2N/K K=2Nr/v N=vK/2r Q=16(2Nr/v)^.5 N^.25 Q=2^4.5 * N^.75 * (r/v)^.5 N^.75 = Q*v^.5 / (2^4.5 * r^.5) N^(3/4)=Q*v^(1/2)/(2^9/2 * r^(1/2))
