price of good measured on x-axis, flatter budget line. Higher price of good on x-axis, steeper budget line. Consumer equilibrium is located where the indifference curve is tangent to the budget line. 3 things change the budget line: change in price of product A or B or income. Stocks are actual shares of the ownership of a company. Usually pays dividends to stockholders. Infinite life. Gain: dividends or capital gains. PE ratio =price/earnings.

ATC=AFC+AVC or TC/Q=FC/Q+VC/Q. MC=change in total cost/change in quantity. MP L =change in quantity/change in labor. MR=TR 2 -TR 1 . When Q=0, VC=0 and TC=FC. Graph: MC curve crosses through ATC curve at min. Exemplifies the Avg/Marginal relationship - if MC>ATC, then ATC will rise. Vertical distance b/w ATC and AVC=AFC. This amt decreases as we increase the quantity. Min for MC comes before min for AVC, which comes before min for ATC. All

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
