If your weekly variable cost is $40,000 and your weekly total cost is $50,000, the average: a. Fixed cost of production is $20 Chapter 12 1. If a machine cost $50,000 initially and is expected to last for 20 years but is worth $60,000 after one year because it is in short supply, an economist most likely would say that: a. during the first year the machine had no cost; it provides an implicit revenue of $10,000 to the firm. 2. Economies of scale account for what part of a long-run average total cost curve? a. Downward-sloping 3. As you move down an isoquant: a. production remains technically efficient. 4. When carmakers began to cut costs of producing cars by designing the chassis, engine, and transmissions so that different models could be produced on the same assembly line, production costs fell $240 per car. This change caused car makers’ short-run average cost curves to: a. Shift Down 5. An entrepreneur would be least likely to develop a product if expected average total cost is: a. $65 and expected price is $40. 6. ABC Co. produces only gadgets, and XYZ Co. produces both gadgets and widgets. If ABC Co. produces gadgets at the same average total cost as XYZ Co., economies of: a. Scope are not present in XYZ 7. Refer to the graph shown. The shift from SATC 3 to SATC 4 reflects: a. Diseconomies of scale 8. Refer to the graph shown. The cost of 5 units of labor and 6 2/3 units of machines is the same as the cost of: a. 7.5 units of labor and 5 units of machines 9. Refer to the graph shown. A firm that produces 900 units of output using the plant size associated with SATC 3 minimizes:

If the firm wishes to double output from 500 to 1,000: a. average total costs will remain the same. 12. The upward-sloping part of the long-run average cost curve is explained by: a. Diseconomies of scale 13. Refer to the graph shown. The least-cost method of producing 1,000 units of output is shown at point: a. D 14.

15. Economies of scale occur when a firm's long-run average total cost curve is: a. Downward-sloping 16. A firm can use 5 workers and 10 machines, 7 workers and 9 machines, or 8 workers and 9 machines to produce four cars. If each worker costs $200 and each machine is rented for $50, the economically efficient input combination is: a. 5 workers and 10 machines 17.

    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.
