1. Assume the quantity of envelopes licked per hour by Sticky Gums, Inc., is:

q = 10,000 ﻿﻿

where L is the number of laborers hired per hour by the firm. Assume further that the envelope licking business is perfectly competitive with a market price of 1 cent per envelope.

A. How much labor would be hired at a competitive wage of $10? What about$5? $2? Use these results to sketch a demand curve for labor. B. Assume that Sticky Gums hires its labor at an hourly wage of$10 what quantity of envelopes will be licked when the price of a licked envelope is 2 cents? What about 5 cents? 10 cents?
