Jackson discovers that he can produce 200 pounds of pork by feeding his hogs the following
combinations of feed:
Combinations Quantity of Corn
(pounds)
Quantity of
Potatoes (pounds))
A 500 1650
B 550 1460
C 600 1280
D 650 1120
E 700 1060
F 750 1020
If the price of a pound of potatoes is half the price of a pound of corn, and corn sells for P
dollars per pound, what is the cost of each combination? What is the minimum-cost
combination? Plot isocost curves and the isoquant, showing the cost-minimizing
combination. (10 points total – 2 points each for the first two questions, and 6 points for
isoquant and isocost curves)
