Question

**A firm’s production function is Q = min(K , 2L), where Q
is the number of units of output produced using K units of capital
and L units of labor. The factor prices are w = 4 (for labor) and r
= 1 (for capital). On an optimal choice diagram with L on the
horizontal axis and K on the vertical axis, draw the isoquant for Q
= 12, indicate the optimal choices of K and L on that isoquant, and
calculate the total cost.**

Answer #1

3. A firm’s production function is Q=min(K, 3L ). Input prices a
re as follows: w=$ 2 and r=$1.
On the optimal choice diagram below, draw the isoquant for Q=12.
Calculate the optimal choice of K and L for this level of output as
well as the total cost.
Then, draw in (with a dotted line) the isocost line consistent
with your Total Cost value.

Suppose a firm’s production function is given by Q = L 1/2 , K
1/2.
a) Suppose the firm has a fixed cost FC=6, the price
of labor is w = 64 and the price of capital is r = 4. Derive the
firm’s total cost function, TC(Q).
b) What is the firm’s marginal cost?
c) Graph the firm’s isoquant for Q = 20 units of
output. On the same graph, sketch the firm’s isocost line
associated with the total...

A firm produces an output with the production function Q=K*L2,
where Q is the number of units of output per hour when the firm
uses K machines and hires L workers each hour. The marginal product
for this production function are MPk =L2 and MPl = 2KL. The factor
price of K is $1 and the factor price of L is $2 per hour.
a. Draw an isoquant curve for Q= 64, identify at least three
points on this curve....

a) Calculate the corresponding cost
function, c(w,r,q).
·q=(min(L,3K)).5
·q=L-1/K
b) Draw a representative isoquant for
q=12
·Q=min(2L,(2(L+K))/3,2K)

Suppose a firm has a production function q = f(L, K) =2L + 4K,
and the factor prices are w = $2 and r = $2. What is the minimum
cost at which the firm is able to produce 20 units of output?
a. $10 b. $30 c. $45 d. $100 e. $50
please explain why

Suppose the production function is given by formula Q = KL.
A) Draw the isoquant curve for Q = 128. (Draw K on the vertical
axis and L on the horizontal axis.)
B) Suppose K = 4. How many units of labor should the firm use if
it wants to produce 128 units of output? Label it point X on the
isoquant curve.
C) Suppose K = 8.How many units of labor should the firm use if
it wants to...

The firms production function is: Q=2L^2/3 K^1/3
A) Suppose the firm wants to determine the cost minimizing
combination for L and K for any given values of q, w, and r. Solve
for the the firms factor demand functions for L and K (i.e. express
the optimal quantity of L and K in terms of W, r and Q)
B) Using these factor demand functions, solve for the firm's
long run cost function.

A firm’s production function is Q(L,K) = K^1/2 + L. The firm
faces a price of labor, w, and a price of capital services, r.
a. Derive the long-run input demand functions for L and K,
assuming an interior solution. If the firm must produce 100 units
of output, what must be true of the relative price of labor in
terms of capital (i.e. w/r) in order for the firm to use a positive
amount of labor? Graphically depict this...

A firm’s production function is q = 10KL with per unit input
prices for labor w = 3 and capital r = 2. Support your answers with
a graph of isoquant-isocosts.
a. Calculate the least-cost input combination of L and K to
produce 60 units of output.
b. Suppose the wage decreases to $2. How does this affect input
use holding constant output at 60?
c. What are the total costs of producing the two output levels
in parts (a)...

Frankie produces computer software. His firm's production
function is Q = 1K + 2L, where Q is the programs, K is capital
employed, and L is the labor used. If Frankie faces factor prices
of Pk=5 and Pl =5, the cheapest way to produce Q = 90 is:
Part 1: By using how many units of capital? ____________
Part 2: By using how many units of labor? ____________
If Frankie faces factor prices of Pk=7 and Pl=21, the cheapest
way...
