c) What is his economic profit?

d) What normal profit does he need to earn so that he is doing equally as well with his resources as his next best alternative use for those resources?

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

(A). Explicit Cost = 3(30,000) + 15000 + 25000 + 3000 + (150,000 * 10/100)

= 148,000

(B). Implicit Cost = 2000 + 75000

= $ 77000

(C). Accounting Profit = Total Revenue - Total cost (explicit)

= 350,000 - 148000

= $ 202,000

(D). Economic Profit =Total Revenue - Total cost (Explicit + Implicit)

= 350,000 - (148,000 + 77000)

= $ 125,000
