1. The following table shows data for a simple production function.

See below:

 Capital (K) Labor (L) Total product (TP) Average Product (AP) Marginal Product (MP) 10 - - 10 1 5 5 5 10 2 15 7.5 10 10 3 30 10 15 10 4 50 12.5 20 10 5 75 15 25 10 6 85 14.2 10 10 7 90 12.9 5 10 8 92 11.5 2 10 9 92 10.2 10 10 90 9 -2
1. Graph the three functions (put total product on one graph and marginal and average products on another.)

2. Relationships

Class discussion on the relationships among total, average, and marginal costs. Using the same data from the previous exercise and a wage rate specified by the instructor, compute the marginal cost curve based on the marginal products.

The following table shows data for the simple production function used in Question 1. Capital costs this firm $20 per unit, and labor costs$10 per worker. Ive attached the data. Please see attachment Week3DiscussionQuestion2.

1. Graph your results, putting TFC, TVC, and TC on one graph and AFC, AVC, ATC, and MC on another.

1. Economies of Scale

Class discussion on long-run production, returns to scale, and the corresponding long-run average cost concept of economies of scale.

Please provide responses to the following questions:

A firm experiences increasing returns to scale; that is, doubling all its inputs more than doubles its output. What can be inferred about the firm's short-run costs?

Carefully explain the difference between diseconomies of scale and diminishing returns.

1. Complete the table (Table 1) below, then draw the following curves:
• Short-run average product (AP) curve;
• Short-run marginal product (MP) curve.

Use the information from the completed table and the graphs to identify the three stages of production and explain why the firms short run production has only one rational stage of production.
