**A firm discovers that when it uses K units of capital
and L units of labor it is able to**

** produce q=4K^1/4
L^3/4 units of output.**

Continue to assume that capital and labor can be hired at $40 per unit for labor and $10 for capital. In the long run if the firm produces 600 units of output, how much labor and capital will be used and what is the LR Total cost of production?

A firm discovers that when it uses K units of capital
and L units of labor it is able to
produce q=4K^1/4
L^3/4 units of output.
a) Calculate the MPL, MPK and MRTS
b) Does the production function (q=4K^1/4 L^3/4) exhibit
constant, increasing or decreasing returns to scale and
why?
c) Suppose that capital costs $10 per unit and labor can
each be hired at $40 per unit and the firm uses 225 units of
capital in the short run....

There is a firm who manufacturers and uses capital (K) and labor
(L) to product output Q such that Q=10KL. The unit price for K and
L are w = $15 and r = $5, respectively.
1).Does the firm’s production exhibit decreasing, constant, or
increasing returns to scale?
2)What is the optimal input bundle (K*, L*) to produce 480 unit
of output?
3)Derive the long run cost function.

Imagine a firm that only uses capital (K) and labor (L). Use an
isocost / isoquant diagram to illustrate the firm’s equilibrium
input mix for given prices of capital and labor and a given rate of
output. Now illustrate what happens if the price of labor falls,
and the firm wants to produce the same rate of output. What happens
to the cost of production? Compare the relative marginal products
of labor and capital (the MRTS) at the two equilibria.

A firm produces output using capital (K) and labor (L). Capital
and labor are perfect complements and 1 unit of capital is used
with 2 units of labor to produce 1 unit of output. Draw an example
of an isoquant. If wages and rent are $2 and $3, respectively, what
is the Average Total Cost?
A firm has a production function given by Q=4KL where K, L and Q
denote capital, labor, and output, respectively. The firm wants to
produce...

Suppose your firm uses 2 inputs to produce its output: K
(capital) and L (labor). the production function is q =
50K^(1/2)L^(1/2). prices of capital and labor are given as r = 2
and w = 8
a) does the production function display increasing, constant, or
decreasing returns to scale? how do you know and what does this
mean?
b) draw the isoquants for your firms production function using L
for the x axis and K for y. how are...

Does this production function exhibit a constant return to scale?
Explain your answer.
How many units of output are produced with 4 units of labor and 2
units of capital?
Suppose the firm is using 3 units...

Consider an economy that uses two factors of production, capital
(K) and labor (L), to produce two goods, good X and good Y. In the
good X sector, the production function is X = 4KX0.5 + 6LX0.5, so
that in this sector the marginal productivity of capital is MPKX =
2KX-0.5 and the marginal productivity of labor is MPLX = 3LX-0.5.
In the good Y sector, the production function is Y = 2KY0.5 +
4LY0.5, so that in this sector...
