A $10 million penalty charged to each cigarette makerC. An increase in the demand for cigarettesD. A $4 wage increase. Looking for variable cost, wage is the price of the labor which is a VC. When we talk about cost we are talking about the supply sideIf the market price is $4, to maximize profit the firm should produce ______ thousand units and will earn a profit of approximately $_____thousand.A. 350, 350B. 350, 1400C. 300, 1200D. None of the above are correctPrice = MC (@$4.00) Q = 350 Profit = R-C (R-ATC)At a market price of ____ the firm will earn an economic profit of zero. In this case the firm should produce________.A. 3.50, 0B. 3.00, 0C. 2.00, 0D. 3.00, 300P = Min ATCIf the market price is $2.50, to maximize profit the firm should produce ______ thousand units and will earn a profit of approximately $_____thousand. Assume fixed cost is $250 thousand.A. 0, 0B. 0, -250C. 250, 125D. 250, -125At a price of $2.50 Q = 250 ATC = $3 at Q 250 (-0.50)(250) = -125 In the short run if you shut down you are stuck with your fixed costsIf the market price is $1.50, to maximize profit the firm should produce ______ thousand units and will earn a profit of approximately $_____thousand.

The farms are identical in every respect except farmer Anne bought her tractor for $500,000 and farmer Betty rents her tractor for $50,000.

Which farmer has lower costs?A. Farmer AnneB. Farmer BettyC. Neither, the costs are identicalSee notes*Long-run equilibrium price of wheat is $5 a bushel.

Less than average fixed costMC = TC/Q MC > ATC, ATC is increasingA firm employs 500 workers at a wage rate of $20, and 50 units of capital at $40 per hour.

B) diseconomies of scale. C) learning. D) economies of scope.In the perfectly competitive constant-cost parsnip market the market demand is Q=10,000 – 100p and the short-run market supply is Q=-2,000 + 200P. For each parsnip producer marginal cost equals long-run average cost at $20. In this market we would expect there to be ______ until the market price ______.A. entry, equals $20B. exit, equals $20C. exit, equals $40D. entry, equals $40Cal’s Flour Mill competes in a highly competitive market where the market price is $10 per 50 pound bag.
