# Project #51264 - Economics

Problem-solving question: Use the following data for a firm’s output at various levels of employment (L) to calculate:  a) its marginal physical product of labor (MPPL) schedule; (b) its (MPPL/MRCL) schedule, given a fixed wage (W = MRCL) of \$25 per hour per worker.  (c) Assuming that capital (K) is held constant at 2 machines and MPPK/MRCK = 10, what is the least-cost input-combination of labor and capital and how much output is produced with that set of resources?

Number of Workers (L)Output (Q)

1              100

2              300

3              600

4              850

5              1000

6              1100

Problem-solving question:  Use the following data for a perfectly competitive firm and the profit-maximizing input-combination rule to identify how many workers the firm will employ to maximize profits.

Number of Workers (L)MRPL                     MRCL

1                        \$200                         \$30

2                         150                             30

3                          125                             30

4                           100                             30

5                            75                              30

6                              50                              30

7                          30                              30

8                           10                              30
