Expert's answer

"AFC =" "Total fixed cost\\over quantity"

"=" "500\\over1000"


2000 poster

"=500\\over 2000"


10000 posters

"=" "500\\over10000"


b)Average total cost


"=" "2000+500\\over1000"



"=" "1600+500\\over2000"



"=" "500+1600+8000\\over10000"


c)The output should be at a level where the total revenue can be able to cover for variable cost for Karen to avoid a short run.
