a) The average cost curve of Dina’s firm is:

"AC = c\/q = \\frac{(y2+1)w1 + (y2+2)w2}{q}."

It shifts upwards as the factor price w1/w2 increases and vice versa. 

b) The short-run supply curve of Dina’s firm is the part of MC curve after the intersection with AVC curve. So, S = MC = c'(q).

c) The long-run industry supply curve is the sum of all firm's supply curves.
