Answer to Question #59140 in Microeconomics for Lisa
I need to explain fully how and why the firms the product and cost curves are functionally related thank you
The formula for production function is Q = f(K, L). Quantity is a function of the inputs used to produce it: capital and labor. In the other hand, total costs of production equals to the cost of all inputs used, so: TC = Pk*K + PL*L, where Pk - price of capital (or rent) and PL - price of labor (or wage rate). The long run total cost function C = g(Q) depends on the prices of inputs, it can be a good proxy for the opportunity cost of delivering Q, at least where we measure costs in units of present value.
Once again, excellent work. Their high quality of work and reasonable price allowed me to focus on studying for a test instead of having to come up with extemporaneous lab work that is several chapters ahead of where the test is.
Would highly recommend their work.
