# Economics homework… inputs and costs

The accompanying table shows a boat manufacturerâ€™s total cost of producing boats.

 Quantity of Boats Total Cost 0 \$        450,000 1 \$        490,000 2 \$        510,000 3 \$        520,000 4 \$        540,000 5 \$        570,000 6 \$        610,000 7 \$        670,000 8 \$        750,000 9 \$        870,000

1.    What is this manufacturerâ€™s fixed cost?

2.    For each level of output, calculate the variable cost (VC). For each level of output except zero output, calculate the average variable cost (AVC), average total cost (ATC), and average fixed cost (AFC)

 Qty of boats Total Cost Variable Costs (a.) Average Variable Costs (b.) Average Total Costs (c.) Average Fixed Cost (d.) 0 \$450,000 – – – – 1 490,000 2 510,000 3 520,000 4 540,000 5 570,000 6 610,000 7 670,000 8 750,000 9 870,000

3.    What is the minimum-cost output?

4.    For each level of output, calculate this manufacturerâ€™s marginal cost (MC)

(For convenience, place the Marginal Cost between 0 and 1 boat on the second row, the Marginal Cost between 1 and 2 boats on the third row, and so on)

 Qty of boats TC Marginal Costs 0 \$450,000 – 1 490,000 2 510,000 3 520,000 4 540,000 5 570,000 6 610,000 7 670,000 8 750,000 9 870,000
