Economists estimate price elasticities more precisely using average price and quantity to computer percentage changes. Thus,
Using this formula, compute E for a popcorn price increase from 15 cents to 25 cents per ounce (Figure 4.5 on page 85).
Supply Decisions and Costs.
a. Complete the following table.
Rate of Output Total Cost Marginal Cost Average Cost
b. What is the value of fixed cost?
c. On a graph, depict marginal cost and average total cost making sure to label both cost curves on the graph. (Hint #1: You will need to calculate the columns of MC as is done on page 105 and ATC curves on page 103). (Hint #2: The total cost, total total fixed and total variable cost curves are much larger than the MC and ATC curves and do not belong on the same graph).
