    I need help with the following problem.

    Units of Resource
    Resources Total Output Price ResourcePrice
    1 10 $5 $10
    2 25 $5 $10
    3 35 $5 $10
    4 40 $5 $10
    5 40 $5 $10

    A. calculate the marginal revenue product (MRP = MPP * MR)
    B. Using the data in A, determine how many units
    of resources the firm will want to acquire.
    C. Suppose the output price falls from $5 to $4 to $3 to $1
    in exercise A. How would that change your answers to
    exercises A and B?
    D. Using the data in A, calculate the marginal
    factor cost.
    E. Suppose the resource price rises from $10 to $12 to $14
    to $18 to $20 as resource units go from 1 to 5. How
    would that change your answer to exercise D? How
    would it change your answer to exercise B?
