    Cost Data

    Consider the following cost functions:
    TC = 20 + 4Q
    TC = 20 + 2Q + 0.5Q2
    TC = 20 + 4Q - 0.1Q2

    Using Excel, calculate all cost curves using a range of quantity from 0 to 15.
    Total cost
    Total fixed Cost
    Total variable cost
    Average total cost
    Average fixed cost
    Average variable cost
    Marginal cost

    Plot these curves on graphs
    Compare the cost curves and discuss their characteristics.
