# Deriving average production function

A certain production process employs two inputs - labor (L) and raw materials (R). Output (Q) is a function of these two inputs and is given by the following relationship:

Q = 6L2 R2 - .10L3 R3.

Assume that raw materials (input R) are fixed at 10 units. The total product function (TPL) for input L is Q = 600L2 - 100L3 , what is the average product function for input L.

a. Q = 600L - 100L2

b. Q = 1200L - 300L2

c. Q = 600L2 - 100L3

d. Q = 600L - 100R2
