A firm currently uses 40,000 workers to produce 180,000 units of output per day. The daily wage per worker is \$100, and the price of the firm's output is \$28. The cost of other variable inputs is \$500,000 per day. (Note: Assume that output is constant at the level of 180,000 units per day.)

Assume that total fixed cost equals \$1,200,000. Calculate the values for the following four formulas:

• Total Variable Cost = (Number of Workers x Worker’s Daily Wage) + Other Variable Costs
• Total Costs = Total Variable Costs + Total Fixed Costs
• Total Revenue = Price * Quantity
• Average Variable Cost = Total Variable Cost / Units of Output per Day
• Average Total Cost = (Total Variable Cost + Total Fixed Cost) / Units of Output per Day

Complete the following:

• Calculate the firm’s profit or loss. Is the firm making a profit or a loss?
• Explain the Short Run Shut Down Rule. Should this firm shut down? Please explain
