# Suppose you have the following values for a short-run production processthat the average cost curve must be increasing average

Suppose you have the following values for a short-run production process: Q = 20, VC = 100, FC = 600 and MC = 40. Given this, we know that the:

A. average cost curve must be increasing

B. average cost curve must be decreasing

C. marginal cost curve must be increasing

D. marginal cost curve must be decreasing

52.Output for a simple production process is given by Q = KL, where K denotes capital and L denotes labour. The price of labour is €10 per unit and the price of capital is €2 per unit.

If at the current level of production the marginal product of labour is 4 while the marginal product of capital is 2 then in order to minimize your costs of production you should use:

A. more capital and less labour

B. more labour and less capital

C. more of both inputs

D. the same amount of both inputs

53.Output for a simple production process is given by Q = KL, where K denotes capital and L denotes labour. The price of labour is €10 per unit and the price of capital is €2 per unit.
