a. Complete the cost schedule for this firm by cal-
culating TC, MC, ATC, and AVC. Remember to
record the MC figures between the rows of output
and total cost.
b. Draw a scale diagram and plot ATC, AVC, and
MC.
c. Below which price should this firm choose to pro-
duce zero output?
d. If the market price per napkin is $0.80, what is this
firm’s profit-maximizing level of output? Since MC
is calculated between the rows of the output levels
given, state the range of output in which the profit-
maximizing level of output will fall. Do the same
for market prices of $0.60 and $1.00.
e. Calculate the firm’s profit per unit and total profit
per day at an output level of 450 napkins per day
and at a market price of $0.70.Microeconomics
