where Q represents the quantity of widgets produced, K represents the annual capital input and L represents annual labor input.

(a) For K = 10, what is the average productivity of labor equal to?
-do i substitute k=10 into Q, and then what do i do to find the average productivity of labor?

(b) At what level of labor input does this average productivity reach a maximum? How many widgets are produced at this point?
