30. Consider the following information about bread production at Beth's Bakery:
Worker Marginal Product
1 5
2 7
3 10
4 11
5 8
6 6
7 4
Beth pays all her workers the same wage and labour is her only variable cost. From this information we can conclude that Beth's marginal cost

45. In a perfectly competitive market, market demand is given by Qd = 50 - .5P and market supply is given by Qs = P - 10. Each identical firm has a MC = 4Q. The individual firmís supply curve (above minimum AVC) is given by the equation
a. Q = .25P
c. Q = 5
b. Q = .P - 10
d. none of the above.

46. In a perfectly competitive market, market demand is given by Qd = 50 - .5P and market supply is given by Qs = P - 10. Each identical firm has a MC = 4Q. In the long run, if minimum LRAC = 40,

c. firms will earn zero economic profit.
b. firms will exit the market.
d. firms will incur economic losses.

Answer: c

c. MC = 4Q
d. both A and B
e. both A and C.

Answer: d
