Jack Benny can get blood from a stone. If he has x stones, the number of pints of blood he can extract from them is f(x) = 2x^(1/3). Stones cost Jack w dollars each. Jack can sell each pint of blood for p dollars.

a) How many stones does Jack need to extract y pints of blood?

b) What is the cost of extracting y pints of blood?

c) What is Jack’s supply function when stones cost w each? When stones cost $8 each?

d) If Jack has 19 relatives who can also get blood from a stone in the same way, what is the aggregate supply function for blood, Y, when stones cost w dollars each?

(w)(y^3/8)

c)

S(p,w) = (8p/3w)^(1/2)
