    I got a few answers but I don't know which one is correct.

    If the SMC = 80 - 0.1Q + 0.0001Q2, what would be the correct answer fo AVC?

    I'm still a bit confused.

  • Business Economics -

    Total cost can be derived by integrating the marginal cost function.
    I get TC = 9=80Q - (.1/2)Q^2 + (.0001/3)Q^3.

    Devide by Q to get AVC
