A curve that defines the minimum average cost of producing differentlevels of output (allowing for optimal selection of all variables ofproduction) is:loloss9. Other things held constant, consumer surplus decreases as:TTTN10 Suppose the cost function is C(Q) = 100 + Q? 2Q2 + 2Q3. What are thefixed costs?$$$111.

Competitive market equilibrium is determined by:Only the most influential buyers and sellers.Only the demand curve.Only the supply curve.The intersection of the demand and supply curves.26. If Starbucks?s marketing department estimates the income elasticity of demand for its coffee to be 2.55, how will the prospect of an economic bust (expected to decrease consumers? incomes by 3 percent over the next year) impact the quantity of coffee Starbucks expects to sell?Instruction: Round your response to 2 decimal places.It will change by ___________percent.27. The head of the accounting department at a major software manufacturer has asked you to put together a pro forma statement of the company's value under several possible growth scenarios and theassumption that the company?s many divisions will remain a single entity forever. The manager is concerned that, despite the fact that the firm?s competitors are comparatively small, collectively their annual revenue growth has exceeded 50 percent over each of the last five years. She has requested that the value projections be based on the firm?s current profits of $3 billion (which have yet to be paid out to stockholders) and the average interest rate over the past 20 years (9 percent) in each of the following profit growth scenarios:a. Profits grow at an annual rate of 11 percent. (This one is tricky.)The firm's value is zeroThis growth rate is not possibleThe firm will have to shut down at this growth rateThe firm's value is infiniteInstructions: Round your responses to 2 decimal places.b. Profits grow at an annual rate of 4 percent.billionc. Profits grow at an annual rate of 0 percent.billiond. Profits decline at an annual rate of 3 percent.billion28. A firm produces output according to a production function:Q = F(K,L) = min {4K,8L}.a. How much output is produced when K = 2 and L = 3?b.
