Forming the Lagrange function.B. Finding the critical values for K and L.C. Test the second order conditions to ensure that you have found a maximum.D. Evaluate the total function at the critical values.With given PK=28, PL=10, and budget B=\$4000.3. A manufacturer of parts for a tricycle (3-wheel bicycle) industry sells 3 tires X for every bike frame Y. Thus, If the demand functions are:Total costs are:Find the profit maximizing level of a) output, b) price, and c) profit.A. Form the profit function after finding Px and PY.B. Form the Lagrange function.C. Calculate the critical values for X and Y.D. Evaluate the total function at the critical values.E. Test the second order conditions to ensure that you have found a maximum.Optimization4. A firm produces two goods in pure competition and has the following total revenue and total cost functions:A. Write the profit function.B. Calculate the critical values for X and Y.C. Evaluate the total function at the critical values.D. Test the second order conditions by taking the second derivatives and evaluating the signs to ensure that you found a maximum.Interest Compounding5.
