A firm faces fixed costs of £45 and a short-run variable costs (SAVC).
Output SAVC SAFC SATC STC SMC
(a) State clearly the formula for calculating SAFC SATC STC and SMC, where SAFC is the short-run average fixed cost; SATC is the short-run average total cost; STC is the short-run total cost; and SMC is the short-run marginal cost
(b) Use the formulas stated at (a) to calculate (by showing workings) SAFC SATC STC and SMC, where SAFC is the short-run average fixed cost; SATC is the short-run average total cost; STC is the short-run total cost; and SMC is the short-run marginal cost.
(c) Fill in the remainder of the table, where SAFC is the short-run average fixed cost; SATC is the short-run average total cost; STC is the short-run total cost; and SMC is the short-run marginal cost.
(d) Plot SAVC, SAFC, SATC and SMC, on a graph checking that SMC goes through the minimum points of SAVC and SATC.
(e) The firm finds that it is always receiving orders for six units per week. Advise the firm on how to minimize its costs in the long run.
