(2) The diagram below (next page) shows budget lines and an isoquant for a beer manufacturer.
It can hire labor L at a cost of w = 24 per unit, and hire capital K at a cost of r = 8 per unit. The
production function is:
q = (1.52)L0.6K0.4
L, Units of labor per hour
(a) Given the above information, what must be true, mathematically, in order for the cost
of producing q = 100 to be minimized?
(b) Does this mathematical condition hold at point x? Point y? Point z?
(c) If this mathematical condition doesn?t hold at some of these points, what is the firm
motivated to do at those points? Be specific.
