Precision Engineering department has collected data on its average costs of production for the past 12 months. The monthly fixed cost is $4000 per month. The AVC and associated output data are presented below:
Precision Engineering is a perfectly competitive firm. Based on the information above, explain if AVC suggests the functional form: AVC = a + bQ + cQ2. (Draw a scatter diagram of AVC on Y axis and Q on X axis. Fit the scatter diagram with a 2nd degree polynomial trend line.)
The question belongs to Statistics and it is about calculating whether or not the AVC or the Average Variable Cost of the firm is in a functional form: AVC = a + bQ + cQ2 and plot the same on a graph.
