Marginal Product Calculation


1. Suppose the marginal product of the 23rd worker is eight boxes of output. Average product when 23 workers are employed is five boxes per worker. We can conclude that:

A) average product is neither rising nor falling.
B) marginal product is neither rising nor falling.
C) marginal product is falling.
D) average product is rising.

2. Use the following to answer the question:
Workers    Output    MP    AP
 1                 5         5      5
 2                12        7      6
 3                21        7
 4                31      10    7.75
 5                40        9      8
 6                48        8    
 7                 6      7.71
 8                58        3    7.13
 9                60        0    6.33
 10              60       -3     5.4

Referring to the table and figure above, adding a fifth worker leads to:

A) diminishing marginal returns.
B) constant marginal returns.
C) negative marginal returns.
D) increasing marginal returns.


These multiple choice questions belong to Economics. The 1st question is about calculation of marginal product and the 2nd question is about calculation of marginal returns.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
