Mod3 case 3 | Business & Finance homework help


Before beginning this assignment, make sure you have gone carefully  through all of the required readings for this module.  It is very  important to carefully absorb both the general concepts as well as the  numerical examples in the background readings.  For this assignment, you  will have to answer some purely conceptual questions as well as some  numerical problems.  For conceptual questions, make sure to thoroughly  explain your answers and to cite specific readings from the required  background materials to explain your answers.  For numerical problems,  make sure to show all of your work and explain how you arrived at your  answers (partial credit can be given if you get the final answer wrong  but do some of the steps correctly). Note that you need to use Microsoft  Excel to do the graphs for the numerical problems.

Case Assignment

Part A: Conceptual questions

  1. Suppose you own a television factory and at your current level of  output you have average total cost of $800 per television, average  variable costs of $700 per television, and a marginal cost of $400.  If  the price your buyers are willing to pay is $500, should you decrease or  increase production?  Explain your reasoning, and make sure to cite at  least one of the required readings in your answer.
  2. You are the owner of a restaurant, and currently you have only one  waiter.  While this keeps costs down, many of your customers go home  because they are tired of waiting in line or waiting for their order.   You hire four more waiters and waitresses, and you are now able to serve  a dramatically higher number of customers.  Seeing the huge  productivity gains from hiring more staff, you then hire 20 more waiters  and waitresses.  However, you are not able to serve any more customers  than you were able to when your staff size was only four.  In fact, your  restaurant has become overly crowded because there is not enough room  in your restaurant for all of your staff.  You are confused as to why  hiring four more staff members increased your productivity, but hiring  20 more did not.  What concept from the background readings best  describes what happened in this case?  Explain your reasoning.

Part B: Quantitative problems

The following table gives the total weekly output of bicycles at Al’s Bicycle Town.
