The short run is the same for all firms.
The long run is the time frame in which the quantities of all resources can be varied.
The short run for a firm can be longer than the long run for the same firm.
In the short run, a firm cannot change the amount of capital it uses. Therefore the cost of capital is a
The total product curve shows the relationship between total product (output) and____________; and the total cost curve shows the relationship between...
the quantity of labour; the quantity of labour
the quantity of output; the quantity of labour
the quantity of all inputs; the level of output
the quantity of labour; the level of output
The marginal product of labour is the change in_______;__________and the marginal cost is the change in.
average product from employing one more worker; average cost from employing one more worker
total revenue from employing one more worker; total cost from employing one more worker
total output from employing one more unit of capital; total cost from employing one more unit of capital
total cost from employing one more worker; total cost from producing one more unit of output
The law of decreasing returns states that as a firm uses more of a
variable input, output will begin to fall immediately.
variable input, with a given quantity of fixed inputs, the revenues eventually decrease.
variable input, with a given quantity of fixed inputs, the marginal product of the variable input eventually decreases.
fixed input and a variable input, the marginal product of the fixed input and the marginal product of the variable input both decrease.
Average product is equal to__________; and average cost is equal to____________.
total product Ã· quantity of labour; total cost Ã· quantity of labour
output Ã· quantity of labour; total cost Ã· output
marginal product Ã— quantity of labour; total cost Ã— quantity of labour
marginal product + total product; marginal cost + total cost
When a firm's long-run average total cost falls as its output increases, the firm is experiencing
constant returns to scale.
decreasing cost of marginal returns.
decreasing marginal returns.
economies of scale.

A firm's marginal revenue is
the change in total revenue that results from employing one more worker.
the change in total revenue that results from an increase in the demand for the good or service.
the change in total revenue minus the change in total cost.

For a perfectly competitive firm, the market price of a good is
a given which the firm cannot change.
determined by the firm in order to maximise its profit.
equal to the firm's marginal revenue.
Answers A and C are correct
A perfectly competitive firm will maximise profit when the quantity produced is such that the
price exceeds the firm's marginal cost by as much as possible.
firm's marginal revenue is equal to the price.

firm's marginal revenue exceeds its marginal cost by the maximum amount possible.
A perfectly competitive firm should shut down in the short run if price falls below the minimum of
average variable costs.
average total cost.
A perfectly competitive firm's decision on shut-down _______; whereas its decision on exit _______.
occurs in long run; occurs in short run
determines the level of price; determines the level of output
determines the level of output; determines the level of price
occurs in short run; occurs in long run
In the long run, a firm in a perfectly competitive market will
remove all competitors and become a monopolistically competitive firm.
make zero normal profit but its owners will make an economic profit.
remove all competitors and become a monopoly.
make zero economic profit, so that its owners earn a normal profit.
A monopoly produces a product ________ and there ________ barriers to entry into the market.

equals marginal cost and which are less than price.
