• Using the numbers that you calculated above, explain the relationship between the marginal cost and average variable cost. Using the same numbers, explain the "marginal cost" in terms of additional inputs needed to produce a marginal unit of output.
• If the output price was \$62, how many units of output would the firm produce? Explain. Please show work.
