Calculate the firmâ€™s profit
A firm currently uses 50,000 workers to produce 120,000 units of output per day. The daily wage per worker is $100, and the price of the firm’s output is $48. The cost of other variable inputs is $400,000 per day. (Note: Assume that output is constant at the level of 120,000 units per day.)Assume that total fixed cost equals $900,000. Calculate the values for the following four formulas:Total Variable Cost = (Number of Workers x Workerâ€™s Daily Wage) + Other Variable Costs
Total Costs = Total Variable Costs + Total Fixed Costs
Total Revenue = Price * Quantity
Average Variable Cost = Total Variable Cost / Units of Output per Day
Average Total Cost = (Total Variable Cost + Total Fixed Cost) / Units of Output per Day
