Microeconomics Homework Problem 1: C(Q) = 100 + 20Q + 15Q^2 + 10Q^3 a) Fixed Cost (doesn’t change depending on output produced) = 100 b) Variable Cost of producing Q = 10 units: 20*10 + 15*10^2 + 10*10^3 = 200 + 1,500 + 10,000 = 11,700 c) Total Cost of producing Q = 10 units: C(10) = 100 + 20*10 + 15*10^2 + 10*10^3 = 11,800 Alternatively, we have Total Costs of Producing Q=10 units = Fixed Costs + Variable Costs of producing Q = 10 units = 100 + 11,700 = 11,800 d)
