Textbook Problem

Suppose that the production function for a product is
*x* represents the number of work- hours per month and *y* is the number of available machines. Determine the marginal productivity of (a) *x.* (b) *y.*

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The marginal productivity of *x* if the production function for a product is *x* represents the number of work-hours per month and *y* is the number of available machines.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The production function for a product is *x* represents the number of work-hours per month and *y* is the number of available machines.

**Formula used:**

For a production function of the form *x* is given by *y* is given by

For a function *f* with respect to *x* is calculated by taking the derivative of *x* and keeping the other variable *y* constant. The partial derivative of *f* with respect to *x* is denoted by

Power of

Chain rule for the function

Constant function rule for a constant

The coefficient rule for a constant

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The marginal productivity of *y* if the production function for a product is *x* represents the number of work-hours per month and *y* is the number of available machines.
