Textbook Problem

If the joint cost function for two products is

(a) find the marginal cost (function) with respect to *x.*

(b) find the marginal cost with respect to *y.*

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The marginal cost with respect to *x* if the joint cost function for two products is given by

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The joint cost function for two products is given by

**Formula used:**

For a joint cost 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 cost with respect to *y* if the joint cost function for two products is given by
