To determine

What shapes would you expect each of the following cost curves to have:

Fixed cost, Variable Cost, Marginal Cost, Average Total Cost and Average variable cost?

Explanation

Fixed Cost: are the costs that remains fixed irrespective of the level of production.

Shape of fixed is as follows:

Variable Cost: are costs that vary with the level of production.

Average total cost  :( is simply referred as average cost) is calculated by dividing the total cost by the quantity of output.

ATC=TCN

Where,

ATC = Average Total cost

TC = Total Cost

N = Quantity of output

Average variable cost : is known as the average of the variable cost so it is calculated by dividing the variable cost by quantity of output
