# Marginal Productivity Repeat Exercise 63 for the production function given by f ( x , y ) = 100 x 0.75 y 0.25 .Marginal Productivity Consider the Cobb-Douglas production function f ( x , y ) = 200 x 0.7 y 0.3 . When x = 1000 and y = 500 , find(a) the marginal productivity of labor, ∂ f / ∂ x (b) the marginal productivity of capital, ∂ f / ∂ y .

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The marginal productivity that is fx at x=1000 and y=500 if the Cobb-Douglas production function is modeled by f(x,y)=100x0.75y0.25.

Explanation

Given information:

The Cobb-Douglas production function is modeled by f(x,y)=100x0.75y0.25.

Formula used:

Consider the function z=f(x,y) then for the value of zx consider y to be constant and differentiate with respect to x and the value of zy consider x to be constant and differentiate with respect to y.

Calculation:

Consider the provided production function is,

f(x,y)=100x0.75y0.25

Partially derivative of the function f(x,y)=100x0.75y0.25 with respect to x.

fx(x,y)=x(100x0.75y0.25)=100y0.25x(x0

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The marginal productivity that is fy at x=1000 and y=500 if the Cobb-Douglas production function is modeled by f(x,y)=100x0.75y0.25.
