# Average Production Repeat Exercise 35 for the production function given by f ( x , y ) = x 0.25 y 0.75 . Average Production The Cobb-Douglas production function for an automobile manufacturer is f ( x , y ) = 100 x 0.6 y 0.4 where x is the number of units of labor and y is the number of units of capital. Estimate the average production level when the number of units of labor x varies between 200 and 250 and the number of units of capital y varies between 300 and 325.

To determine

To calculate: The average production level of Cobb-Douglas production function for an automobile is f(x,y)=x0.25y0.75 when x varies between 200 units and 250 units and y varies between 300 units and 325 units.

Explanation

Given information:

The average production level of Cobb-Douglas production function for an automobile is f(x,y)=x0.25y0.75 when x varies between 200 units and 250 units and y varies between 300 units and 325 units.

Formula used:

The average value of integrable function z=f(x,y) over the region R with area A is

Average value=1ARf(x,y)dxdy

Calculation:

Consider production level of Cobb-Douglas,

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

Here x varies between 200 units and 250 units and y varies between 300 units and 325 units.

The area of region is 1250 units.

Now apply, the formula of the average value of integrable function f(x,y)=x0.25y0.75 with x varies between 200 units and 250 units and y varies between 300 units and 325 units.

Average value=11250300325200250(x0.25y0.75)dxdy=11250300325[(100y0
