Assume that input prices are constant at r = 1, w = 1, with technology which consists of 5 processes having the following properties:

Process Inputs Capital

(machine hours)

Required Labor

(man hours)

Output per period

(in tons)

P1 7.5 1.0 10

P2 5.0 2.0 10

P3 3.75 3.0 10

P4 2.5 5.0 10

P5 0.0 12.0 10

A producer can purchase labor without limit, but can purchase machine-hour only up to a total of 75. Calculate
