A perfectly competitive firm hires its machines at a constant rental rate of r = 5 euros per unit and its workers at a constant wage rate of w = 4 euros per unit. It can also sell as much output as it wishes at the ruling market price of P = 40 euros. The firm's production function is given by:  

 Q = K0.25 L0.5

where L  is labour and K  is capital.
