A firm currently uses 50,000 workers to produce 120,000 units of output per day. The daily wage per worker is \$100, and the price of the firm's output is \$48. The cost of other variable inputs is \$400,000 per day.

Assume that total fixed cost equals \$900,000. Calculate the values for the following four formulas:

• Total Variable Cost = (Number of Workers x Worker's Daily Wage) + Other Variable Costs
• Total Costs = Total Variable Costs + Total Fixed Costs
• Total Revenue = Price * Quantity
• Average Variable Cost = Total Variable Cost / Units of Output per Day
• Average Total Cost = (Total Variable Cost + Total Fixed Cost) / Units of Output per Day

Complete the following:

• Calculate the firm's profit or loss. Is the firm making a profit or a loss?
• Explain the Short Run Shut Down Rule. Should this firm shut down? Please explain.

Provide a report to the management of the firm that discusses what should be done.
