# The loss minimization point firm is A. when at the minimum

### Customer Question

The loss minimization point for a firm is
A. when at the minimum point on the average total cost curve.
B. when at the minimum point on the average variable cost curve.
C. where marginal cost equals marginal revenue.
D. when total revenue is maximized.
To find the output at which the firm maximizes its profits you MUST know the
firm's
A. average total costs.
B. average variable costs.
C. average fixed costs.
D. marginal costs.
To maximize profits, a perfectly competitive firm should produce at an output up to
the point where
A. the difference between price and marginal cost is at its maximum.
B. total cost equals total revenue.
C. price equals marginal cost.
D. total revenue equals variable cost.
Marginal analysis is useful to a firm that seeks to
A. maximize its profits, but not minimize its losses.
B. minimize its losses, but not maximize its profits.
C. both maximize its profits and minimize its losses.
D. neither maximize its profits nor minimize its losses.
The firm's short-run supply curve runs up the marginal cost curve
A. to the shutdown point.
B. from the shutdown point all the way up the curve.
C. to the break-even point.
D. from the break-even point all the way up the curve.
At the level of output where marginal revenue equals marginal cost, assume that the
price of a competitive firm's product is between the firm's average total cost curve
and its average variable cost curve. In this case the firm would
A. decrease output to reduce the costs.
B. continue to operate in the short run.
C. shut down.
D. increase output to increase profit. The lowest point on the firm's long-run supply curve is
A. the shutdown point.
B. the break-even point.
C. between the shutdown point and the break-even point.
D. None of the choices are the lowest point on the firm's long-run supply curve.
9.) The minimum possible average total cost of a computer repair shop is \$40 and the
minimum possible average variable cost is \$30. If you operate this shop, you will
shut it down immediately if the equilibrium price of computer repairs falls below
A. \$40.
B. \$35.
C. \$30.
D. \$20.
10.) A firm's long-run supply curve
A. runs up its marginal cost curve starting at the break-even point.
B. runs up its marginal cost curve starting at the shutdown point.
C. is identical to the firm's entire marginal cost curve.
D. runs up the firm's marginal cost curve from the shutdown point to the breakeven
point.
11.) Which statement is false?
A. The minimum point of the AVC curve is the shutdown point.
B. The minimum point of the ATC curve is the breakeven point.
C. The firm's short-run supply curve runs up the marginal cost curve from the
shutdown point all the way up the curve.
D. None of these statements are false.
12.) Which statement is false?
A. The firm's short-run supply curve runs along the MC curve from the shutdown
point to the break-even point.
B. The MC curve intersects the ATC curve at the latter's minimum point.
C. Total revenue = price x output sold.
D. None of these statements are false.

A. 30.
B. 45.

A. 30.
B. 40.
C. 55.
D. 70.
