Please use the following information and use it to complete a few calculations, and answer questions in your paper.  The paper ought to be written as a brief  (1-1.5 pages) report that includes your calculations and a short explanation of what the firm should do if it is making a loss. 

A firm currently uses 40,000 workers to produce 100,000 units of output per day.

The daily wage per worker is $80, and the price of the firm’s output is $41. The cost of other variable inputs is $400,000 per day. Assume that total fixed cost equals $900,000. (Note: Assume that output is constant at the level of 100,000 units per day.)

Calculate the values for the following variables using the formulas that are given:

  • 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
  • Profit/Loss = Total Revenue – Total Costs

Complete the following:

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

Be sure to show your work. Include a reference list.
