a) (1 point) Nick has estimated the number of brownies produced for different numbers of
workers (see table 1). Why does output increase with more workers? Why does output
increase at a diminishing rate? Would output increase at a diminishing rate if there were
additional ovens and workspace?
b) (1 point) Cookies sell for $2 each and each requires $0.75 in ingredients. Graph the
demand for labor as a function of the wage using the data in table 1. What happens to the
number of workers hired when wages go up? How many workers will be hired and how
many cookies made at a wage of $22.50?
c) (2 points) Nick could buy a 2​nd​ oven. He estimates that the 2​nd​ oven would raise output
for any given number of workers as indicated in table 2. When his workers form a union,
they gain a wage increase from $22.50 to $24.38. What do you expect to happen to
employment and output with one oven? (How many workers will be hired and how much
produced at the new wage.) What would happen if Nick responds to the wage increase by
buying a 2​nd​ oven and then hiring workers at the wage $24.38? Would your answer
change any if there is a limited market for chocolate chip cookies so that Nick would
have to lower the price of cookies to sell more?
