OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

U NIT 8-P ROBLEM SET #7 Chapter 9: Problems 6, 18, 20 Chapter 10: Problems 8, 14, 22, 30 ECON 103 Section C100 C HAPTER 9 Problem #6: The statement is wrong because it does not consider the capital inputs of the firm. Assuming that the workers all have the same skills, the twelfth worker that is hired can only be less productive than the third if the capital inputs is the same as the labour inputs.

However, since the cost of the machineries of the pump is fixed, there still is a constant marginal cost. C HAPTER 10 Problem #8: False.

If the medical school accepts more students and these students actually graduate and become doctors then the supply of doctors would greater, causing the medical costs to be lower. In the end, the medical costs may be lower, but not because doctors would not need to recoup their investments, causing the statement to be false.
