problem 1: The table below shows the total production a firm will be able to obtain if it employs varying amounts of resource X while the amounts of the other resources the firm employs remain constant. find out the marginal product of each of the seven units of resource X and enter such figures in the table. Suppose the product the firm produces sells in the market for $3.00 per unit.  find out the total revenue of the firm at each of the eight levels of output and the marginal revenue product of each of seven units of resource X.  Enter such figures in the table below.
