Question details

In the following diagram you are given two technologies, A and B, which can produce 100 meters of cloth. Technology A uses 1 worker and 4 tonnes of coal, while technology B uses 4 workers and 2 tonnes of coal. The diagram also depicts three examples of isocost curves, NM, GF and JH. The wage and the price of coal are denoted by w and p, respectively 10 6 ad Number of workers In period 1, the wage cost and the price of coal are (w, p) ($10, $20) and in period 2, the wage cost and the price of coal change to (w. p) ($20. $10) Which of the following statements is correct? Technology A is cheaper than Technology B in both periods. O Technology B is cheaper than Technology A in both periods. O Technology A is cheaper in period 1 and Technology B is cheaper in period 2 ( Technology B is cheaper in period 1 and Technology A is cheaper in period 2.

Consider the technologies and costs from the previous problem. In period 1, the wage and the price of coal are (w. p) - ($10. $20) and the frm uses technology B. In period 2, the wage cost and the price of coal change to (w. p) - ($20, $10). The price of the cloth is $2 per meter in both periods. Which of the following statements is correct? 10 Number of workers O In period 1, the frms proht per 100 meters of cloth is $100. @ İf the firm employs technology B in both periods, then the proht level would be the same in bath periots. e The economic rent of switching to technology A in period 2 is $60. There is a positive economic rent in switching from technology B to A in period 2

I got the first question answered but I can't seem to get an answer for the second image. (the second image is based off the first image).
