1. Essential AP Microeconomics Formulas

2. AVERAGE PRODUCT (AP)

3. TOTAL PRODUCT (TP OR Q)/LABOR (QL)

4. MARGINAL PRODUCT (MP)

5. ΔTP/ΔQL

6. PROFIT

7. TOTAL REVENUE (TR) – TOTAL COST (TC)

8. TOTAL COST

9. TC = TFC + TVCTOTAL FIXED COSTS (TFC) + TOTAL VARIABLE COSTS (TVC) Also, TC = Explicit Costs + Implicit Costs

10. AVERAGE TOTAL COST (ATC)

11. TOTAL COSTS (TC) / QUANTITY (Q)

12. AVERAGE FIXED COSTS (AFC)

13. TOTAL FIXED COSTS (TFC) / QUANTITY (Q)

14. AVERAGE VARIABLE COSTS (AVC)

15. TOTAL VARIABLE COST (TVC) / QUANTITY (Q)

16. AVERAGE REVENUE (AR)

17. TOTAL REVENUE (TR) / QUANTITY (Q)

18. IN PERFECT COMPETITION…

19. DEMAND (D) = AVERAGE REVENUE (AR) = PRICE (P)

20. MARGINAL REVENUE (MR)

21. ΔTR / ΔQ (OR ΔTR / ΔTP)

22. MARGINAL COST (MC)

23. ΔTC / ΔQorΔTVC / ΔQ

24. PROFIT MAXIMIZATION POINT

25. WHERE MC = MR

26. “BREAKEVEN” POINT

27. WHERE P = ATC

28. SHUTDOWN POINT

29. WHERE P = AVC

30. Utility Maximization occurs when…

31. (MU/P)A = (MU/P)ADon’t forget the “PER DOLLAR”

32. (MP/P)L = (MP/P)KDon’t forget the “PER DOLLAR”

33. What is true of MR and TR when Edis INELASTIC?

34. If Inelastic, MR < 0TR must be decreasing

35. What is true of MR and TR when Edis ELASTIC?

36. If elastic, MR > 0, TR must be increasing

37. For Factor Markets, what determines a firm’s profit-maximizing hiring decision?

38. If MU/P for good A is less than MU/P for good B, what should a rational consumer do?

39. A rational consumer should buy less A and more B until MU/P is equal for both goods

40. If Marginal Private Benefit (MPB) is less than Marginal Social Benefit (MSB), what is likely the reason? How could this be ‘fixed’

41. A Positive Externality,use a PER UNIT subsidy to increase output to Social optimal level

42. If Marginal Social Cost (MSC) is greater than Marginal Private Cost (MPC), what is likely the reason? How could this be fixed?

43. A Negative Externality, use a PER UNIT Tax to decrease output to the social optimal level

44. If the Gini Coefficient is higher than most countries… what does this mean? What could a country do to effectively decrease the Gini Coefficient?

45. High Gini Coefficient means more unequal INCOME DISTRIBUTION. Gov’t could impose a PROGRESSIVE tax or some other policy to re-distribute wealth from upper to lower class.

46. What graph will always be both ALLOCATIVELY and PRODUCTIVELY efficient?

47. A firm in PERFECT COMPETITION – in Long-Run Equilibrium
