Current fixed costs for the company equal \$230. Draw two graphs, both with Q on the horizontal axis: one graph shows TVC and TC, and the other shows AVC

AC, and  MC. Suppose that the government imposes a \$65 property tax hike on all businesses; how will that affect your two graphs; i.e., which cost curves will be affected and how?

Select one:

a. The property tax will shift up TC by \$65 and AC by \$65/Q (i.e., \$65 divided by Q)

b. TC and AC will both shift up by \$65/Q (i.e., \$65 divided by Q

c. MC will shift up by the amount of the tax (i.e., by \$65).

d.  TC will shift up by \$65 while AC and MC will shift down by \$65/Q . (i.e., \$65 divided by Q)
