In Geometry

An isoquant (derived from the Greek word 'iso' means 'equal' and 'quant' means 'quantity') is a contour line drawn through the set of points which consist of different combina…tions of Labour (L) and Capital (K) at which the same quantity of output is produced by changing the quantities of two or more inputs. In other words, isoquant shows all the input points required to produce same level of output. It represents the combinations of inputs that can produce same quantity of output; producers will be indifferent between them. A higher isoquant refers to a greater quantity of output and a lower one, to a smaller quantity of output. Hence it is also known as "Production indifference curve", or "Equal product curve", or "Isoproduct curve". (MORE)

isoquant is the locus of the all the combination of two factorof production that yield the same level of the output

Linear Isoquant: This type assumes perfect substitutability of factors of production: a given commodity may be produced by using only capital, or only labour, or by an infinit…e combination of K and L.Input-Output Isoquant: This assumes strict complementarity[that is, zero substitutability] of the factors of production. The isoquant take the shape of a right angle. This type of isoquant is also called 'Leontief isoquant' after Leontief, who invented the input-output ananlysis.Kinked Isoquant: This assmes limited substitutability of K and L. There are only a few processes for producing any one commodity. Substitutability of factors is possibleonly at the kinks. This form is also called 'activity analysis-isoquant' or 'linear-programming isoquant', because it is basically used in linear programming.Smooth , Convex Isoquant: This form assumes continuous substitutability of K and L only over a certain range, beyond which factors cannot substitute each other. The isoquant appears as a smooth curve convex to the origin. (MORE)

The further the Isoquant is from the origin, the greater will be the level of output (i.e a higher isoquant represent a higher level of output) Two Isoquants can never inter…sect each other Isoquants always slopes downward (MORE)

Answered

An isoquant is a graph showing the same quantity of output for various combinations of inputs. Since these are all measures of quantity, they must all be positive.

Following are the properties of Isoquant Curves, 1. Convex to the origin. 2. Slopes downward to the right. 3. Never parallel to the x-axis or y-axis. 4. Never horizontal to… the x-axis or y-axis. 5. No 2 curves intersect each other. 6. Each iso quant is a part of an oval. 7. It cannot have a positive slope. 8. It cannot be upward sloping. Anonymous (MORE)

20c + 5 = 5c + 65 Divide through by 5: 4c + 1 = c + 13 Subtract c from both sides: 3c + 1 = 13 Subtract 1 from both sides: 3c = 12 Divide both sides by 3: c = 4
