Marginal cost - the derivative of the cost function with respect to quantity.

Average cost - the cost function divided by quantity (q).

Does marginal cost curve always intersect the average cost curve at the average cost curve's lowest point?

When the marginal cost is below the average total costs or the average variable costs,then the AC would be declining.When marginal cost is above the average cost then the average cost would be increasing.Therefore the marginal cost should intersect with the average cost at the lowest point in order to pull the average cost upwards.


When marginal cost is less than the average total cost the average total cost is falling why?

as a marginal cost is the cost of the next product produced, if this is less than average cost, when you continue to produce more products the lower marginal cost will have an affect on the average and cause it to fall.


6 If the average total cost curve is falling what is necessarily true of the marginal cost curve If the average total cost curve is rising what is necessarily true of the marginal cost curve?

When average total cost curve is falling it is necessarily above the marginal cost curve. If the average total cost curve is rising, it is necessarily below the marginal cost curve.
