(Figure: Capital and Labor XVI) Consider the production function Q = L0.5K0.5, with MPK = L0.5/K0.5 and MPL = K0.5/L0.5. a. Define the marginal rate of technical substitution.

(Figure: Capital and Labor XVI) Consider the production function Q = L0.5K0.5, with MPK = L0.5/K0.5 and MPL = K0.5/L0.5.
a. Define the marginal rate of technical substitution.
b. Calculate the marginal rate of technical substitution for K = 5 and L = 10.
c. Figure 6.16 shows an isoquant based on the production function referred to in the question. Calculate the slope of the isoquant at point A and point B.
