#### Suppose that hospitals use nurses (N) doctors (D) to perform surgeries (Q). The production function Show more Suppose that hospitals use nurses (N) doctors (D) to perform surgeries (Q). The production function for surgeries is: Q = F(N;D) where F(N;D) is some function that increases in N and D.

Assume that the marginal products of N and D are diminishing Suppose that in the short run a hospital hires only robots (in addition to the one doctor). What is the underlying short-run production technology? What does the hospitals choice imply about the relative marginal products of nurses and robots? Show less
