# Explain the relationship between MP and TP.

Asked by Topperlearning User 25th April 2016, 2:13 PM

Here the table and the diagram below shows the following relationship between MP and TP:

• Till the third unit of variable factor, MP increases from 4 to 28 units and the TP increases for every additional unit. So long as MP is increasing, TP is increasing at increasing rate.
• But when MP starts diminishing at the 4th unit of variable factor input and the TP increases only at a decreasing rate.
• When 7th unit was applied, MP is zero, there is no addition to TP and TP is at maximum level.
• When MP is negative, TP starts declining at the 8th unit. TP diminish from 84 to 80 and the MP is negative -4.

 Units of Fixed Factor Units of Variable Factor TP MP 1 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 1 2 20 16 1 3 48 28 1 4 68 20 1 5 80 10 1 6 84 4 1 7 84 0 1 8 80 -4
