42 Production cost Cost equation Describe the practical significance of the y-intercept and slope of this line. Marginal cost: m = \$25 50 Using Slope as a Rate of Change 150 The y-intercept ͑0, 3500͒ tells you that the cost of producing zero units is \$3500. This is the fixed cost of production—it includes costs that must be paid regardless of the number of units produced. 42. Economists call the cost per unit the marginal cost. If the production increases by one unit, then the “margin,” or extra amount of cost, is \$25.
