cahiz84 Why is the last one wrong?
mordja Because for Profit Maxization in a labor market to occur two conditions must be met :
1. MR = MC
2. MRP = Wage rate.

Not Marginal revenue product = Marginal Cost.
Mavizo Well explained , mordja.Thanks!!!
ascruggs92 Also, MRP = MR x MP. Because MR=MC, it is also true that MRP = MC x MP. So unless MC is equal to 1, MRP cannot equal MC
