Dear TIMUCIN ONER,
In this scenario we understand two things first the company have 2 own vans (vehicles) together can make only eight delivery per day, but they need one more delivery to complete order ?
Secound we understand the meaning of marginal cost is the additional cost of producing one more unit of output means here the company have capacity to complete 8 deliveries per day, but they need one more delivery to complete order so whatever the cost is incurred to complete ninth delivery is called marginal cost.
Remember in marginal cost calculation only the cost of producing unit related expenses will incur no other expenses like salaries & fixed cost will not change for additional unit or delivery.
If the company makes the ninth delivery, it will incur $72 to rent a van and $20 fuel cost. Van drivers' salaries are fixed costs and will not change by additional delivery. Thus, the marginal cost of the ninth delivery is $92 ($72 + $20).
I hope u understand my explanation is there anything kindly let me know.
Thanks & Regards
