In the average variable cost, it gets muffled to a certain degree, because remember the average variable cost at any one of these points, and we calculated it already several times. They will use the same relative calculations. We are right over there. Let me scroll, see my scrolling thing. So another way to think about it, referring to the last video, if you're taking any one of these points, your average variable cost is the slope between that point and the origin, while the marginal cost is the slope between that point and the previous point, so the marginal cost is really showing how much are those next incremental oranges costing you, not just how much are all of the oranges on average costing you.
Actually, let's look at the marginal costs first, because this is interesting, and this kind of goes in with this narrative of at first, those first oranges that we bought were expensive. Please share it so others can also benefit from it. And then Scenario D we have in white. If you have time for 2 rabbits, you have time for 240 berries. The shape of an s-curve depends on the nature of your project. That's why the marginal cost curve captures, captures how much those that very next set of 1,000 gallons worth of oranges, how much that is costing you. We have a new lower equilibrium price.
Let me connect them in a color that I haven't used it. Now, what happens at this price? So 3, if you have time for 3 rabbits you have time for about 180 berries on average. People could be making money at this price, it just says that they're neutral whether or not they should be doing this business. It says oranges are bad for you, for whatever reason. And so, over the long term, you're going to shift back to this line. So if you were to spend your entire day going after rabbits, all your free time out-- making sure you have time to sleep, and get dressed, and all those type of things.
We talked about what our average total costs and average variable costs and marginal costs are, if we are running an orange juice making business. Now let's think about what happens at the market level. Now, in the near term, we have a new equilibrium price, and we have a new equilibrium quanitity. Our change in total costs is going to be 1,500 minus 1,000. If there's no profit there, it really doesn't make sense for them to continue, or at least it doesn't make sense for all of them to continue in that business. And so you're able to get to 180 berries and I'll do one more scenario here.
This is a plot that we looked at in the last video, when we thought about software developers. This is the entire market. A lot of economic profit, a lot of entrance into the market, price goes down, supply goes up. Any appearance of academic dishonesty will result in a ban. And so this is my berries axis. Other things in paribus, other things equal. Let's say that's our current demand, that is our current demand curve, and then what I'm going to add to this is I'm going to add the price at which firms, the suppliers of the orange juice make are neutral with returns to economic profit, or when economic profit is equal to 0.
So that gets us right about there. Let's just say, and I'm going to simplify it relative to what we saw in the last video. So it'll be right over there. All of these points right over here are-- these points, for example, it is very easy for me to get 1 rabbit and 200 berries.

The incremental from this to this is only 250. You're not changing the tools you use or the technology. If your question is gone it's probably on account of Rule 1. These are all points on you, as a hunter gatherer, on your production possibilities frontier. For example, suppose an economy can make two goods: chocolate donuts and cattle prods. And on the other axis I'll have the number of berries. .
So Scenario F is you spend all your time looking for berries. The shape of an s-curve depends on the nature of your project. Connect with Shohreh via , , , , ,. When I say economic profit is 0, sometimes that's called the normal profit, when economic profit is 0. You get back to the long run supply curve.
But if you spend all your time getting rabbits you're not going to have any time to get berries. If I have 200 berries, I could get more rabbits. Remember, the average cost, the average fixed and the average variable and the average total cost, these are each of those costs divided by the total amount of juice that I'm producing. Tell me, what is the use of an s-curve? Here is an example of a back-loaded project: To give you a perspective of a front-loaded and back-loaded s-curve vs. So first, let's call this first scenario Scenario A. What's probably happening is, as I start buying more and more oranges from the local distributors, I get a better, better deal.
