Marginal factor cost, abbreviated MFC, indicates how a firm's total factor cost is affected by hiring one more or one fewer worker. Two related concepts are total factor cost and average factor cost.

AVERAGE TOTAL COST CURVE A curve that graphically represents the relation between average total cost incurred by a firm in the shortrun product of a good or service and the quantity produced. The average total cost curve is constructed to capture the relation between average total cost and the level of output, holding other variables, like technology and resource prices, constant. The average total cost curve is one of three average curves. The other two are average variable cost curve and average fixed cost curve. A related curve is the marginal cost curve.
