b) How to plot the TFC, TVC, and TC curves in one diagram and the AFC, AVC, ATC, and MC in another diagram?

TC,TFC and TVC on the same curve

AFC, AVC, ATC and MC on the same graph

c) What is the relationship between total costs and output?

Initially, TC increases at a decreasing rate as output increases. Then, TC increases at a constant rate as output increases.
