many units of output will one unit of input produce

### How to Deal with More than One factor

The main concept is the same when computing factor productivity for more than one factor, and what you need is to quantify the ration output produced over inputs used.

When dealing with multifactor productivity, this is, calculating productivity associated to more than one factor, you want to find a common unit for all factors.

For example, you may want to compute the multifactor productivity for capital and labor and you will measure capital in dollars and labor in hours. So how can you put both inputs with the same unit?

A simple solution is to use dollars for capital and quantity the cost of labor in dollars too, so both factors use a common unit (dollars).
