    Businesses and firms benefit from Economies of scale i.e bulk buying/finance

    Bigger firms have access to higher credit because banks trust them to finance their deals as they are aware they will pay the loans back and are efficient. The firms can then use the loans to finance products/advertise

    mainly multi-choice but you can use economies of scale in evaluation in data response

    I know its good, learn finance i.e they get lower interest rates on their loans/bulk buying/risk bearing (can spread risk through investors) /specialisation

    Use these! and then explain them and link whenever you can.
    p.s don't forget to mention the obvious point that all of these attempt to lower AC as output increases
