a. Calculate the accounting profit for Gomez’s pottery firm. $ 37,000 

$ 37,000 = 71,000 - ($10,500 for the helper + $4,500 for rent + $19,000 for materials)

b. Now calculate Gomez's economic profit. $ 8,000 

$ 8,000 = 37,000 - ($5,000 of forgone interest + $21,000 of forgone salary + $3,000 of entrepreneurship)
