Question #47114

The table below lists points on a production possibility boundary (PPB) for an economy.

Good X 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Good Y 110 108 104 98 90 80 68 54 38 20 0

(a) Plot the points in a diagram with x on the horizontal axis and y on the vertical axis. Sketch the PPB by connecting these points.

(b) Calculatetheopportunitycostofthe1st,2nd,3rd,...10thunitofxiftheeconomyisoperatingonthe PPF. Briefly explain why the opportunity cost of x is increasing as more of it is produced.

(c) Suppose the economy is currently producing 5 units of x and 50 units of y. What is the opportunity cost of x given this production point? Explain.
