Question 1 3 / 3 pts Use the information below to answer questions 1-6 Consider an economy that produces only two goods: fresh apricots and dried apricots. In this economy, the technology of producing dried apricots is to place fresh apricots on special racks and allow them to dry in the sun. Fannie’s Farms is the only company that grows fresh apricots, while Darryl’s Dried Victuals is the only producer of dried apricots. Fannie’s sells some of its apricots directly to consumers for consumption. The relevant revenue and cost information for each of the two firms in the economy is given below: Darryl's Dried Victuals Revenue from selling dried apricots: $2,300,000 Cost of buying fresh apricots from Fannie’s: 1,200,000 Interest on funds borrowed to buy drying racks: 250,000

Use the income approach to calculate nominal GDP. Fill in the blanks in the table below. Enter numbers with no commas, no dollar signs and no decimals. For example, if your answer is $12,000 you would enter 12000 into the appropriate box. a. Total wages b. Interest c. Rent d.Total profit* e. Total taxes Nominal GDP =(a+b+c+d+e) *hint: get total profit by adding your answers for #1 and #2! Answer 1: Correct! 1800000 Answer 2: Correct! 250000 Answer 3: Correct! 300000 Answer 4: Correct! 450000 Answer 5: Correct! 300000 Answer 6: Correct! 3100000 Question 4 3 / 3 pts Now let’s use the expenditure approach to calculate nominal GDP. So here we will add up all consumer spending on FINAL goods in this economy. Remember that the final goods in this economy are fresh apricots and also dried apricots. We have to be careful not to double count here though because some of the fresh apricots produced by Fannie are used by Darryl to make dried apricots.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
