C HAPTER 02 R ECOMMENDED P ROBLEMS S OLUTIONS MGEA01 M ICHAEL H O F ALL 2014 3. a. If resources are left unused, then this combination of production must lie inside the production possibilities frontier. So it is feasible, but it cannot be efficient. b. The transfer of resources has increased wheat production by 10 million bushels and reduced corn production by 17 million bushels. This is the opportunity cost given in the question, so production is moving to another point on the production possibilities frontier. Therefore, it is both feasible and efficient. c. The increase in the production of corn led to a decline in wheat production of 49.62 million bushels (999.62 950). If the opportunity cost is 0.666 bushels of wheat per bushel of corn, then we should get about 75.5 million more bushels of corn, which is the extra amount of corn produced. So the economy is again moving along its production possibilities frontier and the production point is feasible and efficient.

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
