2 The Question You won a free ticket to see a concert by Eason Chan, a local pop  singer.  You cannot resell it (say, your photo ID will be checked at  entrance). Yo-Yo Ma, the world’s finest cellist, is performing on the  same night and is your next-best alternative activity. Tickets to see  Yo-Yo Ma cost $800. On any given day, you would be willing to  pay up to $1000 to see Yo-Yo Ma. Assume there are no other  costs of seeing either performer. Based on this information, what is  the opportunity cost of seeing Eason Chan?  (A) $0. (B) $200.  (C) $800.  (D) $1000. When we do not know how to solve a difficult problem,  Try to modify/simplify the setup so that the answer will  become obvious.  Have a good understanding of it. Then gradually change it back to the original problem and  see how we can solve the original problem.

    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.
