factory and $300 of peaches to another country. The milk factory sells $800 of milk to the yogurt factory and $500 of milk to consumers. The yogurt factory uses the peaches and milk to make yogurt,
and sells $2400 of yogurt to consumers and $200 of yogurt to the government. (a) Measure the economy’s GDP by value-added.
