Suppose that tickets to the university basketball games cost $10 for students, and that you must wait in line one-half hour for tickets.

In addition, you have a part-time job that allows you to choose your own hours, and pays $8/hour. a) What is the opportunity cost of buying a ticket? $10 Profit – From Selling The Ticket - $ 4 Opportunity Cost For Waiting In Line ½ hour. =$ 6 Total Opportunity Cost b) Assuming you have already purchased a ticket, what is the opportunity cost of attending the game in person versus watching on television? +4 – Waiting In Line +10 – Ticket Price $14 = Total Cost In Person +4 – Waiting In Line +20 – Selling The Ticket c) Suppose that the game is on a day in which you have a final exam scheduled.
